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.
We booked this trip for the first full day we were there as we knew we may not see them first time.Good job we did as it took 3 nights of looking at the sky in the cold before we saw them,but they were so worth it.Had no trouble re booking onto the next days trip,staff helpful and friendly.Take warm clothes,and a camera with a long exposure of around 15-30 seconds, and a tripod, otherwise you wont get any photos.We were told by the guide that Sept ,Oct and Feb were the best months to see them-Good luck!
I'm normally very sceptical about booking things on the internet but on this occasion I'm so glad I did. Everything about the trip was fantastic. The booking service, actually being collected from our hotel at the time agreed, the on board commentary and then the piece de la resistance actually being fortunate enough seeing the lights in the sky. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get dark enough but when it did WOW truly an amazing experience. Thanks Viator. Will def use again next time I travel.
Sunday february 13 we unfortunately did not saw the Northern lights. The tour operator gave us the opporunity to do the trip again free of charge. Monday February 14 we did the trip again and fortunately we did saw the Northern ligths for a few minutes! After that you couldn't see the Northern lights with your eyes, but on photocamera the Northern lights did appear!
