Icelandic Northern Lights Spectacle [image details]


A friend in London recently suggested that we make a trip to Iceland to view the Northern Lights (aurora borealis). Iceland is only less than three hours by air from London and would make an interesting holiday destination before we finally return home to Singapore in the middle of this year. CY did all the homework planning for the trip, including searching for the best tours to join on the internet. The Northern Lights can be a very elusive target for many travellers to Iceland. How lucky we were to travel to Iceland just in the midst of a solar storm. Even then, it took us two nights to see the display because of snowy and extremely windy conditions in Iceland. Credit to our tour guide for bringing us to the right spot at the right time!
