Northern Lights Hunt atop of Tindfjallojokull Glacier
Jan 2019 • Family
Our whole reason for going toIceland was to see the Northern Lights. Our guide Magnus Thoroddsen was fantastic. He drove us up the glacier in difficult conditions and then lit a bonfire, made us some hot drinks and then located the lights for us!!! And if that wasn't enough, he even helped us take photographs using the cameras that we had recently purchased and were unfamiliar with!!! I cannot recommend them enough - would definitely use them again. Thank you Magnus, my mum is beyond happy.

North Lights in Iceland in January 2019
Jan 2019 • Friends
In spite of a time when the northern lights were difficult to see due to full moon, our gude from Southcoast Adventure would not give up. Off road through the snow and running rivers were all part of the adventure. And when we thought that the northern lights would not appear, there they were. Our guide took photos with his phone camera and share them with us later which was wonderful since my photos did not really turn out. Thank you Southcoast Adventure for our advanture.
