Get ready to check off the ultimate winter bucket list item with a private northern lights jeep tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to witness the aurora borealis with an expert guide who knows the best viewing spots should book this tour now.
Your evening begins with a pick-up in a private jeep from your Reykjavik accommodation. An experienced guide will drive you into the countryside, far from the interference of any city lights, to wait for the aurora borealis to appear.
The northern lights are an elusive phenomenon that cannot be guaranteed. However, booking a tour with an expert guide offers an excellent chance to see the aurora borealis in all its glory.
Your guide closely monitors the aurora borealis forecast to ensure optimal conditions for seeing the lights. Dark, clear skies offer you the best chance to experience the magic of this unmissable spectacle. When the conditions aren’t favorable, it’s best to wait for another evening.
The guide will also search for breaks in the cloud cover and use their expert local knowledge of where to find the most beautiful landscapes. Doing so helps ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
You’ll drive away from Reykjavik and into the dark night until your guide decides on the best places to search for the lights. You should dress warmly, and there will also be blankets in the jeep to keep you extra cozy while you wait.
If and when the lights appear, it’s time to pull over and set up the chairs and blankets outside for the best viewing opportunity. Witnessing the starry night sky light up in swirls of greens and purples is an incredible experience you’ll be glad you made time to see.
While you enjoy the magical show overhead, your guide will offer you hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries to round off the experience. The pastries are called “kleina,” a delicious, twisted doughnut.
This tour can take up to six hours, but it could be shorter depending on how quickly the lights show themselves. Your guide will allow time to sit and enjoy the brilliance of this natural wonder, ensuring it’s a relaxed experience.
When you’ve taken plenty of photos and are ready to call it a night, the driver will take you back to your Reykjavik accommodation.
