Full description
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. In Iceland, they are visible during the winter months, from late August to April, and appear in many different forms and colors (although light green and pink are the most common). The local partner's Northern Lights team thoroughly studies the weather and aurora forecast in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights. While the lights can often be seen from the city, they are never as clear or magnificent when polluted by the city lights. Getting a warm ride to the best possible site for sightings is well worth it. The Northern Lights are an unforgettable sight and should be witnessed in the best possible conditions. This is tour takes place in a smaller group, but in a big bus to maintain social distancing. That means that you also get more time with your expert guide for assistance on photography and facts.
