Discover the ethereal beauty of Iceland’s Northern Lights with this small-group tour from Reykjavík. This excursion is perfect for adventurous winter-travellers hoping to see one of Iceland’s most beautiful natural attractions in a fun and exciting new way; by Super Jeep!
As the sun sets over the city, you will embark from Reykjavík by Super Jeep, travelling into the depths of Iceland’s wilderness on the hunt for the elusive, but stunning Northern Lights. Your friendly guide will pick you up from your accommodation in the capital area and whisk you away from the bright city lights.
Otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis, this phenomenon can appear in a variety of ways, from single ribbons of emerald green to a vibrant light show that dominates the whole sky. The auroras will often display in yellows, greens, reds and purples; a kaleidoscope of cosmic activity.
While watching the lights above, your experienced and knowledgeable guide will share with you some fascinating insights about the auroras, as well as mugs of cosy hot chocolate (—and even local vodka shots, for those inclined.)
As an iconic off-road vehicle, Super Jeeps are capable of tackling steep terrain. This manoeuvrability allows your guides access to out-of-reach places, devoid of light pollution. This darkness provides the best conditions for not only viewing the auroras but also capturing them in photographs.
Fear not if you’re not a dab hand behind the camera; your guides will photograph the lights for you at no extra cost!
If you are still craving to know more about the Aurora Borealis after your tour comes to an end, you’re in luck. All participants on this Super Jeep tour can enjoy a visit to Aurora Reykjavík: The Northern Lights Center, free of charge!
A fun and informative exhibition in Iceland’s capital, this centre is the perfect spot to learn more about the Northern Lights phenomena, including how they are formed, and where else they appear. You can also uncover the many ancient myths related to the Northern Lights, as interpreted by Iceland’s first settlers.
Make sure not to miss this essential Northern Lights tour during your visit to Iceland, and you can see one of the country’s best natural attractions while riding in a fun Super Jeep.
