Small-Group Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik in a Super Jeep

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Visitors from the world over flock to Iceland to catch a glimpse of the elusive northern lights. With this tour, increase your chances of seeing the spectacle when you trade in the usual plodding tour bus for an SUV specially fitted to traverse the rugged Icelandic countryside. Your guide takes your small group to hard-to-reach places in the service of helping you see the aurora borealis.
  • Chase the northern lights through Icelandic countryside from a "super Jeep"
  • Travel with a guide who knows where to see the northern lights
  • If you don’t see the lights, rebook with your operator for no extra cost
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from central Reykjavik
What to Expect
Meet in central Reykjavik and hop on board a "super Jeep," which seats no more than 15 and has monster tires that measure upward of 38 inches (95 centimeters) tall. Once settled in, travel out of the city in search of the northern lights. Your guide takes stock of weather reports and other variables to find the best locations from which to view the lights. Drive along the Icelandic countryside to secluded locations buses can’t get to, including mountaintops. Listen as your guide tells you about the science behind the northern lights phenomenon, and why Iceland is one of the world’s most accessible places to see it. Stop for photos ops if you choose. Your guide will take photos and show you how to set your camera to capture the lights. Enjoy a snack of biscuits, hot chocolate, and Icelandic liquor. Your evening tour concludes with a drop-off back in central Reykjavik.

We were expecting a small group super Jeep tour that would have an experienced guide who could help us find the best chance at spotting the northern lights. We were picked up in basically a standard coach with larger wheels, given a few sentences about the origins of the lights,

Dear LenaMoss, Thank you for your feedback. We are very disappointed to read that you did not feel that our service was up to standard. Please understand that Northern Lights are a natural phenomena and it is out of our control. Our guides are qualified to spot the best locations, where Aurora Borealis might be visible. Unfortunately, sometimes it is only from the large parking lot where other tour busses stop as well. Please accept our apologies that you have not been given enough information from our side during the tour. Once again we would like to thank you for your feedback, it is crucial for improving our services. We hope made some good memories in Iceland despite this situation and we hope you will return to make more someday. Best regards, Barte Arctic Adventures

If all you are looking for is a picture of yourself with some Northern lights in the background, this might work. We felt that the trip misrepresented themselves on many counts. 1. This was not a small group. Our bus had at least 16 and we joined another bus of 26. So there

Our tour guide had a lot of experience and knowledge about Auroras. Was really nice and friendly. I recommend 100% the tour specially in the jeep because they can go for different routes and kore darkness. In that way you have more chances to see the northern lights.
