We saw the lights! Our guides were very knowledgeable and knew where to go to see the lights. On our way back to the city the lights were so strong that we stopped in the middle of no where to get out and see them. Strongly recommended.
Very good, the young guide was the best we had on all our excursions, really helpful and enthusiastic, also pretty knowledgeable. This is obviously relying on nature to produce the goods but they did everything in their power to give us a good experience.
We saw the lights! One of my bucket list items and we were so fortunate to experience this breathtaking wonder. So convenient and easy with the tour bus picking you up at your hotel. Grayling is the company running the buses and they were always on time and very organized. There is a small cafe at the site where they took us so you can get inside for warmth and coffee. We were lucky as the lights started around 10:30pm. Words can not express the beauty of the lights. I'd definitely recommend taking this tour!!
We just got back from Iceland and were fortunate enough to take a Northern Lights tour during the last week they were available for the spring season. Unfortunately, on our first attempt, there was nothing to see but the tour company let people re-book a second night at no extra charge. So glad we had the opportunity - what a show the skies put on! Great experience, all around. We were bused to an area that had facilities, so you can get coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, and be able to use a bathroom. The tours will resume again in the fall. Don't miss a chance to get into a dark sky area to see them. Be sure to dress warmly. Spectacular - words can't adequately describe the thrill. Highly recommended!
The first day we didn't have the opportunity to see the lights completely. But we have the chance to take the tour for free once again and in the second time the lights were dancing all over the sky! Absolutely worth it!! Impressive!
Brilliant we saw the lights and would recommend this excursion

An amazing experience! First attempt fail didn't see the light. Free to rebook next trip. Luckily second trip we see the northern lights! Great tour!
This was fantastic. It took a few nights to get out and see them but I was not disappointed. I suggest however you ring the local tour people and rebook if the tour does not go out on the night you booked. Great tour great river and guide. Would do again. Dress warm!!
Loved this tour! We drove for some time to a remote location. The weather temps were absolutely frigid, but we really didnt mind. We were able to keep going inside the store to warm up.
It was later in the season but w e were able to see the Northern Lights, several times, however they were faint. But we saw them nonetheless.
Our tour guide, Roman, was fantastic. And gave us a wealth of knowledge about the Northern Lights and about Iceland along with some personal history.
This really is a must see if you've never experienced northern lights before
Sighting of the lights are based on various factors controlled by nature. Long night and very cold. Advice is to really wrap up warm by layering up and wearing proper footwear and wool/merino wool socks to keep your feet warm. Nothing worse than having to cope with freezing feet. Guide explains about the Northern Light and you will get busloads of tourists all chasing the lights. At last tour, there were at least 14 buses ranging from 3 different hours tours. 7,8,9 pm schedules.
Unless you planned to self drive, you have no choice but to join a tour. If you want exclusivity and small group and freedom of chasing the lights elsewhere, it will cost at least thrice the price of this tour.
Despite the fact that our spotting of the Northern lights was sparse the guide did her best to accommodate. She was helpful helping us set up our cameras to take the best pictures.
Gave you some history, saw the lights what more could you ask from. Just a few too many people for me which is why we took ourselves out the next night and were treated with the natural beauty again! :

Having the luck to see the northern lights dance in the night sky, was an unbelievable experience that will always be with me. The tour guide did everything possible to make the tour enjoyable and also provided us with some great back stories into the folk legends behind the aurora borealis. All in all, a tour well worth taking.
The Northern Lights being a natural phenomena, you don't know whether you see them. First attempt the tour was cancelled due to bad weather conditions, but after rescheduling, which was easy and without any problems, we finally saw them. Our guide Bartos was awesome, explaining every detail about the lights on our way and also how to get them on camera. About 4h after departure we were back in our hotel another incredible experience richer.
It was the most amazing experience!! It was cloudy when we left Reykavik. We couldn and #39;t see anything at the initial site, hence, we were brought to another site. There we saw a spectacular display of the lights dancing. It lasted approximately 15-20mins. However, be prepared to embrace the cold.
Our first tour to see the Northern Lights was cancelled due to an impending snow storm. This wasn't an issue though as it was re-booked with ease for the following evening. We were given some information on the lights by our guide who was really knowledgeable. Be sure to wrap up warm and take care to keep your hands covered if it's windy - the icy wind really can burn! We were lucky enough to catch a very small glimpse of the lights but our guide did say that we could book again at no extra cost to see if we could catch them on a following night as the activity wasn't great. Be prepared for lots of standing around and a late finish! As long as you're prepared for this, you'll have a great time!!
Our tour guide, Darren, was very helpful. Saw the lights shortly after arriving to the location.
We were lucky to just about catch a glimpse of the lights. This was largely due to the expertise of the local guides 'chasing' reported sightings. They were very persistent and we were out until 2am on the search. Well worth it though just to say we have seen them! Good value.
