Tour was OK but where we stopped to try and see the northern lights left much to be desired. Lots of light pollution from car park lights and loads of steam from the hot springs. Also there were 7 coaches there so lots of people, would have been better if Gray line had used two or more places. We used Deluxe tour from Gray Line last time and it's worth the extra.

I was expecting more timeI was picked up at 9:30 and I got back at 11:30. As soon as we spotted the lights we started driving back.. my understanding was that we were going to be out there until 2amI saw the lights but It was not what I was looking forward too
Reply From Gray Line:

We do apologize that you were hoping to stay longer outside during the tour. For these tours, we do go off of a Northern Lights Forecast, and if a low forecast was predicted later into the night, an early departure can and will happen. We apologize if this was not properly communicated on the night of your tour--we will touch base with our local team in Iceland concerning your review.

Join us on a dark winter night to experience one of nature’s most spectacular displays, when the Northern lights dance across the sky in dramatic shapes and colors.

Located under the "Auroral Oval," Iceland is one of the best places on earth to experience the beautiful and mysterious northern lights.

Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) are most frequently seen around the North Pole, within an oval shaped region drawn around the Northern hemisphere called the "auroral oval." Iceland lies within this most active region meaning that the Northern lights are potentially visible from every place in Iceland.

In reality viewing conditions for Northern lights depend on many factors including geography, weather, the time of day and more. Crisp cold evenings with skies clear enough to see stars is a good indicator for auroral activity.

Operating Northern lights tours in Iceland for over 10 years has taught us a thing or two about this elusive phenomenon and how to decide where each trip should lead for best possibilities and viewing conditions.
