When conditions are favorable we head out to search for the Aurora Borealis, often called the Northern Lights.
The season for Aurora starts 1 of September but you get a sneak peek if you are really lucky in August. See some of the photos our friends captured last night.
Sometimes they are brilliant, sometimes just there, and every once in a while „missing in action“. The Northern Lights – Aurora Borealis is a tour on winter nights, operated ONLY when sky and Aurora conditions are forecast to be favourable.
The best tour to see Auroras in both south and north Iceland.
Take a walk through history and learn how people and cultures around the world saw the Northern Lights via legends and myths connected to this amazing phenomenon. There are interactive displays as well as a specially equipped ‘photo booth’ where you can learn how to adjust your camera’s settings should you want to try your hand at capturing the auroras yourself.
It’s dark, you’re outside and everything is quiet. A flicker of light in the sky grabs your attention. Pale and modest at first, soon intense and vibrant, transforming the dark sky into a mighty display of nature’s power. It’s hypnotic but perhaps strangest of all; there is complete silence, while cascades of green, yellow, violet and red dance across the sky in silent harmony. It is like a mighty symphonic ballet with muted sound.
