Northern Lights Hunt | Super Jeep Adventure

The Northern Lights in Iceland aren't stationary but dance wildly across the night sky.
The Northern Lights are one of the main reasons why many people come to Iceland.
The Northern Lights aren't only green, although that is the most common colour, but often red, pink, purple or white.
The Northern Lights can be seen all around Iceland, in Reykjavík, on the South Coast, in the North and Westfjords.
Wherever you will see the Northern Lights, they will be hovering over the stunning natural landscapes of Iceland.
This photo of the Northern Lights in Iceland was taken by one of the best nature photographers in the world Iurie Belegurschi.

Witness the wonders of the galaxy on this exciting tour where you'll embark on a hunt for the mysterious Aurora Borealis with the help of a Super Jeep. This adventure is for anyone wishing to feast their eyes on the Northern Lights during their stay in Iceland.

Departing from Reykjavík, you will be travelling in style via Super Jeep, a large vehicle specially designed to handle Iceland's rough terrain and reach places the big buses cannot.

You will be whisked away from the city lights and driven to the Icelandic countryside in search of the elusive Northern Lights, a natural phenomena happening in the cosmos at any given time due to solar storms. 

On a clear night and with a little luck, you will witness these incredible lights, swirling and dancing wildly around in the evening sky in colours of green, pink, purple and white. If you've only ever seen pictures of the aurora before, seeing them with your own eyes is beyond belief. 

The best possible locations for the lights' appearance are hunted after thoroughly observing the weather forecast. Clouding is taking into consideration, as well as the strength level of the auroras, before deciding on where the best spots are hiding away.  

Depending on the forecast of the night, you will either be taken to the beautiful Hvalfjöður area, a scenic fjord filled with both mountains and vast areas of flat land; or the magnificent Reykjanes Peninsula, where you'll get a better look at the rugged lava field you passed when you arrived in the country.

You might even be taken to the famous South Coast, filled to the brim with sweeping coastal views, if that is where sighting conditions are most favourable. It all depends on the circumstances at hand, but rest assured every measure will be taken for a successful hunt.

Your professional Super Jeep driver and local guide will provide an on route guidance on the surrounding natural scenery and share his or her wisdom on Iceland‘s nature while taking you through the stunning landscapes.
