    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.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • 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!

    • Are transfers included?

      A free Flybus shuttle transfer to and from the airport is included in this tour. These run in conjunction with flight times and will be located outside the arrival hall in front of the main airport exit. Your Flybus voucher can be found in your travel documents. The evening prior to your departure please let the hotel desk know your flight times ready for your transfer the following day.

    • Where and when does the tour end?

      The tour ends on Day 5 after a final night in your Reykjavik based accommodation. The evening before departure please make the reception aware of your flight times ready for your free transfer to Keflavik Airport the following day.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The hotels listed below are ones which On The Go frequently use on this tour. Please note that On The Go reserve the right to substitute these hotels to ones of a similar standard when necessary.

      - Fosshotel Baron, Reykjavik
      - Arhus Cottages, Hella
      - Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon, Skaftafell

    • What is the minimum age allowed on this tour?

      The minimum age for this tour is 12 years old.

    • What is the average group size for this tour?

      The average group size is about 25 and the max is 30.

    • Am I guaranteed to see the Northern Lights?

      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 seal spotting in Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon to visiting the grand Skogafoss waterfall and travelling the famous Golden Circle.

    • Is there a triple share room option on this tour?

      We can request a triple room from the operator, which would be subject to availability. Please contact our Travel Experts to arrange this.
