Discover the real Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights

Tourists also come to Iceland in the darkest months to observe the uncanny light show of the Northern Lights which flashes, flickers and pulses across the winter sky like fireworks.

The Vikings believed it was the Valkyries riding across the sky. Today we know the lights are caused by streams of charged particles, which flare into space coming from the solar wind on the sun. 

During the summer, it is also possible to explore the Midnight Sun. It is only above the Arctic Circle that the Midnight Sun occurs. Here the sun never dips below the horizon. In combination with a self-drive holiday or horse ride holiday, the long days with the Midnight Sun gets unforgettable.
