Will we definitely see the northern lights?
No. The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon just like the weather and therefore it can’t be controlled. However in the evening, regardless of clouds and if we have clear skies, we will be outside trying.
How many people are on your tours?
I want my tours to be as personal as possible and this is why my tours are true small group tours and are limited to no more than 5 people per tour.
What are the sleeping arrangements?
You will share a room with another guest of the same sex only. You have to remember that we will only be using the accommodation for sleeping in, and also preparing food, 90% of the time we will be out taking photos.
Is Iceland expensive?
Yes and no. It all depends where you are coming from. I find coming from the UK prices are similar, sometimes slightly more expensive. If coming from the Eastern Europe or USA you will it more expensive. Over 7 days I find I spend roughly £150 on food, this includes eating in a restaurant one night and gas station stops for coffee.
What is self-catering?
Self catering means that we will prepare our own food for the day from groceries that have been purchased at a supermarket. That’s not to say we won’t be stopping at cafes, gas stations to grab a quick bite – especially for coffee! We will eat at 1 restaurant on the day we go to Vestrahorn.
Can I bring food with me?
As long as the food is not fresh food then you can bring food with you, things like noodles, energy bars, cup-a-soups, pot noodles etc anything really that is sealed. The usual rules apply when traveling from country to country.
