I was fortunate that the weather cooperated and was able to see the Northern Lights, but I also want to compliment the bus drivers and tour guides for doing all that was possible for us to see them. We moved to three different locations as they consulted forcasts for the visibility. They really wanted to do their best to allow us to see this spectacular sight
tour was cancelled 1st night due to cloud , but was honoured the following night , long trip ,guide had plenty of stories and info about the island and its history .the lights themselves were awesome a must do .
No lights first night. No problem as Icelandic Excursions will take you as often as needed til you get to see them at no extra cost and this is open for 2 years. Second night had to be cancelled due to cloud cover. Third night we saw them. What a fabulous sight. So worth the effort. Icelandic Excursions are a brilliant company too - couldn't rate them highly enough. Thanks guys!
really great trip!!
This was a 30th birthday treat for my fiancee. the trip was cancelled once due to bad visibility, when we were advised it was going ahead 5 other coaches pulled up in the middle of nowhere... Didn't bother us, the lights came out above us and it was spectacular. A****
This tour was absolutely worth it. We went in January 2013 and saw an AMAZING display of the Northern Lights. This is a must if you are going to Iceland in the winter.
Amazing coach trip, dissapointed in not seeing the Lights first night out, but with our free try again booking it all worked out and our minds were blown.. Thank you for helping to make our dream come true - wholiterary.eu
we drove around for 4 hours and stopped in 2 locations. Unfortunately, because the skies were not clear we didn't see the northern lights. They told us we could come back within a 2 year period until we actually see the lights....Good deal
I highly recommend this tour just to be able to experience seeing the northern lights. Just be flexible. With your evening schedule because the weather is unpredictable.
Because of the cloudy weather, Unfortunately we didn't see northern light in our trip, but the arrangement is good, I really enjoy our trip, I will join the tour someday soon.
We were very lucky to see the northern lights. It was -15c and clear during the day which meant we were hopefully in for a fantastic night. We were not disappointed. This is a must if you are in Iceland
We got to see the Northern Lights! Best part was that the night we booked they cancelled it. Luckily we booked for the first night of our trip and we were able to go on the second night. I would suggest that you book this tour early in your trip in case of weather so you have many chances to see it.
We were lucky on this tour...the lightts were lovely. The guide and the driver knew where to take us for thebest viewing chance. Our guide was very entertaining! Even if we had not seen lights, i would have had a great time. I was looking forward to the the most as the seeing the lights has been my dream since i was a child.
This was a wonderful tour. The night I took the tour, it was extremely cloudy in Reyjavik. We were out for several hours before we saw the Northern Lights. Although it was a magnificant display because of the clouds, the tour took us to see the Tectonic Plates and to hot springs in the middle of night. It was wonderfully creepy and adventurous. They also guarantee that if you do not see the lights on your tour, your ticket is still active and you will be able to go as many times as you can until you can spot them. A definite must do.
We did see the Norther Lights and that was amazing!!! I do recommend this trip! Well organized and on time.
This tour was the defining tour of my trip. It was a life goal to see the northern lights and they were able to provide me with a great spot and loads of information. They lights were amazing..check out the pic..can't wait to go back!!
We were lucky and saw the northern lights on our nights - the tour guide was very nice, she also told us about history and explain about the lights and also Icelandic customs, etc.. amazing!
Shame we didn't get to see the Northern Lights but Viator managed to take us to the only place where there would be a gap in the cloud cover that evening.
Great! We werent able to see the lights the first night so I was allowed to go a second night for free and we eventually saw the lights. Definitely take a camera that is capable of capturing low light images, regular cameras and cell phones won't capture the images
Actually got a good view while driving to a spot to look for them. Driver pulled over and we all piled out to stare. Guide was great. Friendly and very knowledgeable. Would recommend it to anyone - and have.
After one weather cancellation and one failed attempt to find the lights, the third time was the charm. I suggest you give a camera and tripod to the guide to take a photo that can sold to those without the proper camera to take a photo on their own. I could tell you how to set up your camera for the guides to use.
Awesome time. Pretty lucky as the northern lights was on display for an hour plus!
I had heard mixed reviews of this tour, but when you are counting on a natural phenomenon, you never know what you are going to get. Our guide gave lots of information about the lights on the way and right when we showed up to Thingvellir, the lights appeared! It was very cold, but we stayed as long as the lights were performing.
