Northern Lights by SuperJeep

This Northern Lights tour takes you in a SuperJeep from Reykjavik, far from the city lights, to observe this fascinating natural phenomenon also known as Aurora Borealis. Given clear skies and a little bit of luck, sightings can occur from autumn through to spring.

The elders say that the harsher the nights frost, the more intense the colours will be. Swirling and swaying overhead, displays are usually greenish-yellow but white, red and pink lights can also appear.

The Northern Lights SuperJeep tour is dependent on the weather and sky conditions, so we reserve the right to cancel at any time.

If the evening tour goes ahead and the Northern Lights are not seen, we will offer you the chance to go on another night for free.

So make sure you book your Northern Lights SuperJeep tour for your first night in town in order to maximise your chances of sightings. Please note that the size of your group can grow if weve had to cancel several nights in a row due to weather.
