    Know before you go

    • Witnessing a natural phenomenon like the Northern Lights can be a life-changing experience, but it is NOT one that is always guaranteed. If, despite our best efforts, some unforeseen circumstance renders viewing the lights impossible, we offer free re-trie that will be valid for two years from the date of your tour. However, the availability of this free re-trie will depend on the tours that are currently scheduled.
    • We reserve the right to cancel the tour as late as 18.30 pm due to weather not being favorable for us. We make a honest decision and e-mail all our guests on the day of the tour at 18.30pm latest to confirm whether the tour is on or off.
    • We do not offer refunds, whether partial or full, for tours where a sighting was not possible.

    Helmir was a wonderful guide, he went out of his way for us to see the Northern Lights. He knows the best places to see the Lights, even without sharing with people on other tours traveling in large groups. He also has the camera to take the photos correctly, with our cell phone it is not so good, and after the tour Helmir sent us the photos at no extra cost. Finally, we were also able to try traditional snacks and drinks. I fully recommend Aurora Experts and especially Helmir.
