My father and I visited Iceland at the end of September as a father-son bonding trip and for my dad to visit his roots (his grandfather was from Iceland). In any case, I really wanted to see the Northern Lights. We booked a tour with Thor and it was a really solid experience. Thor and my dad talked the whole time (because my dad loves to talk) about Iceland and all kinds of other stuff, and he was very personable. We started with the lagoon, which was great, and then had dinner at the nearby restaurant. Then it was time for the Northern lights. At first, the lights were pretty whispy at about 9pm local, but by 10, they started to be way more dramatic, and we could see them dancing and shimmering in the air, and we had one particular spectacular spot (Thor drives you around to different spots as the aurora moves) where it was just great. It was purple and green and dancing all over. I was frozen, so I huddled in the car for a chunk of the time. So solid recommend from me, but also, seriously, bring something that's good against windchill. I thought I was fine because it wasn't a problem in Reykjavik but it is MUCH windier and colder outside of the city.

Thor was a great guide. He was on time and professional. He had planned out the tour - knew where we had the highest chance of seeing the northern lights and took us there. He helped me set up my camera on a tripod - which was not easy to do in the dark. Because of his help I was able to take great pictures of the northern lights - a dream of mine. He is very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him.

We booked the private northern lights tour with lobster feast with Thor for our trip to Iceland in February. Thor arrived on time, was very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure we had a night to remember! The lobster feast really was a feast (delicious) and Thor made sure we were at a prime spot for the Northern Lights (we got engaged beneath them!) My partner had planned this prior to the trip and Thor made him feel completely at ease, even keeping hold of the ring during dinner and bringing some champagne along with him (requested and paid for by my partner in advance). We were incredibly lucky and the lights were very clear, Thors photography captured the moment and we have priceless photos/memories which will last a lifetime. THANK YOU for such an incredible experience and we would highly recommend for anyone looking at booking for that special occasion!

We joined Thor for a private tour with dinner included. Thor was very accommodating, enthusiastic and knowledgeable- it was a real treat to be out and about with a local who grew up in the area that we visited for dinner. The lobster feast was delicious and filling, there was so much food!! We drove around a bit “hunting” for the lights but only caught a couple of small glimpses of some low activity - still Thor captured some good photos of it which turned out great - much better than we could see with the naked eye! We very much enjoyed Thor’s company and nice little touches like the hot chocolate (with some Icelandic spirit) and Thor’s favourite chocolate bars!! Thanks for a great trip - highly recommended.
