It´s now 19:48, and the lights are already "on"
Find a high point, or somewhere you can see towards the north like Mýrdalssandur area.
Thanks for this, we went to the lighthouse for around 4 hours, and saw them.
Tonight (for 3 nights) we stay in Thingvellir National Park.....any advice?!
Snap, the exact same thing happened to us on 4th December. We were checking both Vedur and GI Institute We were lucky to experience the Northern Lights around approx. 8.30pm for a few hours but then they died down again. Looked better in hubbies photos than to the naked eye. It's an excuse to go back again as didn't see the 'dancing spectacular' lights that we hoped for! Enjoy the rest of your trip, we came home on 5th!
Lisa 'looked better in hubbies photos, than to the naked eye' I had heard that was sometimes the case. You seemed to have enjoyed it whatever you were able to achieve..Edited: 08 December 2013, 21:53
It pays off in the end to do the tours with the experts.
Most companies cancelled their tours last Saturday, but the Emperor of the Northern Lights still delivered:
Must ask someone about this 'Emperor' person.Edited: 09 December 2013, 22:32
