The trip was cancelled by the operator for mechanical reasons. They advised us that we must request a refund from TripAdvisor who booked the tour. I have so far been unable to contact TripAdvisor through email whilst in Reykjavik.I will be pursuing a refund on my return to England. Please otherwise. Tony and Lesley Donlan

Thank you so much to Omar! He advised us we may night see the lights until 1am...low and behold by 9.30pm he pull to the side of the road and we saw them!!!! Coming all the way from Australia I had my fingers crossed the whole trip! We moved onto another section and watched them again. We had chocolate and blankets under the Northern Lights! We were very lucky we got 3-4 showings the night we went out and the photos are fantastic! Thank you so much - it was just what I had wish for!

If you want a decent chance of seeing the amazing northern lights then go with this company! We were recommended to book this tour with Thule Travel by the hotel who said they were the best people to go with, they genuinely want you to see the lights, and also they cancel the tour if there’s less then 30% chance of seeing them. Omar the guide was brilliant. He was obviously very knowledgeable about finding the best spot and he was also hilarious. Had us all laughing on the drive out. He told us that he is constantly checking the forecast and he had chosen an isolated spot out near Keflavík for our trip. When we got there it was unbelievably cold with icy wind blowing, and he told us we could stay in the warm minibus if we wanted, whilst he looked for the lights. Of course, we all rushed off the minibus, scared we might miss something! After about 20 minutes another minibus from the same tour arrived and we were all served very welcome hot chocolate and cinnamon buns. After that though, we all started making our way back to the minibus as we were so cold. I was with my 11 year old daughter and she was freezing! So by 11.45pm nearly everyone was sitting in the minibus feeling a bit deflated. Suddenly Omar came rushing over, beckoning us out. The excitement! We had northern lights! Only for 10 minutes and not super bright but they were there! Omar had a camera set up on a tripod and took photos of us all, in our own small groups, couples etc. What was very pleasing to hear was that he was going to email the photos to us and they were free! I’m sure we’d have all happily paid money for them but no, they were his gift to us. I’m so happy we chose this company out of all the many choices. Even more so the next day when we were on a sightseeing tour, and chatting to two other couples, they told us that they had both been on other tours the night before (two other companies) and they hadn’t seen the lights. Their tours had gone to other places, one in the opposite direction to us. So what more can I say? It was a once in a lifetime chance and I’m very grateful to the fantastic Omar for his knowledge (and humour!) If you are trying to decide which tour to book then I think it’s fairly obvious: book with this company! Here is one of the photos Omar took of us. Thanks Omar!

We had an amazing time with Omar on our recent trip to Iceland. He successfully knew where to take us and we ended up seeing the lights four times!! He even took pictures of every member of our tour and sent us a download link via email quickly the next day. I would recommend him to anyone looking to see Iceland's natural beauty... he was very informative about the area and the history of Iceland, and he has a great sense of humor. Can't thank him enough!!
