Each winter we are welcoming increased number of people coming to Iceland in search of the famous Aurora Borealis. This fascinating natural phenomenon, known as the Northern Lights, is one of the most mesmerizing sights you will ever come across in your life. The dancing colors and shapes in the dark arctic sky will simply leave you awestruck.
You will be picked up at your hotel in a custom-built 4×4 super jeep by our expert Northern Lights Explorer guide. We leave the lights of the city behind and head into the darkness for our adventure. On the search for the Northern Lights, we might travel through some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural sights. You might not even notice it but your guide is sure to let you know what the night is hiding.
The super jeep gives us the flexibility to go off of the beaten path to locations the big buses can not reach. Giving us a greater chance to enjoy the Northern Lights without the discomfort of big crowds. We have an astronomical telescope with us on the tours. Therefore you can also enjoy the wonders of the night sky more closely. In the cold night, there is nothing like some hot chocolate to keep warm. The brave ones can even add some Icelandic Brennivín to theirs!
Our guides take photos every time the Northern lights are spotted so you can be sure to get your picture taken with the Aurora.
Venture into the night with us in the luxury of a super jeep on a quest for the spectacular, unique and ever-changing show put on by the Northern Lights.
