    What to Expect
    From mythology and old scripts we know that scientists and people have wonderedabout green lines over the skies for thousands of years. In northern countries, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas. The Eskimos believe that they are the souls of animals. Some even believe that the auroras dance closer to the those who are watching them, that they will envelop you, and take you to the heavens. Many believe that its a sign that the spirits of their loved ones are still close and are watching over them always.

    From Reykjavik we will be hunting the Northern Lights in the west of Iceland, passing Borgarnes town. But it is the weather that will guide our way. Heading to the east of Reykjavik we can often see the Northern Lights in the Arborg area or even deeper in land near Geyser and the valley of Haukdal and Thingvellir National Park. In some cases the weather will direct us elsewhere, where we can find the northern lights in Reykjanes area up to 60km south from Reykjavik.

    Amanda, Thank you for this wonderful review. Yes, weather in autumn this year is really crazy. I didn't aspect it as summer was more than fantastic, so I thought it will continue. Days before I cancelled tours and up to evening that night I didn't been sure at all if we will get any lights. But clouds and wind worked with us. However, full moon that night didn’t want to be covered with clouds night we made was the best one that period. Thank you for be my guest. Andres

    Andres was so great! He is really prompt at responding to email. There were 4 of us and he picked us up from our hotel for our northern lights tour. He brought his dog, Hercules, with him! It was great for us because we are total dog people. (If dogs aren't your thing, he is a

    Ashley, Days after our tour I thought about you since you were very happy with timing. It was last northern lights before days of cloudy and rain. I am sorry for all travellers came after you and they went back home without any tour or without to see lights. But similar time as your night is coming back and more happy travellers will come from that kind of night tours. You all are really easy going people and my opinion is rest of tour you had a good time together. Thank you for this review and to be as you are. Andres

    My husband and I booked a private tour with Iceland Activities to see the northern lights in early March. It was an excellent experience with Andrés as our guide! We were so lucky the atmosphere and weather cooperated with a clear sky, beautiful light display, and incredible

    Andres is lovely, very helpful by email beforehand. Originally it looked like he was fully booked but when I emailed he let us book on and we went out with two other parties. It was nice having such a small group as I’d heard negative things about booking on a large coach trip.

    Original bookingen was for Friday but conditions were not good so trip was postponed. Andres was very helpful and responded fast on questions we had before the tour. Despite a lot of clouds and rain he managed to find some clear sky. Unfortunately there was not a lot of light
