    Arhus Cabins rooms # 25,26,27,28 are attached to the back of an all-night-brightly-lid storage shed! But the front of these rooms were totally dark and difficult to see the room number ( which was written on a piece of paper that was taped to the wall)... Show more

    The tour was amazing, such beautiful landscapes and Anna Laura was an informative and very helpful guide. Her background in glacier tours was useful when we saw the glacier because she knew the best ( and safest) path to get there. Our driver Albert was... Show more

    The tour was, despite the weather, absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide was incredible and we learned a lot about Iceland, the history, people, culture, traditions and nature. We will come back to hopefully see the Northern Lights this time.

    The only issue I had with this tour is that it was NOT 5 days. It was a 3 day tour with hotel and airport transfer before and after. You do not meet anyone or get contacted by the tour at all until the “second” day. You get dropped off with no more... Show more

    We wish the tour was longer so the next time we go to Iceland we will make sure we stay longer. Our Tour Guide was very knowledgeable, interesting and very nice. She had lots of great tips for making the most of our time and we really appreciated it.

FAQs

    • 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.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      On the last day the tour ends after breakfast at Hotel Cabin with a transfer included back to the airport, however, you can leave earlier if you wish to.
      Please be aware that the final hotel is subject to change until your documents are released.

    • What are the optional excursions?

      The optional excursion for this tour is:

      Northern Lights Evening Tour from Reykjavik.

      Please be aware that this is a guideline only and more information will be given to you once you are on the tour by your guide.
