Northern lights was top of the list and it seemed things were falling into place (18th feb) good aurora forecast, an area not too far from Reykavik with no cloud. The driver picked us up in a comfy minibus and went straight to that place. We stayed for an hour or so

The guide was great, the small bus comfortable and the mountain top very dark... but don't go on nights where there is a full moon! We had fun, but sadly the lights did not come out. :-(

Dear Guest, thank you for your review! we are sorry that you didn't had the full experience. Unfortunately the Northern Lights are a Natural phenomenon and even that we try to predict with much data as possible sometimes we have unpleasant surprises. With that we always let you reschedule until you have a successful tour! thank you for your understanding :) Best Regards TRIPS Powered by SkyBus

Please send us an email (trips@trips.is) with your booking reference so we can revise your situation.

We were lucky enough to see the lights but I think that was because our guide G was very enthusiastic and drove around to different places to try and find them. Even stopped when we were supposed to be on our way back because they suddenly appeared. Definitely worth booking with
