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!
It took two attempts, But well worth every minute. Try to book the excursion on your first full day in Iceland.
We had the chance to see northern lights (beginning of October) !! :) :)
It was great. At the beginning, we had to wait 2 hours before some lights appear. We took some hot chocolate to warm up !
This is something that I have wanted to do for years now and I can finally say that I got to see the northern lights. It is and awe inspiring moment when you get to see them. Our guide and the whole trip was great
Went on this twice as the first time it was cloudy, they did show for a very brief time, the second time and our last night there was a beautiful clear evening but they did not appear. good thing about this tour is that you can go as many times as you want in two years until you see them without having to pay each time.
We waited for four days till the tour went...and we cherish it forever...so lucky to have done and seen the Northern lights!!!!
the best thing I did on a 6 week Europe holiday. tour group was huge over 800, but were transported to a very remote area and move people staying in the buses. fantastic views of the lights, great photographic advise given by our bus leader. Despite the massive numbers on the tour, everything went on time and smoothly. couldn't praise the team more. will definatelly do this tour again.
True to its word, we were EASILY on for a second opportunity when the trip was determined to fall short of satisfaction for the client. We had good drivers on both occasions, enthusiastic, informative and patient guides on both outings and the Northern Lights did not disappoint. The only problem was that I was not sufficiently prepared on photo taking, so I was disappointed more with myself than with anything that was offered by viator. Thank you for great service and a wonderful experience. The Northern Lights show was spectacular!
Take very warm, waterproof clothing and be prepared to hang around in the cold, but truly unbelievable and worth every penny when you see the lights. Take a tripod for the pictures... amazing
Excellent experience! We were lucky enough to see the Lights very early on and got a second, even better showing at the parliament field. Obviously, not guaranteed to get a showing but you can't go to Iceland and not do this trip
We got to see a great display of the Northern Lights.....what more can I say ?.
Coach took you to the National Park were it was in complete darkness and waited for the Northern Lights to appear. We were lucky to see the Lights dancing through the sky. On the way home coach took a further stop as the lights continued to dance through the sky.
What a great experience it was! We were lucky to see the Northern Lights. They were absolutely breath taking, not only green but also pink! The company that organized the trip is very professional. Both guide and driver were lovely. They really wanted to show us the best of the lights.
