The super jeep tours are usually combination tours, i.e. a combination of Northern Lights hunt and some other activity. Some tours are day tours, others are afternoon or evening tours. You can also always have a customized tour that suits your needs.

Bus Tours

Northern lights bus tours are the cheapest ones but also the most crowded ones. Many companies offer a free tour if the lights don´t show up on your first tour, but you need to check the company you book with whether they have such service.

Boat Tours

You can also opt to hunt for the lights by jumping on a boat and have the city lights and mountains as a background. The boats have a lower deck where you can have a seat and get warm if you think it is too cold out on the upper deck. If you plan on taking professional pictures it is better to have a steady ground but it is a unique experience to hunt for the lights out on the open sea.

Self-Drive Tours

Yet another option is to rent a car and hunt for the lights on your own. It is important to keep a good track on the northern lights forecast and also on the weather forecast as the weather in Iceland is unpredictable. Also keep in mind that in winter the roads are slippery so it is important that you are used to driving in winter conditions (icy roads, snow, even blizzards).
