5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2018

We barely saw the northern lights due to cloud cover I still recommend this trip rather than driving around in a bus. They gave you warm clothing on the boat and would highly recommend. It leaves from the Harbor had to get there on your own and they drove you back to your hotel at 12:30AM. Ideal if your hotel is walking distance to the Harbor. We stayed at the Hilton Nordica about 25 min walk.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We would not have seen the lights if we had gone by bus. The boat was able to get to open spaces better.


3 star rating: Worth doing November 2016

Yeah this was just ok......he said we saw Northern Lights but nothing really very faint.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2016

Not that great. You could barely see anything and there wasn't anything in the form of entertainment of information. You can basically see more from the shore right near Harpa.
