    I did a five day tour of Iceland. The local company was wonderful, but On the Go tours support was horrifically bad. I had corresponded with them previously and mentioned that I hadn't received any information about what hotels to stay at or what bus... Show more

    Loved the trip! So much to see in a few days but a good mix of travel and getting out and seeing things. Great to have wifi on the bus and our tour guide was just fantastic.

    Yes it was what I expected. It's not a glam tour, and you do have some long drives in just three days, but we got to see a lot of Iceland in that time and our guide was wonderful.

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

      This tour only runs at optimal times during the year! The tour is closed from May to September - this is because the sky is not dark enough to see the lights.

      While On The Go will make sure that customers experience this tour under the best conditions during the year, the quality of your Northern lights sighting is heavily dependent on the weather - whether it's cloudy or not; as well as the actual activity of the aurora. This is not really linked to one part of the year or another, but more to chance.

      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!
