Northern Lights hunting - adviceHello,
We will be in Iceland for the Airwaves festival for a week and since probably on our first night after arrival, we will be a bit tired, we were hoping to catch the Aurora Borealis. Probably no one will want to drive in that night, we were thinking if somebody could recommend a nicer tour, maybe done by a mini van, or anyhow, something that is more worth it.
I know it is not a guarantee ever, to catch the northern lights, but I thought maybe people here have some experience and they can point us out to a better operator / better deal / etc.
One last question, what happens if it rains or if it is very cloudy? Does the tour get postponed?

2Hi, did you have any luck with the Northern Lights?
I am doing some research myself for November this year. The following company was mentioned by someone in this forum:
And this is what they say in relation to cancellation due to unfavourable weather conditions:
We cannot guarantee sightings even though the tour is operated.
In these cases passengers are offered a second departure for free.
I understand that it is pretty common practice for tour companies in Scandinavia to offer a second Northern Lights tour for free if the first one was unsuccessful.
