I joined 11/12 night bus No. 7 tour. The tour guide was reliable and helpful. Even though this was just a northern night tour, he still introduced something about the Iceland. The weather remained poor during the trip and we changed 2 locations catch northern nights, luckily I could catch northern lights at the end of the trip.

Die Northern Lights Tour selbst war super organisiert. Wir wurden pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt und nach der Tour auch wieder zum Hotel gebracht. Leider waren an diesem Abend keine Nordlichter zu sehen, da der Himmel bewölkt war und leider auch bewölkt blieb. Wir wurden auf einen dunklen (ziemlich vereisten) Parkplatz auf der Halbinsel Reykjanes gebracht. Für den Abend war dies der einzige Ort, wo klarer Himmel vorhergesagt war. Das war wohl auch der Grund, dass sich dort immer mehr Busse verschiedener Busunternehmen einfanden und massenhaft Leute "ausspuckten", irgendwie eine absurde Situation. Die Reiseleitung sagte bestimmt 10x: The problem is ... the clouds are very high. The only thing we can do is wait ...". Irgendwann hat das Warten aber genervt und es war schade, dass man anscheinend die drei Stunden, die diese Tour mindestens dauert, voll abwarten muss, auch wenn eigentlich klar ist, dass es mit den Nordlichtern an dem Abend wohl nicht klappen wird.Sehr positiv finde ich, dass man die Tour innerhalb von zwei Jahren kostenlos wiederholen kann, wenn es mit der Sichtung der Nordlichter nicht geklappt hat.

Lots of information given. Guides kept us well informed. Very fortunate to see the lights on first night out.

Tour Itinerary

This Northern Lights Tour takes you out of Reykjavik the city lights in hope of seeing the Northern Lights.

Aurora Borealis, another name for the Northern Lights, are a natural phenomenon and therefore sighting is not guaranteed. We will drive you to the countryside, into complete darkness, in hope of seeing the skies glow.

What will I do?
When Northern Lights have been spotted, you will be able to go outside and see the fantastic shapes and colours in the dark sky. You will have plenty of time to take photos and truly enjoy the moment.

Why should I go?
Iceland is an ideal place to see the Northern Lights due to our location on the planet. We have operated Northern Lights tours for more than 10 years. Our staff is therefore very experienced and aware of the necessary factors that increase your chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

So if you have the opportunity to see and enjoy something so spectacular, well - we suggest you take it!
