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!!
Loved this tour! We drove for some time to a remote location. The weather temps were absolutely frigid, but we really didnt mind. We were able to keep going inside the store to warm up.
It was later in the season but w e were able to see the Northern Lights, several times, however they were faint. But we saw them nonetheless.
Our tour guide, Roman, was fantastic. And gave us a wealth of knowledge about the Northern Lights and about Iceland along with some personal history.
This really is a must see if you've never experienced northern lights before
Sighting of the lights are based on various factors controlled by nature. Long night and very cold. Advice is to really wrap up warm by layering up and wearing proper footwear and wool/merino wool socks to keep your feet warm. Nothing worse than having to cope with freezing feet. Guide explains about the Northern Light and you will get busloads of tourists all chasing the lights. At last tour, there were at least 14 buses ranging from 3 different hours tours. 7,8,9 pm schedules.
Unless you planned to self drive, you have no choice but to join a tour. If you want exclusivity and small group and freedom of chasing the lights elsewhere, it will cost at least thrice the price of this tour.
Despite the fact that our spotting of the Northern lights was sparse the guide did her best to accommodate. She was helpful helping us set up our cameras to take the best pictures.
