Hop on board a super jeep and travel in style on this hunt for the breathtaking Northern Lights. Take in the stunning scenery of the Icelandic landscape while keeping an eye on the sky for this elusive but incredible sight. This tour is perfect for those who'd like to witness one of the world's greatest wonders in comfort.  You will be picked up in Reykjavík in the evening by a custom 4x4 super jeep, built to handle the rough Icelandic terrain. You will be driven far away from the lights of the city to the darkened countryside for the best possible view of these bright dancing lights.  On your journey, you will be driven by an expert guide who will look for gaps in the clouds and signs of the aurora borealis. They will pick the best location to see this beautiful light display and entertain you with information about the Icelandic nature.  On the way to the perfect spot, you will be driven through the stunning Icelandic landscape. You will travel past fields and mountains and get an unbelievable nighttime view of the country.  The super jeep, in which you will be travelling, provides comfort unmatched by the big buses. Its size allows the driver to reach places the big buses cannot. You will also travel in a small group, which makes the experience exceptionally private and peaceful. You will get a chance to exit the super jeep for a better view of the green, pink and white colours in the sky. The Northern Lights are only visible during the wintertime and only in countries in the far north. So dress warmly for this unique opportunity to see this rare natural phenomenon.  Don't miss your chance to see the incredible Northern Lights with your own eyes. Come along for an intimate, awe-inspiring experience that you will never forget. Check availability by choosing a date.

Good to know:

The Northern Lights hunt runs as long as the conditions are promising. The tours are not operational when the forecast is poor or if there is too much cloud cover, as the guides know your time in the country is precious. There is no way to guarantee that the northern lights will show, even under optimal circumstances, but if they do not, you will get another try without any additional charge on the next available opportunity.

The sky was in our favor! A beautiful aurora showed up dancing in the sky for almost two hours! The guide and his partners took a lot of pictures of the whole group and they did their best effort to keep us warm, offering hot chocolates, hand warmers and other resources. We received the pictures in high quality in the same day later. The place chosen was also amazing, about 20 minutes driving from Reykjavik, in a lake with a mountain behind, forming a dreamy landscape for this special night. It was my birthday and both the tour and the mother nature collaborated to the best present I could win: the great memories that I'll carry with me forever

We went with a huge jip, small international mix group. Our guide was funny and he took us to a place outside the city. The weather conditions were not so good, lot of clouds, but we still managed to see the lights! Spectacular view!! I would go again. From the city we could not have seen the lights be you the clouds. Highly recommended tour, especially if you have short time to see the lights. I remember one couple from Hong Kong tried to see the lights multiple time, with other companies and was not successful. It was their last night before travel when they came with us and they were super happy. The lights are wonderful and magical. I want to go again...

We were so fortunate to see a vivid display of the Northern Lights during this trip! Thankfully our guide Thor captured some amazing pictures of us as well. They are the pics we will treasure for a lifetime! Thor was very knowledgeable, helpful and engaged with the entire group. I would highly recommend this tour!

Thor was the best tour guide and excellent photographer, the weather was perfect, seeing Aurora was the best experience in my life. I recommend Gravel Travel to anyone who wish to see Aurora.

This tour was amazing. Unfortunately our first tour was cancelled due to poor weather, but the guides were very accommodating in rescheduling us for another day. And we couldn't have been luckier since we were able to see an amazing show!

This was the most expensive tour we invested in but so worth it! Small friendly group ( max 6 people) the knowledge of the guide took us to a beautiful setting to view the lights.... yes they do appear more colourful on photos but that doesn’t take away the awe inspiring feeling... it seems from talking to others that they are different every time ... more colours can be seen by the naked eye but the try glory is on film.... don’t worry if you don’t have the right camera as a photo is taken of you and are free from their FB page! Take hat and gloves as it can get cold waiting!!

This was a fabulous tour. Even with a less than ideal forecast for the evening (talking about a 1 on a scale of 1 to 9), Thor was really optimistic right from the start. And we ended up with a fantastic lights show in a location I wouldn't have even known existed right off the beaten path. The photos was a really nice touch, as you could just focus on watching the lights, and not having to capture them. Thor was a great guide, and we had a wonderful evening. Would highly recommend this tour (even with the extra cost - it is worth it for the locations you can reach that a bus wouldn't be able to).
