    This was a great experience and I’d highly recommend it to any travelers in the area! I visited in mid-March (toward the end of northern lights season) so we were only able to see a couple bands of light, but it was still worth it nonetheless. The lights we did see were beautiful, and it was also an incredible view of the night sky and Reykjavik. Because we didn’t get a fill northern lights display, everyone was given a credit so they could return for free and view them again. I’ll definitely be doing this as soon as I’m back in the area!
