  • When is the best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland?

During this period, the nights are longer, and the skies are darker, providing ideal conditions for observing the aurora borealis. The optimal months for sightings are typically October, November, February, and March when the nights are darkest. Remember that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and sightings can never be guaranteed. Clear skies and minimal light pollution are necessary for the best viewing opportunities, so consider venturing outside urban areas to increase your chances of witnessing this spectacular display.
