The northern lights can also be explained by the ingress of particles of sunlight into the earth's magnetic field.
The result is unchanged - the night sky seems to glow from the inside and shimmer with green, purple and pink lights.
Previously, you could see the Northern Lights directly from Reykjavik, but today this is prevented by city lights. Therefore, we must go.
Go hunting - leave behind the city and rush to where there are no lanterns and the northern moon shines. The probability of the northern lights is calculated on a nine-point scale - if the forecast is two points or more, we declare a hunt.
You will be met by experienced guides who will accompany you throughout the excursion through snow, lava fields and glowing skies.
For a better understanding of what the Northern Lights are and where they come from, before the tour we recommend visiting the Northern Lights Museum to learn in detail how the science explains this phenomenon and watch a video of footage of the Northern Lights in different parts of Iceland.
And then head out into the night: in the pale moonlight, the snowy landscapes seem mystical.
The guide tells stories and looks up at the sky for the green lane.
A bonus to the tour is hot chocolate and Icelandic Reyka vodka, the most environmentally friendly in the world, to keep the hunters strong.
Imagine suddenly the guide stops the car, and here it is: streaks of aurora shimmer, rolling across the night sky. The armor of the Valkyries shines. In the heavenly Valhalla, a feast is a mountain.
We cannot guarantee the northern lights, but we promise that the hunt will not be boring.
