    A great trip to many tourist attractions in a short time for a good value. Our tour guide Simone was funny, knowledgeable, and an excellent driver during an occasional white out condition. Due to challenging weather, the glacier walks were cancelled but... Show more

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 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, therefore it is important to understand that the tour operator won’t be able to guarantee perfect weather conditions while on tour.

      GJ travel 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 bathing in the Blue Lagoon spa to travelling the famous Golden Circle and taking on an optional glacier hike.

    • What are the inclusions?

      The inclusions of this tour are as follows:

      Arrival & departure airport transfer by FLYBUS Plus shuttle (no guide)
      Fully escorted 3-day bus tour with an English-speaking guide
      4-nights budget accommodation, in rooms with private shower/wc (see information below) or hotel upgrade option
      Daily breakfast
      Entrance with towel at Blue Lagoon
      Entrance fee to Skógar folk museum and turf houses

      Northern Lights program during 2 evenings with a combination of lectures, presentations, film and guided searches for the Northern Lights and midnight refreshments
