Amazing experience

This tour and tour operator are highly recommended!! Ronnie was our guide and was an expert!! At the first stop we didn’t see anything BUT Ronnie explained the northern lights so well and knew where to go so on the second, third and four stop we saw the magical northern lights! What an amazing experience!! This was a smaller group so that was really nice. They have us cup of hot cocoa at the end! Wrap up warm and enjoy! Would definitely recommend.

Flexible company, great guide, stunning lights

This is a great excursion. Seeing the ‘green diva’ is never 100% guaranteed (as explained by our tour guide at the beginning of the tour), but this is the best way to maximise your chances. And after a few re-schedules at the beginning of the week, it really didn’t disappoint. The tour guide was informative, humorous and of course, the lights were stunning. Just make sure that you layer up - I have never been as cold in my life!

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our tour and experienced the "Green Diva" Layer up is must due to the cold and freezing Icelandic winter nights. Hopefully the warm chocolate warmed little bit up. Kind regards Iceland Everywhere

The effort to find clear skies coupled with Ronni’s knowledge made the trip worthwhile. Was a little too long hence the four stars.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you found our tour too long. Our tour is around 3-5 hours, depends on how far we need to get out of the city to find the perfect spot for viewing the Northern Lights if they decide to honor us with their presence. Kind regards Iceland Everywhere

Fantastic tour

The weather on the day of our tour was pretty bad - it was snowing heavily and there was a lot of cloud cover, so we weren't too hopeful. Our guide was in good spirits though and had done a lot of research about areas where the cloud cover would break and where the lights would be best (we still had our doubts and thought that they were just trying to give us some hope). We were proven completely wrong and we drove straight to an area where there were no clouds and we got an incredible view of the northern lights. I think if we'd gone for a cheaper tour or with a bigger company with a fixed route for the tour we wouldn't have had anywhere near as-good an experience of the lights. We also didn't go straight back after seeing a brilliant light show, we went on to some more areas and got amazing value for money in terms of time and the quality of the information & education we got. The guide was more than happy to take lots of photos of us/for us and we had plenty of time to get our own photos too. 100% would highly highly recommend this tour - I wouldn't even consider going with a different company if I came back to Reykjavik.

What.A.Night! Words cannot describe how amazing this tour was. Seeing the northern lights has to be one of the most incredible things we have ever seen. Ronnie was the perfect tour guide, his passion and knowledge of the lights was superb. He extended the tour so we could view the lights as much as possible, supplying photos on a professional camera and hot choccy to keep us warm :) Amazing! 10/10 would recommend.

This really was an adventure. Our guide Roni was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Northern Lights. He made the trip very exciting and we were very lucky to see the lights. After two cancelled trips, 3rd night lucky, we saw a fantastic display! Pack your warmest clothes it was very very cold but the included hot chocolate did warm us up. Thanks Roni for a night to remember!

Siggi went out of his way to show us the lights. Highly recommended tour guide and even though we saw the lights he even offered a free retry the day after so we could get even better views! Choose this tour! You even get a hot chocolate :)

We did not see the lights, but Ronnie and Siggy were great! Ronnie chased them all night trying to get a great shot and he had his own camera to take the pics if they showed. Even if you don’t see them it’s still a worthwhile experience.
