We had a very long night but a very enjoyable and worthwhile one. After our first stop it seemed we would not see the lights. We were then taken to some hot springs and that appeared to be that. But the tour guides kept trying and we finally saw the lights. The guides described them as not the best but at least we had seen them. On our way back we stopped again and this time saw the lights even better. Thanks to the perseverance of the tour guides.
The tour guides are really good, pointing out where to look, you need a good camera as an iPhone doesn't pick the lights up! The driver also stopped on the way back so we could see a great view on the lights!
We enjoyed our norther lights tour. We went on January 5, 2015 and were able to see the lights from about 10:00pm for roughly half and hour. The skies were partly cloudy and there was a full moon. As the night progressed, the skies cleared but we saw no more activity. The tour took us to two spots. We were thrilled to have seen the lights since the tours were cancelled the day before and after our trip due to poor weather conditions.
It was too cloudy. Could not see the lights. Was told tickets was good for two years if you don't see the lights you just have to rebook. your name is in the system. Nice ride out, could see the John Lennon light from Videy Island.
AMAZING TOUR. A must when in iceland. Went out first night unfortunately only seen Ñorthern lights faintly. Was told we could go again the following night free of charge. Glad we did had the most amazing display. Female tour guide arga ? Was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Loved this tour. Well don
Great tour guide Anna and we luckily got to see the Aurora borealis.
Excellent tour and professional guide!!!!! I should have joined one more day. :)
We were picked up from our hotel and the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She showed us the best place to see the lights and what a show it was too! We can't thank you enough for making our trip perfect. My fiance proposed on this trip and it was magical. Thank you!
tour was fine. We did get to see the northern lights. My only problem with all the tours is the tour guides. None of them had a good handle on the English language. In most of their sentences, there long pauses trying to find the words necessary. I believe a tour guide must be able to speak clearly , making the tour much more enjoyable.
Seeing the Northern Lights is not a given. I would suggest booking this tour for the first night and then keep trying on other nights if you don't see the lights. At 4pm each day, you'll find out if the tour is going that day. If the tour does go out and you don't see anything, you can go another night for free. If you don't see anything while you're there, the ticket is good for two years.
We went on a Wednesday night and the weather was overcast and we were not able to see the lights. They offered to let us go again on any other night we wanted until we saw the lights. So, we ventured out again on Thursday night to a different location by the lighthouse near the village of Gardur and we saw the lights dancing across the night sky. They were spectacular to see in person! The tour operaters were kind and informative and just as happy to see the northern lights as we were. A great experience!
