Auroras in Iceland

Auroras in Iceland

Ways to experience the northern lights become more varied every year – one of the most intimate is a wilderness cabin in Iceland where guests are far enough away from bright lights to see any auroras to maximum effect.

A trip there with specialist operator Aurora Nights includes three evenings in which the lights may put in an appearance, and the offer of a wake-up call should they show up after bed time. The cabin has views of Eyjafjallajökull – the volcano that closed much of European airspace in 2010, and whose name most newsreaders shied away from trying to pronounce (for the record, it sounds something like ‘Eh-ya-fyat-la-yer- kootl’).

Daytime activities include an optional tour of the (currently inactive) volcano, as well as trips to the Gullfoss waterfall, the Strokkur geyser and a concluding soak in the photogenic Blue Lagoon.
