Embark on a thrilling northern lights hunt from Reykjavik with a private photo guide. Those eager for the best aurora borealis viewing and mementos of their life-changing experience should book while availability lasts.

On the evening of your tour, your friendly, local guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You’ll set out into the dark landscapes, and your guide will use their local knowledge and weather apps to find the best viewing spot.

As such, you have no set destination. You may head to the barren lava landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula, the valley between the continents at Thingvellir, or one of the other gorgeous locations in the south and west. Your guide can tell you about the areas you are passing through and answer any questions about life in Iceland and the science being the aurora borealis.

Once you pull up at a dark spot away from any light pollution and wait for the northern lights to appear. Your guide will provide you with hot chocolate and Icelandic kleina donuts to keep you warm, but once your eyes adjust, you’ll forget all about the cold as you marvel at the phenomenon above you.

As they swirl amongst the stars in a range of vivid colors and shapes, the northern lights create a breathtaking display. You will not doubt why so many cultures saw them as messages of the gods, mythical creatures, or ghosts of their ancestors. You also won’t need to worry about adjusting your camera to take pictures, as your guide doubles as a professional photographer. They’ll take plenty of high-quality shots of the aurora borealis and your group as you admire them, then email a link to the images the next day.

As this is a private excursion, all the photographs will be of you and your loved ones.

After a hopefully awe-inspiring display, you’ll be driven back to your accommodation in Reykjavik. If you are unlucky and don’t see the northern lights, you’ll get another chance to see them for free.

Witness the northern lights in the most inspiring way by booking this private super jeep excursion from Iceland’s capital. Check availability by choosing a date.
