Simone "Missed the northern lights, but it didn’t matter. There was so much more to this trip. Waterfalls, guisers, glaciers, black sand beaches. Such amazing, dramatic landscape. To an Australian, it’s so different - like visiting another planet. In December it was very icy. If I went again I would bring light rubber crampons. It would have been nice if there was a bit more of a food focus on this trip. ..."

    Great tour. It was great having a fellow photographer as a guide. He stopped at great locations to allow us to get the best photos. Thanks Kristjen!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Are the Northern Lights guaranteed on this trip?

      As a naturally occurring phenomenon, the appearance of the Northern Lights is notoriously difficult to predict any further in advance than about two hours before it happens. So much is dependent on solar activity, we can accurately predict neither when they will occur nor how frequently. Every endeavour will be made on this trip to see the Northern Lights however this is not guaranteed.

      That being said, this tour is packed with plenty of other amazing and unforgettable experiences! You will have the opportunity to bathe in the geothermal Blue Lagoon, see the mighty Seljalandsfoss waterfall and take on a glacier hike.

    • Do you have any customised Iceland tours?

      Unfortunately we do not have any customised trips available in this region. The trips available are set itineraries and group tours.

    • Is it possible to have an extra night accommodation?

      We can arrange an extra night in a single room per person, per night with taxes included. Please contact us to arrange this.
