Iceland / Northern Lights ?
« on: January 02, 2017, 22:37:52 PM »
Mrs Bez was expressed a strong interest in seeing the Northern Lights for more years than I care to remember....this may be the year!

Has anyone been to Iceland on an Aurora hunt ?

Is Iceland worthy of 7 nights ? or can it be "done" in less

Opinions please

Wife going for her 50th on the 27th Jan with 2 of her pals...

I'd say a week would be great to travel around...

My Brother went there on his honeymoon as well, I think...

I'm taking my chance in Scotland in March, no guarantee of seeing them by travelling significantly north due to unpredictable weather/cloud.... good luck tho, Iceland looks fascinating

We went to Northern Finland on a similar quest for a week a couple of years back.
Unfortunately it is all down to luck - clear night skies and lots of Solar Activity. Also take a decent camera and tripod, warm clothes, hip flask and head torch. We stood for 3 hours on a frozen lake and were duly rewarded one night with a minor showing.
