Northern lights Hunt
Brennivin Icelandic snaps
If you wish to join a northern light hunt with me you are in good hands. Finding the northern lights is one of my expertise and I have great knowledge of them and to predict the strength and likelihood of what we will see. Although the outcome is still in the hands of mother nature and nothing can be promised. I will be upfront and honest about the likelihood of seeing them on any given night, for you to cancel or go under my suggestions. I am as well capable of taking pictures of you with the lights that you can bring home to show your families and friends.
The visibility of the Northern lights is dependent on weather, such as cloud coverage and activity of the lights. Pre-briefing will be held 3 hours before departure, where I will explain our chances and what to expect. In accordance with the briefing, you can go one with the tour or schedule for another night. Pre briefing will be sent by Email after the last update on cloud cover shortly after 18:00. Expectations are different by people and the Northern lights vary a lot from being a marvelous display to being faint and only visible to a camera for example. You can read my blog about how I examine the various data that will determine the strength of the northern lights here https://www.icethor.is/post/how-to-read-aurora-forecast
