-Driver set out for a remote viewing location but stopped early because the Lights were already starting and he didn't want to waste viewing time (or perhaps have them end) by continuing to drive. Good Choice! -Additionally, we were the only group at this location, not crowded together with people from several other minivans or buses, which made it a good experience. -Driver was Very knowledgeable, talked interestingly and informatively while driving, yet never overdid any monologues. He answered questions authoritatively without being pedantic and was always open to follow-ups. -Of course there was plenty of tasty hot chocolate. :-) -Contrastingly, my family and I paid for a similar tour (different company) in Kiruna, Sweden, that was a Horrible waste of time and money! The driver was completely uninformative, unimaginative, and quiet while he drove us in a 4-hour large circle in deep fog. -But the Reykjavik tour was an EXCELLENT experience that I HIGHLY recommend! GOOD LUCK! :-)

It was a well-rounded affair from the first to the last moment. Kristen was a very nice, competent guide, from whom we learned a lot ... about the northern lights and about Iceland. The small group was so pleasant and the place to admire the lights for hours was just breathtaking. Any time!
