Bearhall. Yes, night we were on hunt, didn´t been excellent. Reason why not to or around national park is very simple. Area of place we stayed for lights is remote, there was more clear and clouds came over national park before then to our area. Next day was much better visibility based on clear sky and stronger lights. It simply is how it hits from night to night. Thank you for your review. I appreciate it very much.

We had a wonderful experience car with Andres. He was very thoughtful and knowledgeable and took us to a spot where we would have the greatest chance of seeing lights - and we did. Highlight of our trip! Highly recommend.

Dear N97 Your booking for northern light was just on correct one day, so on that we we can get lights not that far away from capital. I am really happy made up for you that kind of tour which is all time until departure unpredictable. You are all unforgettable, managing just great each with other, and I believe rest of your touring in Iceland will be over expectation Thank you for your review Andres

Well, we tried, the solar rating was only 2, our guide tried. Very hard, we did see some faint northern lights, it was the best we could hope for the night!

Really unorganised. We were told pickup was at 21:00 and driver turns up at 20:15. This tour was purchased as a Private Oriented Tour - when in fact there was a large group of us. The bus was too small with condensation covering the windows so you could not see out of them. We spent probably over an hour picking up the remaining parties of the tour. Once we finally got on our way to see the lights, we stop at the side of a road. The tour is sold as Learn about the sacred history and mythology of the atmospheric phenomenon, and hunt down the display where it's easiest to see. Let conditions guide you as you leave the city for Arborg, the valley of Haukdal or the stony landscape of Thingvellir National Park. - We never did any of these things. I would not recommend this tour.
