Pickup details

We pick up in any Hotel in Reykjavík area, just keep in mind due to regulations some streets downtown Reykjavik are to small for superjeeps in those cases we use bus stops for pick up.

What To Expect

Your Northern Lights tour starts with pickup at your hotel in Reykjavik in the late evening for the drive outside the city. Meet up with other vehicles, and then start the search for the lights.

The route and stops you make depend on the weather and 'aurora forecast'; your driver takes you to places where you're most likely to see the lights, but of course this cannot be guaranteed due to the whims of Mother Nature. Efforts will be made to capture photos of you with the lights in the background, when possible.

Your tour ends with return to Reykjavik around midnight or 1am.

Tour vehicles have been modified with 40- or 46-inch (1- or 1.2-meter) wheels that can handle the challenging terrain of Iceland all year. They are equipped with fold-down steps for easy accessibility, leather seats, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, GPS, first-aid kit, trackwell, and other security equipment.

Please note: the tour operator reserves the right to cancel this tour at any time, depending on the weather and sky conditions. If the tour does operate but the Northern Lights aren't seen, you may try once again at no extra charge. If all nights are canceled due to weather conditions, you'll receive a refund. It is recommended that you book your tour for the first night you're in town so you can maximize your chances of sightings, in case you need to go another night. Group sizes get bigger if several nights in a row are canceled due to weather.

Traveler Tips

We had such a good time with the Superjeep Tour group, that I wouldn't just recommend this specific tour, I would actually check out the other tours that they offer too.
All I would say is wrap up as warm as you can.

Northern Lights was amazing and our guide was very welcoming. We must be patient but the nature spectacle is worth it !

Great experience in a jeep; saw some great sights and landscapes that I won't soon forget! Also got some nice pictures to share with friends 😊
Great guides
Susan_M, Feb 2023
Even though we had great conditions the lights failed to show. However, the tour guides were AMAZING- shout out to Palli - he gave us great info along the way about Iceland. I really like the fact that they gave you a free second trip if you failed to see the lights the first night. This is a great group! Sign up with them.
Amazing didn’t disappoint
Jaime_C, Jan 2023
Amazing Tour! It was more expensive than going on a coach but the extra cost is worth it. Rather than sitting in one location waiting for the lights, you get taken to amazing places that you couldn’t get to by coach in snow and ice in search of them. The guides are very knowledgable, the hot chocolate with vodka at the end was a great touch and just what we needed to warm us up! The lights were amazing it didn’t disappoint!
No complaints. My driver...

No complaints. My driver did everything to make my experience memorable! I saw the Northern Lights. Not disappointed!
Emma_S, Jan 2023
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. More expensive than going on a coach but the extra cost is worth it. Rather than sitting in one location waiting for the lights, you actually get taken to amazing places to hunt for them. The guides are very knowledgable, the photo and hot chocolate with vodka at the end is a great plus!
Graham_R, Jan 2023
The super jeeps are expensive compared to other coach trips and can get you places that other vehicles can’t but if you are tall they are extremely uncomfortable to be in and very difficult to get in and out off if placed in the back . Would save the money and get a cheaper trip not worth the price .
See the Norther Lights with These Guys!
Matt_R, Dec 2022
This tour was great! We saw the Northern Lights from many different and impressive viewing locations. The tour guide was good, but did not talk a lot unless specific questions were asked. If you want to see the Northern Lights, go out with these guys, as unlike other operators they don't just go sit in a field - they hunt the lights and provide the best viewing scenery too! This tour is operated by, even though this listing markets it as a different company. This tour is not operated in a Land Rover vehicle.
Great trucks/jeeps and guides
Wayne_L, Dec 2022
We didn’t see them tonight but the tour guide was great and those super truck/jeeps are high, huge and comfortable. Hopefully next outing the northern lights will appear.
Sexy Guide

Ants was the consummate host and took us directly to the lights as if commanded by god. The hot cocoa and vodka was an especially lovely touch
Northern lights
Christina_D, Nov 2022
So happy we were able to see the northern lights in a night with low probability- it was spectacular! Our guide Otto was great!
Bucket list done
Lourdes_S, Nov 2022
This was and excellent tour, superjeep are the best, expensive but worth we had clouds in the sky that night but still with the cámara and ones your eyes adjust you could have a great view. I am happy with the tour.
No lights, but a fun adventure!
Nikki_S, Nov 2022
The two Toby’s were brilliant hosts. Whilst we didn’t see the lights with our naked eyes, we did manage to get a photo which was pretty cool! This Company allow you to redo the trip in these circumstances, and we will hopefully manage to get back and see them at some point. The tour guides were really proactive in trying to get our group to see the lights, even stopping a few times on the way home in case we could get a view! Loved the jeep, also. Better than a bus tour in my opinion. Thanks to all at Superjeep!
Great lights
Jaim_N, Oct 2022
Great tour, recommend. Bring your digital camera, it enhances the lights and the images. The hot chocolate with vodka at the end is a must!!!
Sandra_D, Sep 2022
Great night out seeing a mesmerizing light show. The superjeep is comfortable & the driver & photographer were really nice & had a positive attitude. They took great pictures of us and emailed us the link, which was included in the price. Plus the hot chocolate & optional vodka was greatly needed as it was frigid out there & you have to be patient. A splurge but worth every penny, highlight of our trip to Iceland. Dress super warm!
Great experience all round.
Peter_W, Sep 2022
We found the communication great before hand with confirmation on the day that the tour would go ahead. The pick up was on time and Ants our driver and guide was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately the weather was not as forecast so we ended up with heavy cloud and despite driving to several different areas, we did not get to see The Northern Lights. The offer to re book the next day or if you have left the country, when you return to Iceland was a great surprise and really appreciated. We would highly recommend this company, the tour and guides.
Hunt for the lights
Linda_T, Sep 2022
This is a good, yet expensive option for those who are not renting a car. The staff was friendly and educational. Only issue was people getting in and out of vehicle causing the light from the car ruining the viewing for those who stayed outside.
Great tour, got to see the lights!
Emily_C, Apr 2022
Enjoyed the tour and got to see the northern lights! Only downside was our driver was not super friendly and there was little communication on our way out to lookout spot so the ride was slightly uncomfortable and had no clue where we were going or how long it would take. Once we met up with the other jeeps, the guide and photographer was fantastic! You can take as many photos as you want and they set up around the lights to get your the best shot. Bundle up!!!! It gets VERY cold and you will want to be outside looking for the lights. The hot cocoa and vodka at the end was a nice touch! Great way to experience such an amazing natural phenomena!
Disappointing as the Northern lights weren’t visible on this evening.
Brence_S, Apr 2022
Our guides made a commendable effort to show us the Northern lights. Unfortunately our viewing was less than optimal. It just wasn’t the right time. Our guides tried but we saw the faintest glimmer of a little bit of green. Hardly a memorable show. Our guides tried.
