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!

  • 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 tour operator won’t be able to guarantee the perfect weather conditions while on the tour. GJ travel will do everything they can to increase your chance of spotting the fabled lights, and the length of this tour means there will be numerous opportunities to see the Northern Lights, making a sighting likely!

    This tour is packed with plenty of other amazing and unforgettable experiences which make it a once in a lifetime trip. You will visit the crystal ice cave in Vatnajökull, cruise the Breiðafjörður fjord, see the Geysir geothermal fields and learn all about the elusive Northern Lights.
