The Northern Lights Each year, during the wintermonths, travellers journey to Iceland and venture out into the dark to see the magical but elusive northern lights (aurora borealis). This natural phenomenon is the product of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere; the results are spectacular! Streaks of colourful light appear across the sky. The colours can vary from white to pink or purple and, most commonly, green. It is known that the best me to witness thelights in Iceland is from lateSeptember to mid-April, when the nights are the longest. This light show is truly dazzling and worth the pursuit.
