Though it is the country's most densely populated region, there are still many places in west Iceland in winter to watch the aurora borealis.

Jump in a specially equipped Super Jeep to plough through the Icelandic countryside as you hunt for the perfect spot to view the sparkling Northern Lights. This tour should not be missed by any travellers who wish to tick witnessing the aurora off their bucket list. 

People journey from all over the world in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland, some booking their hunts months in advance. This fantastic tour has been created accordingly - with an absolute emphasis on the word “experience.” You’ve waited long enough, so here's your chance.  

First off, your guides will begin the hunt for the Northern Lights with a bit of pre-planning and help from the nightly Aurora forecast, to start your exploration of the night sky by heading in the best direction.

Then, you’ll be picked up at your accommodation and delivered to the quiet countryside, away from the lights and noise of the city. No matter where the hunt takes you, the Super Jeep can handle it - ploughing over lava fields, mountain tracks, and even rivers, if necessary!

If you are lucky enough to see the elusive lights appear overhead, your guide will pull over, set up the chairs and blankets, and allow you to take in the spectacular, swirling light show wrapped in cosy comfort. 

You’ll also dig into some hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries known as 'kleina', a type of twisted, yummy doughnut, all of which are included in the tour price.

Both the science and the folklore of the Northern Lights are absolutely fascinating, so be sure to ask your friendly guide to share their expertise on this incredible natural phenomenon. 

You also might want to bring your top camera gear along, to bring a bit of the show back home with you, but no two aurora appearances are ever the same.
