The Northern Lights Luxury


What are the Northern Lights?

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.

The Best time to visit for the Northern Lights

Visit Iceland in the darkest months of the year October through March to have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights dacing in the sky.

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!

Increase your chances

You have to keep in mind that this is the winter time and the weather can be unpredictable. For this reason, the Northern lights should not be the main goal of your stay here. If they are a priority, however, you can increase your chances of seeing them by first making sure to make your stay a long one - at least a week.

Northern Lights Iceland

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.
