About our Iceland Northern Lights Vacations
The thrill of witnessing the aurora borealis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights and in warmer temperatures than in other countries in Scandinavia, thanks to its proximity to the Arctic Circle. Above that, the choices for a fantastic backdrop are endless. Of course, a lot of natural factors need to align just right for the magical lights to occur and to be visible to us.
Whether you are staying in Reykjavik for a weekend or spending several days in Iceland, you will find that it is possible to hunt the northern lights in Iceland in many ways. You can join an Iceland northern lights vacation or a northern lights day tour, rent a car and go on a northern lights hunt yourself or opt for a private tour for maximizing the chances of witnessing the northern lights.
Remember that as northern light is a natural phenomenon that depends on weather conditions and the period of solar explosions there is no guarantee that you will see the northern lights even if the forecast is promising.
