Thursday night we took a northern lights trip with GTI. Our FANTASTIC guide Jacob picked us up promptly from our hotel in a small minibus, meaning that our maximum number for the tour was 18 :) far better personal experience than the large coaches filled with 50 tourists.
Once we got on the road Jacob explained the history,various explanations and myths surrounding the lights which was incredibly interesting. It was nice to have such a passionate guide leading us on our search.
We stopped outside Reykjavik and began our search. To my amazement within 10 minutes of looking up at the sky something started to move. We continued watching and soon enough they appeared. I would really recommend a good camera and steady tripod on this trip! Jacob will guide you through the ISO settings you need to use and we were so grateful we followed the advice. The camera was picking up fantastic images of the sky.
We were very happy we had seen the lights but when we moved on to the next area we were blown away with what Jacob described as the best lights seen all year :)
An incredible magical experience that I will never ever forget! I so pleased I went with my instinct, trusted the reviews and chose GTI. We even had Jacob sing us an Icelandic lullaby on the way home ;) More
