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 especially 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.

Very amazing trip. And the tour guide, Valthor, was very friendly and kind! Best trip in Iceland!

The experience was wonderful ! The driver was very kind and funny!!! The adventure was complete with the superjeep, incredible. I really recomend!

Fantastic excursion and highly recommend that you choose this over a more crowded bus tour. Our guide, Trigger, was personable, knowledgeable and taught us about so much while we searched for the lights. There were only 4 passengers total, which made it very private and granted us plenty of opportunities to take photos instead of being rushed or interrupted by other passengers. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

It was a great experience! Super jeep and small group! Valthorn is a very nice and warm person and really helped us to hunt the northern light! Glad that we saw this on a low kp index day!

This was THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST experience I had in Iceland. That I am booking it again. No crowds. Intimate. Wonderful! Gregor was excellent! The Northern Lights are AMAZING!

We had a great Northern Lights Tour with Valthor on Wednesday night. The super jeep was very comfortable and loved the group size of 6. It made the evening much more fun as we got to know everyone and even shared photos. We saw the lights and Valthor was very informative and also showed us a DVD on how the Northern Lights happen. Would highly recommend Gravel Travel.
