There is growing thought among the solar scientific community that the Sun isn’t behaving in what we’ve come to perceive as “normal.” This new low solar activity means that the days of grand aurora displays over the lower 48 American states, southern Canada, and Europe … are at least temporarily gone. Seeing the aurora has become a truly rare and unusual sight. This means if travelers want to see the northern lights, they now have to travel to where the lights still dance — to Iceland!
The stunning, stark beauty of Iceland – its volcanoes, geysers, soothing hot springs, and majestic waterfalls – along with the culture and friendliness of the Icelandic people create the perfect backdrop for our annual aurora borealis viewing journey. Days are spent with our expert local guide exploring the scenic natural wonders and learning of the very unique ancient and modern cultures of Iceland. By night, in the darkness of the new Moon, we’ll stand watch for the amazing Aurora Borealis from our beautiful lodge in the remote countryside.
