  2. It’s impossible to rate this highly enough. We had a fantastic evening and were able to see the northern lights. The guide was so friendly and engaging, and very informative. It was also fascinating to be able to use his telescope to see stars and planets “up close”. And the hot chocolate and cake were delicious!

  3. Amazing guide, Þórsteinn (sp?) (pronounced Thruston) was extremely knowledgeable and this company is so lucky to have someone with his passion and personality. He seems to have a very genuine excitement and extensive understanding of what he does and it really made this experience all the more special for myself and my boyfriend.

    Communication was clear about pickup and they do well to repeatedly stress to dress extremely warmly and in layers since you will be outside for several hours at night in winter. Iceland in winter can be a damp, windy cold, so I would also recommend bringing hot hands warming packs along in your boots or mittens to stay extra comfortable. We also wore hats, jackets/snowpants with some wind blocking capabilities over several light thermal layers and were quite comfortable for the duration. The area where we were standing was uneven frozen grass, and you will be standing for a few hours so know yourself and abilities and plan accordingly for your personal needs! Also, no bathroom out there, so be prepared 🙂

    Seeing the stripes and moons of Saturn through the telescope which he brought was magical and we saw dozens of meteors while we were out too. The truly bright colors of the lights are really only visible through slow shutter speeds on a tripod camera (which they bring), but as time went on we were better able to see the lights dancing with our naked eye. All the pictures they take are emailed to you within a day or so at no additional charges. Can’t wait to put together a video of all the pictures they sent to really capture the movements of this amazing natural phenomenon.

    A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend!
