The Northern Lights

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are collisions between electrically charged particles from our sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. Auroral displays appear in different colours, usually green and pink. If lucky, you find shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet colours.

Aurora Borealis

An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity. The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere. Proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes.

"We took three tours"

We took the Norther Lights, Golden Circle and South Coast Tours. All were great! It’s easy, convienient and th3 guides are knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend .

"Awesome"

Having carefully researched and read the reviews of this trip, we booked and were so glad we did. The tour was well structured with plenty of time at each attraction (45 mins to 1hr at each). There were also refreshment and comfort breaks along the way. The coaches were very comfortable with WiFi and a USB charger point at each seat. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and definitely enhanced the experience.

"An amazing experience!"

From pick up from our hotel to being dropped back at our hotel around 8 hours later, we had the most fabulous Iceland experience. Our tour guide was excellent, funny and engaging throughout...not overbearing but gave us all we needed. You get an interactive tablet (so bring headphones) that had a map and information as you drove along- excellent way of getting information as you could choose from a wide variety of languages. The map was GPS linked so as you drove the tablet automatically started to tell you information relevant to your position on the tour.
