What People Are Saying About Reykjavik

Very interesting night to watch Northern lights

We managed to view some dim light, though I heard from most friends that they couldn't see it, guessed they expect to see those dancing northern light. I supposed a good camera able to capture the brightness of the light..

Great tour, fantastic guide. Seeing the lights was extraordinary!!

The tour was great, we got to see the lights & the staff were incredible as they took pictures of us with their professional cameras and gave us hot chocolate and some Icelandic donuts. Definitely a fantastic experience!!

Well organised but unfortunately no lights!

Well organised tour & fantastic guide with a great sense of humour!!! But unfortunately nature wasn't kind to us & we didn't see the lights.

An unforgettable experience with knowledgeable guides

Not too much to say really (in a good way) - pickup was prompt and from the door of my hostel, the guide was entertaining and interesting. The main thing was that they knew which places were least likely to have cloud cover - it was a cloudy night but with solar activity, so that was key. We stopped twice and could see the Northern lights very clearly at the second stop. This stop included some very welcome hot chocolate and pastries, we stayed there until the lights faded away then we were dropped off back in Reykjavik (although not at the door of my hostel, a short walk away).

Made the very best of sighting the Northern Lights - an amazing trip!

Our family of 4 took the 9pm trip, sailing for some 1/2 an hour out from the harbour until being far enough away from the city lights to be able to see better into the clear sky. although moonlight was a factor not in our favour. The sea was calm and still. Luckily, we had a very experienced member of staff on board, who kept us well informed as to when the first signs of the elusive lights began to appear as a green effervescent glow quite low in the sky. After a while, as our eyes became accustomed to the conditions, we watched as the show dimmed and then reappeared. Although clear, the visibility appeared hazy meaning stars were barely visible and all attempts to photograph the phenomenon were to no avail. However, the Company did promise to post photos taken by their onboard photographer who had the necessary kit and set-up on their Facebook page, and also emailed them to us. These really did record what we had seen!! Thanks for one-off special which we will remember for ever.
