Unless you are really looking to buy a new wide angle lens, your 24-70 will be fine.  You have a good, hi ISO camera so you're set there.  You could get the Zeiss 18mm 2.8 if you wanted a bit wider view - just depends on what sort of landscapes you plan to photograph.

Even the 70-200 might give you some nice compositions if you have auroras down close to the horizon.

Mount them on the tripod (you do have a nice tripod, right?) and go for it.
