ICELAND IS THE BEST PLACE TO SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS!
The winter in 2013 is predicted to be the brightest Northern Light display for 50 years due to the Solar Maximum.
Head out into one of the pitch-black Icelandic winter nights and enjoy the silence in our remote nature while taking a look at the breathtaking Aurora Borealis – now that daylight is becoming less and less up here in the far north, Northern Lights season has arrived. And as a bonus, this winter, there are even better chances of catching a glimpse of this fascinating phenomenon: NASA scientists predict the brightest Northern Lights display for 50 years thanks to the Solar Maximum – a period where the sun´s magnetic field on the solar equator rotates at a slightly faster pace than at the solar poles. The cycle between Solar Maximums takes an average of 11 years, and NASA forecasted that 2013 will bring the greatest scene since 1958. So take your chance and head for Northern Lights hunting in Iceland!
Arctic Adventures offers the most extensive Northern Lights tours catalogue in Iceland; day tours from Reykjavík and Akureyri in North Iceland and even some overnight tours to remote mountain huts. Every tour is enjoyed in the comfort of our super jeeps with 4-12 clients in each jeep along with a specially trained, expert guide to tell you all about the legendary Aurora Borealis. Using these specially modified super jeeps we move away from the crowds and off the beaten track, where silence and serenity will keep us company as we hunt for the magical lightshow.
Please note that all of our Northern Lights tours are heavily dependent on weather and conditions, and we will evaluate the likelyhood of seeing the lights every time we are planning a departure, giving you our estimation of whether we can reasonably expect to see the Aurora Borealis. The search for the lights in an adventure you undertake, and every customer must realize we can make no guarantees to see them. But we promise to do our very best.
