    4.5 - Excellent

    This was a good short tour to introduce you to Iceland. Itinerary: The pace of the tour was good and it felt like we used our limited sunlight in December to good effect. The natural elements of Iceland were my primary reason for coming but I enjoyed almost all the included activities (e.g. Greenhouse, cultural museum, geothermal plant). I would consider dropping the "Thorbergur Cultural Heritage Museum and Local Meal" activity at Skaftafell and replacing it with something else. This was not an interesting stop for me and I would have much preferred to have a meal from a different place included (i.e. Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon hotel). Guide / CEO: Our guide / CEO Jonas was fantastic. He was friendly, knowledgable, entertaining and passionate about Iceland. He really went out of his way to make sure we had a good time (getting up at 1am to do northern lights checks then waking us up if any activity was occurring) and knew what to expect. He seemed to have good relationships with all the places we stopped as well. We were lucky to have really good weather for most of the trip and on the one occasion weather impacted our plans Jonas was sure to explain the issue and what was being done to mitigate. Comfort: The hotels we stayed in were excellent and very comfortable and the tour bus had plenty of room for our small group. I didn't realise this was a "comfort" level tour when I booked so the hotels were a very pleasant surprise for me. Great experience overall and I'll be sure to come back in summer soon.

Questions & Answers

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

    • October 5, 2016

      Are the Northern Lights guaranteed on this trip?

      The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis as they are also referred to are one of the many natural wonders of the world and are a natural phenomenon

      As 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. So much is dependent on solar activity, we can accurately predict neither when they will occur nor how frequently.

      Every endeavour will be made on this trip to see the Northern Lights, if it is the correct time of year to see the lights however this is not guaranteed.

      What is the best time to join this tour and get to see the Northern Lights?

      The Northern Lights are visible under dark skies between the months of September to April, preferably under a clear, cloudless sky. Usually, they may be seen between 5pm and 2am.
