Our northern lights tour was a terrible experience

The pick up was fine. Our bus on Dec 8 did not have any of the 10 language iPads available, but that was just the start of our disaster. Our tour guide was either on something or drunk as his breath smelled of liquor. He...More

In fairness, the northern lights tour started out great. They have a little mini restaurant out in the clearing they go to with facilities and food. Where this tour went wrong is that on the way back, they “missed” our hotel stop but wouldn’t listen...More

This was a bucket list trip and I couldn't be more pleased. Chasing the northern lights is challenging but with Reykjavik sightseeing we were covered. The nights there was no visibility they cancelled the tour and let us know on time for us to make...More
