Cheap and effective way to hunt for northern lights. We managed to catch them just as we were heading back to Reykjavik.

We did this trip on our first night and we did see the northern lights. Our tour guide as excellent and kept us out until we got to see the lights. It was a long trip but well worth it.

Be prepared for a long bus journey but if you are lucky enough to see the lights it is worth every minute!

This tour was great because the guides were REALLY focused on getting us to see the lights. We were out till 2am which was really long and tiring after a while but I know they just wanted everyone to experience the lights as much as they could.

Great tour. Apa? our guide and Torie our driver were excellent. We went out on a cold wet cloudy night with not much hope of seeing the lights but Apa was upbeat saying we will find a break in the clouds. Two buses went out together and we drove and stopped a number of times looking for the lights. The lights were visible behind the clouds if you had a DSLR camera on a tripod, you could see the green. At 11.00pm the other bus decided there would be no lights and left for Reykjavik but Apa felt we should wait a little longer. Eventually we had to head back but went a different route. 5 mins later she saw a ribbon appearing, the driver found a spot to stop and we saw the most fantastic display, it went on for at least 30 mins. Apa said it was the best she had seen in a long time and Torie rated it a 9.5 out of 10. We would not have seen the lights without the perseverance of Apa and Torie and would like to thank them for an outstanding night. Others I spoke to later in the week had been out on the same night, one on the boat, and had not seen anything. It was very cold so rug up warm.

Spectacular! The best lights of the season. The tour guides knew to wait it out, even though some in our group were getting restless.
