Don’t Do It

My husband and I came to Iceland to celebrate our anniversary and his 55th birthday. Obviously, the northern lights are a major sightseeing event. I searched many different tour companies, and the most important thing for us was to be in a small group versus a larger tour. The tour operator guaranteed a group of six or less. After arriving 30 minutes late to pick us up while standing in the cold, we were shocked to see a large bus with at Least 16 other people. Since we were apparently the last pick up, I sat in the front and my husband was in the back of the bus. Nice way to celebrate our anniversary. The tour guide never introduced himself, never told us any interesting northern lights facts or the science behind it, and was generally simply a driver. He did not engage with any of us and stood away from everyone while we were out of the bus. While he did attempt two locations, we did not see the northern lights but that was not the purpose for a negative review. This was by far the least expensive option….I feel completely ripped off, and what was supposed to be such a special night was ruined.

Hi I am sorry that was your experience, I was not able to do this tour personally like I planned and had to get a contractor to operate the tour for me in a short notice. If you are still available or will come back here then we have unlimited retries to see the lights and ill make sure ill take you personally next time.

Tour operator, Thor, was very nice. The first night I had scheduled the tour was cancelled due to clouds and the auroras not being very active, so we rescheduled. The day we rescheduled for looked very promising (forecast showed clearing of the clouds and active auroras)! Viator describes this tour as being on a super Jeep and that is false information. The vehicle isn’t a super Jeep, but a passenger van with 4x4 and extra ground clearance. From the start of the tour another passenger was telling the operator that other tour groups are already seeing the lights at certain spots. Well, we didn’t go to any of those spots, and i’m pretty sure we were one of the only tours out that night that didn’t see the northern lights 😩
