- Having the professional astronomer with this tour is key to its success. We saw the Northern Lights because he stayed up all night and woke us to see them. Other groups in our hotel did not see the aurora because their tour leader was asleep. The tour leader, Gusti, organised the tour well and adapted it to suit the daylight available and the interests of the group. He is very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed his Icelandic sense of humour. If you want to spend extra time in Reykjavik I recommend booking your own hotel in the city centre. Don't book extra days in the hotels that Explore use because they are a long way out of the city and you can't get there by public transport.
