When you book an Iceland Northern Lights tour you will most likely have a good idea of the natural climate and landscape you will experience, even if you have never visited the country before. This might include a snowy, rugged landscape, a dark sky, icy lakes, crashing waterfalls.
You will also expect it to be cold, which it will be, and quite probably snowing at some point, but you may also be lucky enough to have a day or two when there is no cloud, just pale winter sunshine in a pure blue sky. Due to the high northern latitude at which Iceland is situated, the sun barely rises above the horizon during the daytime in December, and in consequence the light has a beautiful blue “evening” quality about it all day.
The snowy landscape, bathed in this light, gives a winter wonderland appearance which is indeed a treat for those who have the fortune to be there at the right time. Of course clear skies in the day are great, but when visiting Iceland to see the Northern Lights, a cloudless sky at night is of even greater importance. Due to the variability in the country’s weather, there is a chance you will be lucky with the night sky too. Travelling with a specialist Northern Lights tour operator such as Explorers Astronomy Tours is not only a good way of seeing the Northern Lights at night, but also the country by day too.
