“The off road driving to the glacier was great and made possible by the Super Jeep, there is no way you could have driven yourself.
Ao made the night tour for us, he was determined to enable us to see the lights. He was in contact with Diana as we drove in order to get up to date information on cloud cover and solar activity. His photography skills were an unexpected but much needed bonus, he took some amazing photographs of us under the northern lights!”

Northern Lights and Golden Circle Tours

We recently visited Reykjavik for the first time.
We took two tours with Arctic Advanced, a Golden Circle day tour and an evening super Jeep tour to see the northern lights
From my initial contact, Diana was so helpful and efficient in putting together our itinerary. She responded quickly to my numerous questions and even arranged for us to be met at the airport and taken to our hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. She stayed in contact with us during our vacation, as the weather conditions can change rapidly in Iceland and affect tours. They were flexible enough to reschedule our night trip to give us the best opportunity of seeing the lights.
Our guide Ao was fantastic. Because of rescheduling he had a long day with us but his enthusiasm never flagged. We started our day tour a little earlier than most but it paid off as we visited sites without the usual crowds.

The tours were not cheap but they were worth every penny. Potential visitors should be aware that the chances of taking good pictures with an handheld smartphone are virtually zero, thus a quality camera with a stable tripod is really a requirement. Also bear this in mind if you are considering trying to take quality pictures from a boat and remember – the camera sees so much more than the naked eye!
If we visit Iceland again we will definitely book with Arctic Advanced they are the go to guys. This is the only company I would chose. Professional, reliable and flexible, I cannot recommend this company enough.
They made our holiday!! Without Ao we would not have come home with our memories captured in pictures
