Have you been dreaming about seeing the Northern Lights dancing in the dark northern skies? Then this Private Luxury Northern Lights Jeep Tour is the best way to go on a chase for the wonderful lights that leave everyone in awe.
The Northern Lights, Norðurljós in Icelandic, are a beautiful display of lights dancing in the dark skies, almost resembling a vast fire viewed from a distance, with brilliant flames blazing in constant motion covering the entire sky.
The Northern Lights have fascinated humans for centuries and they still do, with their bright colors and magical movement. We know today that the Northern Lights are caused by solar winds colliding with the Earth’s magnetic field, they occur in the upper part of the atmosphere and gain their colors according to the altitudes where they occur, while shapes are related to the acceleration imparted on the particles.
Northern Lights can be seen in Iceland in the winter months, from September to March and, when spotted, they are some of the most fascinating things one can ever experience in life.
On our Private Luxury Northern Lights Keep Tour, we pick you up from your hotel in Reykjavik and drive out of the city to places with less or no light pollution, where there are the best chances to see the lights. Where are the best places to see the Northern Lights in Iceland? There is no answer to that question as Northern Lights sightings depend on many factors, including weather conditions and cloud coverage.
Every day, we check the forecast and the cloud coverage and we drive you to places that offer the best chances to see the lights, so no tour is ever the same. We have found Northern Light on our luxury tour in the Reykjanes Peninsula, on the south coast, or in Thingvellir, for example.
Hunting for Northern Lights is not an easy task, which is why we do all the work for you and drive you to the best places so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy this luxury northern lights tour, while you hear stories about the lights and look up to the sky to see them.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon never easy to predict. The Northern Lights depend on several factors, such as cloud coverage, solar activity, and general weather conditions. Every day we check the conditions and in the afternoon decide whether to operate the tour or not. If the conditions are not right, the tour will be canceled.
If the tour is canceled, you will be offered a refund.
If no northern lights are seen during the tour, we will offer you the chance to join the tour a second time or entrance tickets to Perlan’s Wonders of Iceland’s Planetarium, where you can experience the northern lights with the show Árora.
