Of all Earth’s natural phenomena, perhaps none are so starkly entrancing as the ethereal Aurora Borealis. On a near-nightly basis, from October to March, the sky above Iceland comes to life with massive, dancing lights, the by-product of solar wind encountering the planet’s magnetosphere.
Venture out into Iceland’s broad valleys and plateaus for an unforgettable spectacle.
Arcs of green. Shimmering violet curtains. Slow-moving pale “clouds”. Every display is different, changing from moment to moment to impress anew with strange colors and shapes.
Snuggle into a blanket, sip your hot chocolate, and enjoy the show.
