Sunday 13/1/2019. Bus full of fellow expectant hunters but, having been disappointed in Iceland almost exactly a year earlier and having listened to the guide’s less than optimistic forecast of seeing much, we drove northwards for over an hour and a half to Hessfjord. Within...More

A fantastic evening, thanks to our guide we saw an amazing and spectacular light show. His experience and patience were second to none. Highly recommended. Photos he took of us were out of this world.

29 Nov 18 - weather conditions really challenging Whilst our chances were less than 10% we did at least get to see a weak showing through the camera lens. That was only through the determined efforts of the guide and especially the driver. Driving out...More

After going in 2012 with this company (see review from that time), I returned with my wife for another trip, hoping to see the lights but as always nothing is guaranteed, that's nature. On the first night the weather was against us but we went...More
