Assel "I think what made this tour amazing is our tour guide Hjalti! He's very knowledgeable and very funny. He's given us enough knowledge to learn the history of this beautiful country but also it's nature and geology. We are a family of three with son of 12 years old and he said that he loved the tour and the way Hjalti presented the tour. We're very happy with Hjalti and Arctic Adventures thank you! ..."

    My friends and I had a week in Iceland and didn't know how to fit so much in such a small time. We were nervous about booking a tour, because whenever we do we feel like cattle just being brought from one major crowded place to the next, but this could not... Read more

    My 5 day tour was great and I would recommend this tour to my family and friends. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see the Northern Lights but I am still happy with the whole tour and it was awesome.

Questions & Answers

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

    • 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 any time of the year that this tour runs offers 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!

    • 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. Every endeavour will be made to ensure that travellers stand the best chance of a Northern Lights viewing.

      That being said, Arctic Adventures have ensured that this tour is packed with plenty of other once in a lifetime experiences. You will have the opportunity to visit the Deildartunguhver hot spring, explore the Golden Circle, see the mighty Seljalandsfoss waterfall and take on a glacier hike.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations used on this tour will be 3-star hotels with private bathrooms. We are unable to provide a set hotel list for this tour as all accommodations are subject to change.
