6 hours on a bus to see what looked like a candle flickering behind a cloud - what a waste of time. Of course the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and no tour can or will even attempt to guarantee a sighting. And perhaps part of the amazement at seeing the Lights is due to their not being available for viewing every night. But I think I would have had to see something pretty fantastic to make up for driving around Iceland in the dark for hours on end listening to rubbish. The bus tour was disorganised, took ages to load us on buses initially and brought us back to town an hour later than we were supposed to return. Getting to bed at half one is not good when you have an early tour to get up for in the morning. Now maybe they kept us out late to increase our chances of seeing the lights. But if so, advertise that in advance so purchasers of the tour will know to expect it and can plan around it. Also the commentary was rambling, repetitive and uninformative. I was thinking this would be one of the highlights of my trip to Iceland. Instead it was the dullest.
