    Stop: 4 hours
    We can say with certainty that the Aurora Borealis is one of the most unique spectacles that life on Earth has to offer. The lights can be elusive, but you have the best chance possible of seeing the lights by joining a private tour with an expert guide who knows all the best locations. Your guide will make every effort to provide an unforgettable experience to you, and tell you the science, myths and legends of the Northern Lights. If the weather conditions are right, you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens, painting dramatic shapes, colors and patterns on the night sky. This private tour starts with a pick-up at your Reykjavik accommodation at 9 PM, and from there you leave the city and go on a hunt for the Northern Lights in the countryside away from the city lights. Your expert driver/guide knows where the best spots are, where you are most likely to be able to catch a glimpse of this natural wonder. The tour can last for up to 4 hours, and at the end of the tour you will be dropped off back at your accommodation.

We were told that the chances were low to catch the Northern Lights but as we had limited time, we went ahead with the tour anyway. Our driver/guide (Wally) went out of his way to help us find the Lights. He was diligent, resourceful and very knowledgeable about the possible locations of the Lights as well as well-versed in Lights folklore. He entertained us with stories all night long. If you get the chance to go with Wally on this tour, then it’s well-recommended! Though I’m sure the other guides are just as good!

Also, Didi and Agnes were very helpful at the front office in downtown Reykjavík.

Thank you chanhoe for writing your review. Glad to see that you didn´t cancel the tour that night as forecasts and predictions are simply that, predictions. The Northern Lights will hit our atmosphere after certain time of Solar flares and it is not exactly known when this happens. Your compliments for our guide Wally are very much appreciated and for Deedee and Agnes as well. Your recommendation is very much appreciated

Good - if your scheduled tour is cancelled due to inclement weather, they will offer to take you out on another day.

Bad - if you don't get to see the lights due to weather or lack of activity, don't expect a refund. They offer to give you a 2-year voucher to come back to see them, but not necessarily convenient if you don't plan on visiting in the next two years!

Thank you koshat86 for writing your review. The Northern Lights are not like any of our tours and when you sign up the conditions are that if the lights are not seen you can repeat the tour or until you see the Northern Lights. If you cannot use your complimentary tickets this time in Iceland, your tickets are valid for 2 years and I do hope that you will reconsider and visit us again. You will be received with good cheer.
