    What we really enjoyed about this style of travel was the small group (14) and the activities. Our tour guide Jonas was also excellent. We loved the stay at the Alftrod Guesthouse and the special meals prepared by Jonas.

    I liked the small group. You got to know everyone and have fun together. Liked having the same guide the whole trip. Evar was great! He was low key, informative and never made us feel rushed.

FAQs

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

    This tour only runs at optimal times during the year to ensure that the skies are dark enough to see the lights to their full effect. The sighting is heavily dependent on the cloud cover and the activity of the Aurora. This is often down to chance, and all of the tour dates offer an equal chance of a sighting.

    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 the Northern Lights guaranteed on this trip?

    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 G-Adventures won’t be able to guarantee perfect weather conditions while on the tour.

    That being said, this tour is packed with plenty of other amazing and unforgettable experiences. You will have the chance to explore Icelandic capital Reykjavik, stand by the mighty Skogafoss waterfall, and go Lava Caving by the Blue Mountains. It's sure to be an amazing trip!
