Stand in awe of the Aurora Borealis

Allow us to plan your exclusive winter trip to Iceland and maximize your chances of seeing the Northern Lights.

Odds of seeing the lights are highest around the vernal- and autumnal equinoxes. March/April and September/October are therefore the months you should aim for when planning a Northern Light visit to Iceland.

The aurora are electrical disturbances in the Earth´s magnetic field, caused by solar wind. During the equinoxes the earth’s axial tilt aligns at a peak angle to “accept” the solar wind particles streaming from the sun, thus allowing us to see the Northern Lights.

To be able to see the mysterious dance of the aurora we need clear dark skies and fast solar winds. Our expert guides use aurora forecast tools to aim for the best night to take you out on a hunt for the lights. Imagine floating in a private geothermal pool with the aurora dancing above you in the dark arctic skies.
