Iceland’s Magical Northern Lights

October 4, 2021 - October 10, 2021
Each year, during the winter months, travelers journey to Iceland and venture out into the dark to see the magical but elusive Northern Lights.  This natural phenomenon is the product of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere; the results are spectacular. It is known that the best time to witness the lights in Iceland is from late September to mid-April, when the nights are the longest.  The light show is truly dazzling and worth the pursuit.
