Arguably the planets most spectacular light show, witnessing the Northern Lights dancing magically across the sky is an experience worthy of everyone’s bucket list.

Visible from Canada, Norway, Sweden and Finland, it’s Iceland that is often regarded as one of the best places in the world to see this kaleidoscope of colours twist and turn through the night sky, in fact, it is one of the most popular reasons people choose to visit in the winter. A stunning, natural phenomenon of greens, pinks, purples and white flashing overhead, they are of course also incredibly elusive and unpredictable, making the experience even more enticing to so many.

On a clear, crisp winters night, seeing this magnificent display is nothing short of amazing, with each viewing entirely unique.

Although the Northern Lights are “active” all year round, they can be viewed best from September to mid-April, with the darkest of nights falling between November and February. For the best viewing opportunities, head out to the less populated areas – some hotels even offer a “wake-up” service, ensuring even if you retire for the evening, you won’t miss the show!

There are many ways you can see the lights, on foot, as part of a self-drive holiday, on a boat or of course with an experienced guide. Our favourite? Snuggle up in your private Aurora glass igloo and watch the hypnotic dance from the comfort of your warm and comfy bed.

Wherever you choose to visit in the hope of witnessing this enchanting display, you can be sure of a magical winter holiday. In the day, visit volcanoes, spend the afternoon dogsledding or embark on a reindeer safari! These countries offer an abundance of adventure and one-of-a-kind experiences – should you be lucky enough to see the magic of the Northern Lights just once during your time there, that’s the cherry on top of the cake!
