The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.
The experience of seeing the Northern Lights dancing in the sky is an experience no one ever forgets! On this Private Super Jeep tour we drive out into the darkness for a unique experience in search of the incredible light show by Aurora Borealis. The lake Mývatn area sometimes referred to as the capital of Northern lights is a great spot to see the Aurora Borealis because of the frequency of sightings and also because there is a vast wilderness with minimal light pollution.
