The 'Northern Lights', or Aurora Borealis appear on regular bases in Iceland.  Although this magnificent phenomenon in the sky can bee seen in Reykjavík, it is always better to go outside the city.  To a dark place where city lights don’t disturb the experience. It is also interesting to travel to a beautiful place like Þingvellir or Jökulsárlón to enhance the experience if you want to spend more time on the experience.  Sometimes the Northern Lights can turn on an incredible show with powerful movements and color changes.  Yesterday evening was a great night to view the Northern Lights in Iceland, specifically around the Reykjavík area.  The show lasted for hours with spectacular lights of many colors moving and changing the mood around the sky.    A perfect place to see the Northern Lights around the Reykjavík area is Hvaleyrarvatn or Kjalarnes where these photos are taken.
