In the ethereal realm of Iceland, a celestial spectacle awaits. The dance of the Northern Lights, scientifically known as the aurora borealis, graces the Arctic skies, leaving observers awe-inspired. These mesmerizing lights are a result of solar particles colliding with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole, giving birth to an enchanting display of vibrant colors. While shades of light green and pink often steal the show, the Northern Lights illuminate Iceland’s wintry heavens from late August to April, offering a celestial spectacle like no other.
Our Northern Lights team leaves no stone unturned at Iceland Highlights to ensure you witness this natural wonder in all its glory. Each evening, we meticulously analyze the weather and aurora forecasts to pinpoint the perfect location for your rendezvous with the Northern Lights. While glimpses of this celestial phenomenon can occasionally be caught amidst the city lights, their true grandeur unfolds when unobstructed by urban glow. To savor this ethereal display to its fullest, we offer a warm and comfortable ride to an optimal viewing location.
The Northern Lights reveal their full splendor when Mother Nature cooperates. Thus, we make the most of favorable weather conditions to present you with an awe-inspiring spectacle that will remain etched in your memory.
