    We had an amazing time! Loved that we got to see so much! The cabins in South Iceland were great, had a little kitchenette, they were right on a river. Perfect location for viewing the Northern Lights! My only complaint is we didn’t spend enough time at the Blue Lagoon. We only had about an hour forty five minutes and that included changing before and after. So really only about an hour fifteen in the lagoon. Not nearly enough time for me.

    I had a wonderful time and learned so much about Iceland. I had so many misconceptions but Simone was so knowledgeable and answered or found the answer to every question. She provided us with every opportunity to see as much as possible in 3 days. She was delightful to be around.

    The trip was spectacular the views astounding. Our tour guide had such passion for Iceland. Simone was very informative and kept it interesting while having a great sense of humor. She went above and beyond as a professional photographer she was kind enough to take all of our pictures with a backdrop of the Northern Lights. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone.

    This tour was very disappointing. There were a number of issues I should point out. The hotel Cabin room was the size of a match box. There is not enough room for one person let alone 2. You only have enough room to walk in turn around and lie on your bed. As for your suitcases you need to place them under the bed or use them as pillows. I had the hotel receptionist contact the manager from ‘on the go tours’ regarding this issue, only to be told ‘its your problem’! Secondly this is a 3 day tour not 5. Upon arrival at the hotel there was no information leaflet, no instructions, absolutely no information regarding the tour which was to commence the following day. There was no arrival meeting to get to know and introduce the other people. We were to meet the tour guide the following morning and we were not even sure where to find her. If felt as if we had all just hopped on a public bus and all going to the same places. The City tour on the second day was a real quick fly by drive of the city. The blue lagoon was the only highlight of this trip and you only get to spend 2 hours there. Overall I believe this 3 day tour is far too expensive and can be done solo without joining a tour group, by booking day trips with local agencies upon arrival. Food was also very expensive. We were not given much of a choice for meals. The restaurants we were taken to were very expensive. I have never paid $18 for a cup of soup anywhere else. I would not recommend this tour.

    My guide Simone was lovely funny, considerate and had great knowledge of Iceland Coach was ok clean and simple could of had charging sockets as I only had my phone to take pictures due to the cold weather my phone battery would lower very quickly Accommodation was ok clean basic but it was all you needed the cabins we had to watch the northern lights were lovely cosy and very scenic with the snow on the ground My group was nice mixture of couples, singletons (like me) and friends Overall great trip

We were fortunate to see some the night before our tour began (it was recommended to book Northern lights tours before and after the main tour to optimize our chances to see the lights) Unfortunately we had rain most of our 3 days but did see some lights one of the nights. However, the tour was interesting in and of itself. The accommodations were clean adequate given the price. I'd do a stop over again- maybe take a longer tour of the whole island. Just be prepared to pay a lot for meals.

Questions & Answers

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

    • 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.

      It is a great site for looking at different offers. I am very excited about my upcoming trip later down in the year. I have recommended TourRadar to friends and family who want to travel. It is simple to book and secure tours. The communication is fast from tour companies which are needed when considering investments such as tours.
