    Bustravel Iceland are fantastic - when we went on this tour we witnessed a fantastic Northern lights show (after rescheduling due to poor weather). We were lucky enough to have Siggi as our tour guide, who went above and beyond to show and tell us about the Northern Lights. His passion for the Northern Lights was infectious and his predictions about when and how they would show were pretty much spot on. Not only did he tell us how to spot the lights, he also showed us how to capture them on our phones/cameras and was kind enough to share his spectacular photographs, which he captured on his DSLR, with us at the end of the tour. Fabulous.

    Avholservice worked great. The selected spot was okay. For photo enthusiasts like me, I would have liked a slightly better background. We were lucky and Aurora Borealis soon showed up. It was great how enthusiastic our friendly guide Siggi was about the northern lights. And so he drove everyone off the bus again when he was about to leave because the northern lights were picking up again. A wonderful experience with a well organized team. thanks

    Although a bit pricey it is worth specially if the northern light activity is low and sky is cloudy as we experienced. The guide/driver had to actually hunt the lights finding the best spot by experience and in the end we were able to see the lights even though it was not very strong but that is attributed to the weather only.
