1. Witness the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

With its brilliant spectrum of psychedelic colours, the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, is something all travellers clamour to catch a glimpse of. But how does one track down the elusive phenomenon? In Iceland, catching sight of the Northern Lights can be done quite easily as they are reportedly visible for eight months a year. Between early September to the end of April, you are likely to see some aurora activity, depending on the weather, the solar activity, and if Lady Luck is on your side. There are multiple Icelandic locations you can head to for the Northern Lights. The best place is by Grótta lighthouse, on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula, where there is little light-pollution along this stretch on clear nights with a good forecast. There’s also Reykjavík – a spread out city with many parks.
