Your adventure will begin in Reykjavík where your private guide will pick you up at your hotel or at a nearby pick-up point. You will get on board a modified Superjeepequipped with free Wi-Fi. You will quickly leave the lights of the city behind to head out into the darkness of the vast Icelandic countryside in search of the magical Northern Lights.

As you will quest for the Aurora for hours, there can be many places that you could possibly see by night. You may visit the Golden Circle area, somewhere in South Iceland, the lava fields and volcanoes of the Reykjanes Peninsula, or even the western part of Iceland. Where you go depends entirely on the forecast and the weather.

To maximize your enjoyment, you will be able to go to locations that are off the beaten path which the tour buses and minivans cannot reach.

Your guide will tell you every fact about the science behind the Northern Lights as well as captivating stories and mythical folklore about Iceland and the Aurora Borealis. You will also be welcome to ask any questions you may have about this natural phenomenon.

During the cold night, a cup of hot chocolate will keep you warm.

Your guide will take a photo of you under the Northern Lights and that they will share it with you online the next day so that you can keep the memory alive. We will send you an email with a link to the photos so that you can download them.

After a few hours of Northern Lights hunting, your guide will drive you back to Reykjavik where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
