    Although we were fortunate to see the Northern Lights, we were very disappointed that our guide did not take photos of us with the NL in the background as we expected having seen these photos on your website. Afterwards I emailed Artic Adventures and was told that the guide was

    There are a plethora of northern lights tours, but we selected this one because they offered free photos. We experienced a few issues with this company. First, the bus showed up and it reeked of fish. It was a very strong smell and the bus was packed with customers. We were the

    Dear travelsfordayss, We welcome all feedback both positive and negative as it helps us improve our services. The safety and overall enjoyment of our customers are factors that we value greatly. In Iceland, the weather and light can change by the minute, and although the guides are instructed on how to take the best possible photos, taking a perfect shot of each customer is not always met, especially while simultaneously trying to catch the most visible Northern Lights. Please note, in order to capture a perfect northern lights shot our guides shoot with a long exposure, which is a movement-sensitive mode, in which every tiny movement can make a moving object/person looks slightly blurry. ​ We are very sorry that you felt uncomfortable during transportation. Our tour vehicles are being sent out to tour after being cleaned and inspected. Any smell of food, perfume or any other odors inside of the vehicle during the tour is completely out of our control as customers are allowed to bring their own snacks, etc. Once again thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding this experience. We apologize your expectations weren't met. We will have already passed your thoughts regarding both issues to the responsible parties and do our best to solve them for our future tours. ​

    Our guide Emil really enhanced the enchanting experience. Don’t try it yourself, leave it to the professionals and take a camera. Phones don’t cut it

    After watching the weather reports say rain, rain, rain leading up to my trip... we got very lucky and had a cool, crisp, sunny day and a perfect clear evening. The moon was bright but it was cloudy enough to block the moonlight sufficiently. The tour guide was funny,

    I booked the tour on the day and was warned by the receptionist at my hostel that the chances of seeing Northern Lights was slim due to the weather. I decided to press ahead with the booking as I knew that the weather was only going to get worse in the next few days. Our tour
