No luck for us but still HIGHLY recommend!

Siggi is an amazing guide! Whether or not you get to see the lights is very weather dependant and if there’s no chance you’ll see them, the tour is cancelled. But if there is a chance, you’ll go out. We experienced both of these scenarios. Went out our first night but could barley see them due to cloud cover, so we were re-booked free of charge for the next night which ended up being cancelled due to weather. We were then re-booked free of charge for a 3rd night but were still unable to see them. Again, this is all weather dependent and the guides really do chase the open skies and solar activity all over to give you the best shot at seeing them. You just need a bit of luck which we didn’t have but when it was apparent on our last try that we couldn’t see them, they took us to a view of the active volcano instead and told us if we ever return to Iceland we can re-book with them for free!

The extra mile..

Original date was cancelled due to poor weather, rebooked for the following day. Ziggi tried his hardest to take us to the best spots, but weather just didn't allow for a major sighting. He did take us to a nice location at the end of the night to see the volcano erupting from a distance. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and a great guide!

Very disappointing

We were originally booked to go on Friday 3rd September but it was cancelled due to poor weather conditions and a high chance of not being able to see the lights. We rescheduled the following day and it was once again cancelled. On Sunday it seemed that the weather would be in our favour and so the tour was scheduled to go ahead… Whilst we were on route the driver told us that there was a 3/9 chance of us seeing the lights and that they personally preferred to see them through the clouds. We were also informed that every other tour operator had cancelled their tour due to poor visibility. I felt like the driver was setting us up for disappointment and at that point we knew we were not going to see the lights and were surprised that this particular tour had gone ahead. What commenced was a five hour journey of us being driven to and from various locations and waiting in the car whilst the tour operators ‘speculated’ to see if lights could be seen. (We all knew there was no chance) and most of us were eager to get back home. At the end of the 5 hour journey. The tour guide apologised for the uneventful night and said we could reschedule but not get a refund. We were leaving Iceland the next morning and so were very disappointed and disheartened. We felt that the tour only went ahead so they could make money out of us and not give a refund because it was very obvious we were not going to see the lights, especially as every other operator had cancelled. I feel that every passenger deserved a refund if they weren’t able to reschedule. But sadly this wasn’t given. I don’t recommend.

Amazing tour! It was clear our guide wouldn’t have gone out on the tour if he wasn’t sure there was a chance to see the lights. He was so knowledgeable about them and gave us lots of information. We saw the lights and it was incredible! The hot chocolate after was an extra treat. Our guide also was happy to take lots of photos with his camera and share them with us.

Great Northern Lights adventure. we were originally scheduled for the following night - got an email from operator asking if we could switch because the next few days' trips were expected to be cancelled for weather, so they were able to accommodate us coming that night. Driver knew everything there is to know about the northern lights and was very helpful getting pictures
