Will we see the Northern lights?

Unfortunately, there is no 100% guarantee of spotting the Northern Lights. It's a natural phenomenon depending on many factors. However, being in the right place at the right time can help, and the guides are doing their best to help you to see this wonder.

When is the best time to see the Northen Lights?

The best time is from from late September to late March/ early April. During this time, the Arctic sky is dark enough for the Northern Lights to be visible in the right conditions.

What to wear in Iceland in winter?

Dress in layers, ideally wool, waterproof and windproof outer layer, thermal underwear is a must.Watergroof gloves, winter hat and a scarf.

What are the best places to see the Northen Lights?

The best places to see the Northen Lights are outskirts of the town in the countryside where it is dark enough, with as little as possible light pollution.

testimonials
Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you did for Peggy & I for our unescorted trip to Sweden & Norway. The hotels were all very, very comfortable and a perfect location for our traveling by train. The staff @ Freys hotel in Stockholm was exceptionally helpful and friendly- we highly recommend all the hotels you picked. The Sorgneford in a nutshell trip was spectacular AND, we even had good weather! We had a wonderful time, thank YOU! - BB -
