5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

The food was good- tasty and a variety of disges. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The boat ride was well organized and the narration was informative. Brace yourself though- I've never been colder in my life. They provide good coveralls, just make sure they don't run out of your size. Saw the lights even though it was close to the end of the season. Overall definitely recommend this combo tour. My only recommendation would be to make it a little easier to find the boat after the dinner.

The restaurant experience was superb. The food was excellent and the service along with the staff were exceptional.
The cruise to watch the northern lights was good, but we did not see the lights. The company promised to credit us for another trip.

This was an amazing experience. The whole fine dining experience in the Kopar restaurant was exceptional, the staff very attentive and every course superb. Even though we didn't get to see the Northern Lights the boat was brilliant, the atmosphere on board was lovely the crew brilliant, we even had 3 poems read out over the loudspeaker about the Lights. Highly Recommended.

Dinner was fantastic, the waitstaff at Kopar was amazing.

The Northern Lights were a 5 that night, plus it was only a little bit cold and there was no rain. So, that experience was also fantastic.

I would do this again in a heartbeat.

The food in Kopar was wonderful and took the stress out of finding somewhere to eat on our first day of arrival. The staff on the boat were really knowledgeable and very excitable when the lights appeared, which incidentally appeared at sunset. We were very lucky and saw a beautiful display.

The Kopar restaurant is very nice and the food was lovely. The table was booked automatically two and a half hours before the boat departure, however, I would recommend changing it to about three hours since we had to rush with our desserts. Unfortunately, after getting to the boat it turned out that the cruise had been canceled due to cloudy weather and we were booked for the next day. It would have been nice if they let us know a little earlier. The following evening the sky was cloudless and we manged to see a nice display of northern lights even though we've been told that it may be too late for it this time of year. The thermal overalls provided on the boat kept us nice and warm during the cruise.

Dinner was fantastic, a must do while in Reykjavik!! Unfortunately the clouds and a full moon made seeing the Northern Lights impossible. My only suggestion would be that they cut the boat ride short when clouds, moon and very little solar activity are in concert. By the end of the ride we were feeling a little captive.
