    The three days on the road were great. I liked the itinerary and I felt I saw a nice variety of Icelandic treasures. There was so little in or around Reykjavík, though, that I found it misleading to bill the tour as 5 days.

    The trip was wonderful. Our guide, Beggy, was knowledgable and easy to talk to. The group we had was 9 total people, which to me is the perfect size to get to know others and not feel overly crowded during the tour. The room at Hotel Cabin was cramped,... Read more

    We had a wonderful time on our tour of Iceland! Our tour guide was knowledgable and it was such a lovely vacation not having to worry about how we would be getting around or to the next site. Would recommend On the Go Tours to our friends.

Questions & Answers

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

    • Do I need travel insurance for this tour?

      Travel insurance is mandatory for all On The Go tours, therefore we do ask travellers to make sure they have arranged their travel insurance before departure. Insurance can cover the cost of your airfare, as well as your tour(s) in the case of unforeseen cancellation. It ensures that you do not have to worry about any unplanned changes to your travel plans, such as having to rush home to an ill family member or having a tour changed or cancelled because of a natural disaster. It can even help with smaller things - like lost luggage or stolen cameras. We recommend World Nomads travel insurance as just one of many travel insurance companies you can use.

    • When is the best time of year to take this tour?

      This tour only runs at optimal times during the year and is unavailable from May to September. While On The Go will make sure that customers experience this tour under the best conditions during the year, this is heavily dependent on the weather - whether it's cloudy or not as well as the activity of the Aurora.

      September and October are the months we would recommend to anybody who prefers to avoid the extreme cold of an Arctic winter. November and December are very much a time of change in the Arctic and heralds the arrival of the first major snows of the winter. The snow does bring quite a bit of cloud cover but the shorter days also bring darker skies which increases the amount of time during which the Aurora might be visible. January to March are probably the three most popular months for Aurora hunting because they bring long dark nights and plenty of snow to play in during the daylight hours while you wait for darkness to fall!

    • Am I guaranteed to see the Northern Lights?

      The Northern Lights (called the Aurora Borealis) is 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. Therefore, it is important to understand that the tour operator won’t be able to guarantee the perfect weather conditions while on the tour.

      This tour includes two dedicated nights of Northern lights spotting in southern Iceland. On the Go will do everything they can to increase your chance of spotting the fabled lights, however, a sighting cannot be guaranteed.

      That being said, this tour is packed with plenty of other amazing and unforgettable experiences, from bathing in the Blue Lagoon spa to visiting the grand Skogafoss waterfall and travelling the famous Golden Circle.
