The Aurora Borealis is visible from all of Iceland IN THE WINTER TIME only. In the summer we have daylight 24 / 7 for about 6 weeks and you can not see the Aurora in daylight – you need darkness for them to shine and dance. Coming here in the winter does not guarantee anything though, the conditions must be right for the Aurora to put on a show – It is kind of like chasing the rainbow… Hard to know but magical WHEN you get it!​
