I gave this tour five stars even though we didn't get to see the northern lights, it was a really well planned and friendly tour, with a very small group too. It's a real shame we didn't have more time in Iceland, but the weather overall was really bad the four days we were there. We'll go back for sure!
Even though we only saw a glimmer of the aurora, I still loved the tour overall. The guides were great and were really dedicated in their attempt to get us to those lights. I am sure that I will come back to Iceland someday, and I would not hesitate to go out again with this crew!
We were initially a little disappointed to end up as part of a larger group than we expected because the tours had been delayed by weather the previous nights, but it worked out very well and we were pleased that others who didn't see lights on their first chance were able to do so this time. The information is very clear that this may happen and we knew what the weather had been like, so we weren't too surprised by the larger but very manageable group size.
We ended up in the mountains with a very nice display of northern lights and fairly clear skies. The next day we talked to some other people and learned that they had taken a large motor coach for a northern lights tour and been unable to find clear skies, let alone seeing any displays of aurora. Those buses couldn't get into the areas where our tour went. Overall, we were very pleased and the guides did a great job.
The super jeep tour is the way to go. It's a smaller group of people and they are able to take you off-roading so you get the best view. the night I went, the level of light was on lower end of the scale, but we were still able to see it. The one guide took photos of us in front of the lights and taught us how to set our cameras so we could take our own pictures. It was such a cool experience.
Superb! The best way to see the northern lights!!!
Great night out! We saw the light very quickly within 30 mins or so from departure. They also took photos for us on their camera which is a big bonus. Definitely go for a super jeep tour as they can get you to more secluded places that normal vehicle just won't be able to go on.
We had a great guide, Gisly, who made the trip very interesting and fun. Did not see the lights that night, but went the next night at no charge and saw them. Guide on night 2 was Clemmie, also very nice and knowledgeable. Arctic Adventures was the local company in Iceland and we would highly recommend them!
This is really a ten star tour. Picked up promptly and really easy. The giant jeeps were awesome with about 15 people tops on it we did a caravan of three jeeps. We were incredibly fortunate as the northern lights forecast was updated at 9 pm and we were expecting a 7 out of 8 on the scale. We went off road into a field and it was mesmerizing! The guides were awesome. Obvious that they love what they do. Took its of pictures of us all as the camera sees them much better than the human eye. Stars everywhere. They had snacks of hot chocolate, cookies, and an Icelandic alcohol. Wonderful. We stayed several hours. We were so glad we went our first night as,we met several people that went the next night and saw nothing. Very. Very cold and windy when we were there so dress on lots of layers. I wore full ski gear including ski pants. This made it quite comfortable
