Experience the magic of the northern lights under the winter skies of Iceland on a small-group tour from Reykjavik. This guided tour highlights the rare opportunity to see the aurora borealis with the convenience of a super jeep and a bonus admission ticket to the Aurora Reykjavik Museum.

Begin your northern lights journey at the Aurora Reykjavik - Northern Lights Center, a science museum near the city center of the Icelandic capital. Here, you can gain insights into the science and folklore of the aurora borealis through interactive displays and exhibits.

Admission to the museum is included in the tour price. You can choose to explore the museum a few hours before the northern lights hunt or earlier in the day. The ticket is only valid within the day of the tour.

As night falls, a spacious super jeep will pick you up outside the museum and transport you to the wilderness outside the capital city. The super jeep is the perfect vehicle for northern lights hunting because of its fitting gear and wheels for the rugged Icelandic terrain.

Before hopping on the tour vehicle, don't forget to dress warmly with thermal inner layers and a weatherproof jacket. Iceland has unpredictable weather and can be extra cold on winter nights.

A professional and seasoned local guide will lead the trip for the next few hours. This guide is an expert in locating the best spots to see the auroras and knows their most exciting trivia. Feel free to ask them questions to enrich your excursion.

The aurora borealis is a natural phenomenon observed in areas like Iceland around the north polar region. Seeing it is a bucket-list experience for many travelers because of its magnificent beauty and picture-perfect scenery.

With the right weather and sky conditions, your group won't have to wait long to see the northern lights. Under the starry skies and away from light pollution, you'll enjoy the dancing lights above you with their mesmerizing colors and fascinating shapes.

The most common color of the display is green, but it can also show up in pink, blue, purple, red, or yellow. In terms of shapes, arcs, bands, and corona are usual.

While admiring the northern lights, you'll enjoy complimentary hot chocolates, biscuits, and a shot of Brennivin to keep you warm. If desired, your guide will also assist you with taking photos of the auroras against the backdrop of Iceland's stunning landscapes.

After an unforgettable winter adventure, the guide will drive you back to Reykjavik, marking the end of this five-hour trip.

While Iceland is one of the best places to see the auroras, the appearance of the northern lights is not guaranteed because they're a natural phenomenon. If you don't see them during your hunt, you can join a separate northern lights minibus tour on another date free of charge.

Don't miss this chance to see the northern lights of Iceland with the convenience of a super jeep and expert guide. Check availability now by choosing a date.
