WHY IS IT SO EASY TO SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS IN ICELAND?
The aurora borealis can be seen in countries near the Arctic Circle. They are most commonly seen in Iceland, Greenland, Lapland, Alaska, and Canada. The southern lights can be seen in Tasmania, Antarctica, and Patagonia.
Iceland is definitely the perfect place to see them. There are spectacular landscapes such as glacier lagoons, iconic waterfalls, or picturesque fjords. Iceland’s strength lies in its small population, which means that there is nature everywhere and only a few artificial light sources. The ring road runs once around the country, which is ideal for searching for the best observation spot along the coast. As Reykjavík is the northernmost capital on earth, it allows visitors who only stay in the city for a few days to see the Northern Lights. However, it is essential to move away from the street lights to better see the colorful lights. The Grotta lighthouse at the western end of the city is a popular observation point.
THE BEST TIME TO SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland during the year is between September and April. They occur all year round, but winter is definitely the best time to see them due to less light pollution. In fact, it doesn’t really get dark in Iceland during the summer. Sometimes the sun doesn’t even set, making it impossible to see the auroras.
