The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis as they are also know are a spectacular natural phenomenon resulting from electrically charged particles from the sun colliding with oxygen particles in our atmosphere appearing as dancing lights high in the sky and are usually green, but occasionally also purple, red, pink, orange and blue. If you are lucky enough you can see the whole rainbow of colours. They are unpredictable and their sights can never be guaranteed.
This is also the perfect time to visit to stay out of the high season crowds even if the weather is a little cold you just need to dress well. The average temperature about 4 °c /40 F, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate, enjoy stunning nature, unique adventure and once in a lifetime sights!
The longer your stay, the better your chances are of seeing them. Go on, take that well-deserved long break for yourself and your loved one(s). You can improve your odds of seeing the Northern Lights by staying in one of the hotels in the countryside and spend every night there. These hotels are strategically located out of the city and away from the bright lights so you can see the Northern Lights from there.

Sig, and his team are amazing hosts. They had our best interest at heart the whole time and went the extra mile to ensure we had the best experience possible. Would highly recommend him and his team.
Deluxe Iceland was the best! They handled all of our transportation, lodging and activities. The trip could not have been better and the staff was exceptional. If you are traveling to Iceland, you MUST use Deluxe Iceland!
Siggi did a great job from picking us up at the airport to delivering us back. Classy touches like paying for our drink at dinner. He's flexible and takes the weather into account in organizing trips.
