Do the tour. It’s fun.
, Mar 2022
The tour guide is an independent contractor, which I like. They know the area rather than being part of some company located in another country. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and knew exactly where to go to find pockets of clear sky and darkness. He gave all kinds of interesting facts about the aurora and he knew pretty much everything there is to know about every type of camera. So he helped us all with our settings to get the best pics. I’d definitely recommend the tour. Unfortunately we had a lot of cloud coverage so, our pics are as spectacular as we’d hoped. But that’s nature. You sort of get what you get. Definitely do the tour, but adjust your expectations to the weather ahead of time and you won’t be disappointed.

Swirling northern lights

Excellent guide, he knew the skies of northern Iceland. We had a great hour viewing the beautiful northern lights swirling in the sky.
No lights but still learned

Although the lights did not corporate it was still a good time. Armand our guide was great. We learned how to hunt for the lights on our own and took this with us for the rest of the trip. Definitely a great experience.
