The Northern Lights


hen you’re in Iceland in the winter, changes are high that you’re in Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis season. The nights are pitch black, and they‘re long. That means that if you‘re visiting right now, your chances are as high as they can be of catching the ever elusive, yet beautiful lights!

The Northern Lights

However, nothing‘s for free in this world – and neither are the Northern Lights. You’re never guaranteed to see them and luck always plays a fair part. Sometimes they decide to play nice and dance around for awe struck visitors, but at other times they won’t show, even though all conditions indicate a light spectacle should be showing.
