The first item on our list of things to see in Iceland was the Northern Lights. Solar activity was high. The Aurora Borealis was active! As luck would have it there were hurricanes before our trip, and they were probably a cause of the excessively overcast skies we had each day – and night. Got to have dark and clear skies and solar activity to get to view the Lights.
Catching the Lights will be first on our list of things to see next time we visit.
