The tour starts from Reykjavik normally around 9 pm. The forecast for the evening basically controls the area that the guide chooses as the hunting grounds for the night. Normally, the area is within 60 minutes driving range outside of Reykjavik. On the way, the guide will go over some of the history of Iceland and the northern lights, how they appear and so on. At the hunting grounds, the guide will show great control and patience while observing the clear winter sky. Sometimes he can feel it in his hips if there are going to be lights or not. It is essential to monitor the guide and follow his instructions in order to be successful in the hunt. One of the most important instruction is that you have to look up into the sky if you want to see something. Sometimes its only stars but if you are lucky, dancing northern lights. There is free Wi-Fi in the car. The guide will do his best to help you with your camera settings in order to catch a picture of the lights. The best way is to bring a camera and a tripod. Do not forget the extra battery. After a successful tour, you are taken back to Reykjavik.
