Also known as the Aurora Borealis, (from Aurora, the Roman goddess of sunrise and Boreas, Greek for the north wind), these swirling, colourful displays are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere.

Located just below the Arctic Circle, Iceland is a perfect Northern Lights location. Our guides are well versed with the forecast and weather conditions, and will drive you into the countryside away from light pollution to give you the best chances of seeing them.

The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is from September to mid April on nights with clear skies.

As with any other natural phenomenon, northern lights viewings cannot be guaranteed, they depend on many factors - magnetic activity, sun position and cloud cover. But we try our best to make it happen!
