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

Siddy took us on a 30min bumpy jeep ride, 30min hike and then 30min exploring the beautiful ice cave. ice cave was magical and changes every year! we also took a pitstop to try some refreshing glacier water! hike was easy, we even had toddlers with us

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!

A very nice experience, the tour guide was really nice and taught us a lot abut glaciers and ice land, I love how small the group is
