The original tour we signed up for was on Friday, Feb. 5. It was cancelled due to the weather. We were super bummed. But the company guarantees it - so we quickly rebooked for the Sat. night tour. And so very glad we did. On Sat. we were at the Blue Lagoon and it snowed most of the time we were there. We figured there was no way we'd be able to see the Northern Lights that night either, but we were so wrong! We hopped on the 7 p.m. tour bus and away we went. We were only at the viewing area for about a half hour when the lights began! It was breathtaking and amazing! What a great bucket list item to check off our list! So magical. Just can't describe it well enough...you have to see it! It was a short but amazing visit to Iceland! You must see the Northern Lights when you go!
Very good tour, punctual pick up, unfortunately only smidging of the lights, but were told we could go another night instead. Really pleased and enjoyable trip though.guide very informative.
This was amazing! This is what we came to Iceland for mainly, and it did not disappoint!! Our guide was great, really friendly and happy to answer any questions. They even help you get your camera on the correct settings to capture the lights. Amazing, can't recommend enough!
I have wanted to see the Northern Lights for such a long time and we finally got to see them on this trip. I have no idea where we went but it was freezing cold. Luckily the coach was available for us to get back on if we wanted to
We were lucky enough to see the northern lights! Such a surreal experience and unfortunately our iPhone could not pick up the lights for a photo. I am hoping that someone that went on the same night as we did... uploads a photo.
Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience and is a memory I will keep forever. Something I can tick off the bucket list. The tour was great our driver and guide were both so friendly and fed lots of information whilst on the bus.
Be sure to rug up.... because it can take a while for the lights to show and it was FREEZING! So worth doing though. I would highly recommend. The driver and guide will go out of their way to make sure you see them if the possibility is there.
A must to see the northern nights.
We were lucky to see the lights on our first trip at a farm which provided hot chocolate, and toilet facilities which were much appreciated on a cold winters night.
Great tour as you can keep going back until you can see it. We didn't see legal northern lights so we can go back anytime in the next two years. I would recommend taking a proper camera as we got some amazing photos even though we could only barely just see the lights. Highly recommended and need to plan another trip to Iceland to try again!
Awesome, watching the northern lights is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We were able to watch them on our second night. Out tour guy was very nice and he let us stayed in the bus and just call them when the lights showed up. I would recommend you hunting for the lights on your own if you have a car, but without one this tour is highly recommended.
Amazing trip from bus driver to tour guide and off course the lights made a great show for us! Would really recommend that you take a great camera for the pictures.
Definitely a trip to do.
Thanks again bus 18 x
WOW WOW WOW is all I can say, that is a thing wiped off my bucket list. We went out on the First night of our trip but didnt see the lights which we were gutted about. Our trip was organised by a fantastic company and because we didnt see the lights on the first nite you can exchange your tickets everyday for up to 2 yeat until you see them which was top class as we got to see them on the second night of our trip

A little confusing at first
Not real personable
Found Northern lights
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.
Although we were unfortunate not to view the Northern Light the Staff could not have did anymore to make this trip more successful and offered a return trip for another night
Guides worked hard to get us viewing of lights, multiple locations attempted.
Tour guide was great, restaurant we waited at had a great atmosphere. Missed the northern lights, but the stars were amazing.
Spectacular! The best lights of the season. The tour guides knew to wait it out, even though some in our group were getting restless.
The tour war excellent and we were very fortunate to see a marvellous display.
We were so fortunate to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights against the Milky Way in mid April. Awesome!
