This was incredible! At first the lights were faint, but then they came out in force and were dancing across the sky! I was surprised at how close to Reykjavik we could still see the lights as we came back in to the harbor. The tour operators even stayed out a little later than usual because the auroral activity was so good even though the KP was only 1.67 and the moon was still bright. And the hot chocolate on the boat was delish! Highly, highly recommended.

We were very fortunate to see this incredible show of nature. An hour and half into the tour, we only saw weak form of northern lights. Two shooting stars crossed the sky, my daughter prayed to see the lights. It showed up almost immediately from 3, 4, 9 and 11 o'clock of the sky, slowly forming and bursting. It was absolutely spectacular and wonderful to see the wonder of the nature. The show continues even as the tour ends and the boat pulls in the harbor. The staff is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They were caring and handing out motion sickness pill The sea was very rough. For a big man like me, my advice is to take 2 pills. We had a wonderful time. The best place to see Northern Lights is in Iceland!!! A truly incredible experience.

we were lucky to see the northern lights on our first day! The weren't very vivid though, but still. The Guide was very nice and told a lot of useful information and stories about Aurora Borealis. It was freezing cold that night but still worth it.

The cruise was very nice with a beautiful boat and gracious staff. We were not able to see the lights but they offered to take us at any point in the future to hopefully see them!
