Oh wow, I'm speechless! I don't like organised tours but I'm so glad I went for this one! I always wanted to see northern lights but I knew that staying in city, I might not get the best view of it.
Tour guides Arinbjorn and Joana (I think that was her name) were great, funny and I learnt a bit about northern lights from them. It was like listening to a story, when they were explaining it to us.
What I really loved about this tour was that they made it fun, they made us to be a part of an Aurora hunt. At beginning they told us some options where it should be visible and we could chose where we wanted to go. As we were driving, they called their friends in those locations to check what can be seen and then we could choose. WOW! Ehmm somehow they managed to make us all work as a team. Mind you, I am shy person an we didn't know each other! But I made new friends there.
At first I was bit disappointed when I've seen northern lights. I was expecting the stuff from photos. They told us these are not that strong if we would like to hunt bit more. And off we went. What we found next was spectacular view of dancing green light visible with a bare eye. BONUS watching this with cup of hot chocolate with a biscuit on a freezing cold night! Truly PRICELESS!
Tour guides were were friendly, happy to answer any questions anyone asked them. Another bonus was the short story and Icelandic lullaby they sang to us on the way back. And after that they just let us quietly enjoy the ride back. Like they were reading our minds.
But wait this wasn't all. When they were dropping people off, at least 5 of them said 'See you tomorrow night for another aurora hunt!' And I totally understand why! If I wasn't leaving next day I would book another trip and go again as well.
Thank you so much Arinbjorn and Johana for an amazing tour time! I like their website Trips.is and their trips.
