Set out on an aurora hunting adventure without having to worry about any other tourists by booking this private tour! Conducted in modified four-wheel-drive vehicles to discover the best viewing spots, anyone looking to witness the magic of the Northern Lights should not hesitate to arrange this adventure.
This tour starts when your expert guide picks you up from your Reykjavik accommodation; there is no waiting around for them to get dozens of other passengers, as this excursion is private. As such, you’ll immediately set out into nature and are free to ask as many questions as you like about the nature you are passing through, the Northern Lights, and all things Iceland, without worrying about interruptions from other tourists.
You have no set destination on this tour, but with the help of modern technology and the ability to read the cloud cover above, your guide will navigate the landscapes to find the best viewing spots. As such, there are many places you may witness by night as you travel, such as the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula, the historic Thingvellir National Park, and the dramatic Blue Mountains.
The best places to watch the Northern Lights are those far from artificial light, away from any cloud cover, and surrounded by natural beauty. Furthermore, you’ll want to find somewhere away from the major tourist crowds, which your four-wheel-drive will be equipped to reach.
Once you pull over, be sure to wrap up warm, so you can be in total comfort as you marvel over an ethereal display in the sky above. There are few sights as mesmerizing and unforgettable as the Northern Lights, particularly in a country as beautiful as Iceland. Sometimes they appear as bands amongst the stars, sometimes as dancing swirls, sometimes as a kaleidoscopic rain, and their colors can vary from green to purple, but they are always breathtaking.
Your guide will be able to help you photograph them to enshrine your memories here. Furthermore, they’ll provide you with hot cocoa and traditional kleina doughnuts to help keep you warm as you marvel.
After a fantastic display, you’ll return to your vehicle for the journey straight back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
