Weather forecast may prohibit seeing the Northern Lights, we need (partially) clear skies but Iceland can be cloudy all over. 

On the day of the tour I'll monitor the weather/cloud forecast and in case of a No Go call you before 17.00 hours.

If the weather forecast are favourite for North or Southeast Iceland we have the option to start the tour at an earlier time to cover some distance and find clear skies.

That means we can be driving for 2 hours before we head clear skies.
