Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis

The Aurora Borealis - or Northern Lights - are one of nature's most celebrated, most beautiful and rarest occurrences. Caused by collisions between charged particles in the highest reaches of the earth's atmosphere, witnessing the spectacular lightshow is a numinous and unforgettable experience. Visitors to Iceland will be pleased to know that, due to the country's latitudinal position, spotting the Aurora Borealis is commonplace between September and April - just head away from the city lights on a clear, crisp night, and the otherworldly glow in the night sky soon becomes apparent. Although somewhat of a 'routine' display for locals, a sighting of the Northern Lights may well prove to be one of the best things to see during your Iceland vacation.
