The aurora is notoriously unpredictable but is most often seen between 9pm and 4am, so be prepared for some late nights and above all, do be patient.

Fly by small turbo propeller plane to Akureyri in the north of the country. Akureyri, the capital of the north, is the second largest city in Iceland and sits amidst scenic mountains.
