Not only was he able to get us to the right spot to see them, but he was also able to take photos that will last us a lifetime." Be aware that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and vary from night to night. I will let you know by 6pm on the day of your tour what the forecast is, and my recommendation to go or not.

I will entertain you with witty banter, funny stories and some great Icelandic cultural wisdom. "Thor was absolutely awesome and went out of his way to make us feel welcome." I provide door to door service, I will pick you up and drop you off after the tour. "Thor, our guide, was the best - perfectly adjusted, not intrusive, very nice and helpful."

Where you'll be

We will be exploring the wilderness areas around Reykjavik. The destinations will vary and be optimized to get you the best possible views and photos of the northern lights. Some of the places we stop are the plains of Mosfellsdalur, volcanic ridges in the foothills around Reykjavik and the Reykjanes peninsula. We will travel places buses cannot travel. We have time and we will hunt down the northern lights wherever they may be hiding
