There are few phenomena in nature as mysterious and beautiful as the Aurora borealis – The Northern lights. Even after seeing them countless times they never cease to amaze, and on still and cold and silent nights it is almost as you can hear them as they dance across the arctic sky in their mythologic ballet. Even knowing exactly what they are on a scientific scale, solar wind particles, mainly electrons and protons crashing into earth´s upper atmosphere, where they dissolve and lose their energy due to the earth's magnetic field: they still feel as though the Gods are trying to communicate with you.
The weather conditions here in Iceland make it hard for one that is not used to reading weather and cloud forecast. We have all these big mountains and the clouds seek to be around the mountains. It does not happen really often we have clear sky all around us so it can be tricky to find the perfect spot to see the Northern Lights. That´s why it is best to hire a guide to do it for you that is an expert in this. There is no evening the same with the Northern Lights. Be ready for anything. Iceland is probably the most unpredictable country in the world in every way. That is what make Iceland so awesome. You never know what happens next.
Seeing them in a small group with a fun guide and having hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries is the way to see the lights. Your guide will pick you up at a hotel In Reykjavik or the next bus stop. While enjoying the lights or waiting for them to appear, snow angels will be made, hot chocolate & cinnamon buns will be served. If you will miss out on them, you will at least have a wonderful evening. You can also reschedule anytime again in the future.
