Skies Covered in Colours - Reykjavik Excursions
Reykjavik Excursions takes you to the Northern Lights’ Late Night Dance
As summer gives way to autumn, the season’s changes are immediately apparent as the grass turns golden, then brown and the leaves start to fall. Visitors to Iceland during autumn, winter and spring are then rewarded with an extra bonus. These months are generally much milder than in other northern European countries or North America and the beauty of the nature is enhanced by spectacular displays in the skies.
After the sun has gone down and the days get shorter, the stage is set for the appearance of the enigmatic Northern Lights that sweep across the sky in spectacular displays that can last for hours.
Many a visitor comes to Iceland to enjoy this phenomenon in the heavens. Every night is different and you never know what it will bring. The appearance of the Northern Lights is something that has to be experienced in person to grasp the majesty and beauty that artists and photographers try to capture. Nonetheless, a camera can capture even more of the richness of the colour and beauty, even if they can’t capture the experience, so don’t forget to take one.
Reykjavik Excursions run regular nightly excursions lasting from 2½ to 3 hours in length. Starting at 10 pm in the autumn (15th Sept-15th Oct) and spring (15th March-15th April) or 9 pm from 16th Oct-14th March, the tour’s destination varies, depending on the weather and where the conditions are most likely to be optimal. The weather has to generally be cold for them to appear at their best, so bear that in mind when choosing your clothing for the trip. They seek out the sites where the best displays are most likely to occur beforehand, though naturally, the Aurora Borealis don’t appear on demand!
 Should you go on a tour where they don’t appear, you can join a tour another night again free of charge, as the company really want you to enjoy this experience.
 A guide provides commentary, counsel and background in English on each of the trips, so you’ll get the most out of this special night tour.
To see pictures is one thing but to be there when the sky is filled with colour and light is quite another.
