What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

Frank was an awesome guide and I hope to have him the next time I visit Iceland! Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see the lights but he and the driver were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and gave it all they could to show us the lights. They certainly made the best of the situation and made it a fun adventure!

Very well organised… very fortunate to see the lights… extremely cold hot drinks available to warm up… didn’t wait long for the lights to appear was amazing.. and brilliant to have professional photos… even more amazing as daughter partner proposed with lights in background

The experience is very cool. The professionals who accompany you do their best to ensure that you live a beautiful and unique experience. I regretted not having booked to go see them another time, one is not enough. Thanks.

Fantastic experience overall, we were lucly to see the lights and it was great to have the dome to go in and out of to keep warm. The only downside was that the only way to arrive is by taxi which is £55 each way

Frank, our guide, was a great storyteller and knew exactly where to go. We arrived to a park with nobody else and saw the lights. Later, several other busses arrived—we’d found the best spot!
