We were one of the lucky people we have managed to see the northern lights also changing colour! Amazing! Once life time experience you must do!
U need to have patience a lot of warm clothes.
During our week in Iceland, there were only 3 clear days so our original trip was cancelled and rescheduled two days later. Since the week wasn't particularly great weather-wise, Gray Line received over 250 orders in the last hour of when we went so it was pretty chaotic. BUT I have to say the tour guides were incredibly nice, organized, and very optimistic about seeing the lights.
Even though it was still not the clearest days, we were able to see 3 northern lights an hour into our tour. It was beyond magical and a beautiful experience. Due to the large size of passengers, everyone was cheering when the lights were dancing and it was such a memorable time.
The tour guide was the BEST guide I've ever had. Incredibly optimistic, friendly, and funny. He checked in on everybody to make sure we were satisfied with the tour. Very personably, highly recommend.
After being cancelled for weather the first night we decided to go the next night and I'm glad we did. While not one of the most powerful display of lights it was definitely worth the trip and something I'll remember for the rest of my life. The bus pick up and drop off went without a hitch and our guide was great and kept us informed of everything while on our over a hour ride to the spotting site. Great service highly recommend.
You wait to see it, you get frustrated thinking the tour was a waste, but then BAM! The northern lights, what a sight. You are in a huuuuge group bus, and meet up with other huuuuge group buses, but if you can stand being in big packs then this is a great budget way to see the lights. Most of the reviews that are one star are because they don't see the lights. That's the risk you take with mother nature.
Forgot to mention the Blue Lagoon afterwards. Well worth a dip. Being in hot water neck down whilst its snowing /sleeting is surreal
Loved to see the northern lights. We were quite lucky as they normally appear only green. We had the chance to see them purple, pink and green. Our guide was very good giving us a lot of facts for the island. After we saw them to the original location they took us, they drove us to another area to continue our northern lights experience. AMAZING
We feel so privileged to have seen the lights, it was defiantly a once in a lifetime experience, though just standing and staring up at the star studded sky was an amazing experience in itself. We are so happy we went on this tour and Darren was a fantastic guide.
