It was great hunting the lights for 3 nights. Was hoping it was more spectacular but the cloud cover did not allow them to shine as they should have. I still recommend it.
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!
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.

Excellent tour, but it is all down to mother nature on this one, we were lucky and had an excellent show. the guide was very helpful
very professional and prompt for pickup. Guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Saw the lights and absolutely phenomenal! Go with this group!
Saw the lights, tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and informative, what more could you want from a trip to Iceland!!! Amazing best experience of our lives
OUTSTANDING! I suggest the 9PM trip as I wanted to leave at midnight but the bus driver kept saying Have Patience!! Freezing my Florida butt off but at 1:10 AM the most incredible light show I have or will have seen!
The colors... green, red, purple made the entire trip worth every penny. THANK YOU Mr. Bus Driver!!

We saw the lights! Our guides were very knowledgeable and knew where to go to see the lights. On our way back to the city the lights were so strong that we stopped in the middle of no where to get out and see them. Strongly recommended.
Very good, the young guide was the best we had on all our excursions, really helpful and enthusiastic, also pretty knowledgeable. This is obviously relying on nature to produce the goods but they did everything in their power to give us a good experience.
We saw the lights! One of my bucket list items and we were so fortunate to experience this breathtaking wonder. So convenient and easy with the tour bus picking you up at your hotel. Grayling is the company running the buses and they were always on time and very organized. There is a small cafe at the site where they took us so you can get inside for warmth and coffee. We were lucky as the lights started around 10:30pm. Words can not express the beauty of the lights. I'd definitely recommend taking this tour!!
We just got back from Iceland and were fortunate enough to take a Northern Lights tour during the last week they were available for the spring season. Unfortunately, on our first attempt, there was nothing to see but the tour company let people re-book a second night at no extra charge. So glad we had the opportunity - what a show the skies put on! Great experience, all around. We were bused to an area that had facilities, so you can get coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, and be able to use a bathroom. The tours will resume again in the fall. Don't miss a chance to get into a dark sky area to see them. Be sure to dress warmly. Spectacular - words can't adequately describe the thrill. Highly recommended!
The first day we didn't have the opportunity to see the lights completely. But we have the chance to take the tour for free once again and in the second time the lights were dancing all over the sky! Absolutely worth it!! Impressive!
Brilliant we saw the lights and would recommend this excursion

An amazing experience! First attempt fail didn't see the light. Free to rebook next trip. Luckily second trip we see the northern lights! Great tour!
This was fantastic. It took a few nights to get out and see them but I was not disappointed. I suggest however you ring the local tour people and rebook if the tour does not go out on the night you booked. Great tour great river and guide. Would do again. Dress warm!!
