Natural Wonders of Iceland

Chasing the Northern Lights (aurora borealis)

After a lovely Icelandic dinner comprised of roasted lamb and salmon with dill sauce and potatoes, we took off into the night sky to try to catch the nortern lights. 

It is a bit like a ghost chase to be honest. Even in sparsely populated Iceland it is a challenge to find a dark spot without lhyman made light pollution. We are also hampered a bit but the near full moon illuminating the night sky. 

Nevertheless, we eventually found a spot and got to witness this natural phenomenon live and in person. It is hard to describe the experience in words. One has to see it in person and our group had the chance to do it tonight.

  1. That first picture is particularly exciting, although I’m sure the whole evening was a thrill. From every corner, you are taking me on a vicarious journey of the wonders of the world. Thank you!
