What you'll do

I pick up at 9 pm from your accommodation or a bus stop nearby depending on the location on clear nights I have a few favorite spots to go to in a short distance from Reykjavík where the photos of you with the Northern Lights come out best, on Days where is a little cloudy we drive around until we locate a good spot where we can see stars while looking north but that are parts the conditions required to see the lights other depends on wind speed, density, and interplanetary magnetic field.
The tour is 3-5 hours depending on if we find lights early and everyone is cold :-) or if we need to work harder to see the lights we will stretch the tour a little
We offer Photos with you and the northern lights, Kleinur (Icelandic Donuts ) and Brennivín free of charge
and on the rear occasion we do not see the lights there are as many free retries,s as required until you find the lights

Valthor was very easy to communicate with to set up the excursion. He picked us up very near our accommodation in his fun vehicle. Vehicle was warm and comfortable and fun to ride in. We met the photographer and another group at a place outside the city and saw the northern lights almost immediately. I was not expecting to be successful because the weather had been awful and another tour had been cancelled from another company, but we saw a great display of lights and even a shooting star. The only problem was that there was two carloads of people and the pictures took a long time for the other groups and we waited until last and the lights had faded by then so our pictures didn’t turn out as well as the other peoples. We drove to two other remote locations to look for more lights but it had clouded up. The pictures were made easily available and we found them the next morning. All in all, if you are ok with the price, you will enjoy this experience.
