“Northern Lights and Hot Chocolate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I went with SuperJeep to see the northern lights on 1/31/12. It was my first night out and we had perfectly clear skies. The group in the jeep was small and the driver was very knowledgeable. We caravanned with about 8 other vehicles up to a remote viewing location away from the main roads. It took at least an hour waiting in the cold before the show began. The superjeep guys then got out a camera and took photos for everyone, which they later sent to you upon request. They also provided some hot chocolate. I can't imagine a much better experience to see the lights from Reykjavik.

“Super fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We to the super jeep to go see the Northern Lights. Even though we did not see any the super jeep tour in itself was quite impressive. Those cars are so powerful that it's a lot of fun. We were able to go quite high and far away from the city with those monsters which is something you can't do by bus. They literally rode the mountains like you would drive on a simple road.

We also had to wait 30mn at a gas station which was quite boring. We were waiting for other jeeps and drivers were drinking a coffee while discussing where to go to see the lights. What's cool is that they follow the activity on live so we went to a first spot, waited 20mn then rushed to another one where they thought we might have more chances. We also got a hot chocolate with Reyka to keep us warm which was nice.

Since we did not see the lights we are able to do it again until we see them (or until we leave...) free of charge which is really interesting.

“We saw the Northern Lights so did the job!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Very well organised and after postponing the first night due to heavy clouds, we went out on our second night and had an amazing experience watching the Northern Lights. Because you're in a an off road jeep these guys can take you further off the roads and to a more remote spot for viewing the lights. All the staff were really friendly and interested to see how our photos were coming out etc. the hot chocolate to warm you up is a nice touch.

If I was being picky, I'd say it wasn't the most peaceful or tranquil experience. There were quite a few jeeps that went out so it wasn't a small, personal tour by any means - there were a lot of people around watching the lights so you need to find a quiet spot to set up if you're taking photos, and be prepared people might keep wandering into your shot! We also sat in the jeep at a petrol station for half an hour at the start to wait for other jeeps to join us, which was a little bit annoying as it wasn't a cheap tour.

Saying all that, it delivered what we wanted and the staff are great. I doubt you'd get anywhere near as good an experience going out on one of the big coaches.

Dear Lineyt.
Thank you for your kind words here above, we are truly greatful for your review. I´m sorry if you had a delay off departure by the gas station where we meet up before take off.. the usual stop there is about 15 min to meet up before we head out.. There are 2 main reasons why we meet there.. 1st is that it offers a bathroom stop for our clients before we take off as we cannot guarantee those in the wilderness & the 2nd is that the location is excellent as it´s by the 2 highway exits out of Reykjavik. I just wanted to clarify this to you and others to see as what to expect during departure. Again Lineyt, thank you very much, both for your visit with us & your lovely review, have a great day.

“Northern lights superjeep trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

This was an excellent service, after reading reviews we decided to pay a little more to try and see the northern lights rather than using a large coach - and were glad we did.
We were taken off road to see Reykjavik lit up at night before heading to a good spot to see the lights. We were lucky enough to get a great display within about 20 minutes due to cold and clear conditions. The plan was to move on to another spot if we saw nothing. The team were good fun and chatted to everyone whilst taking photographs which they quickly uploaded on their facebook page for us to download. We were served vodka and hot chocolate to keep us warm too. Great night.
