Everyone has heard of Iceland’s dramatic nature - glaciers right next to active volcanoes, bubbling geysers and hot springs, black lava beaches and the graceful dancing Northern Lights every visitor secretly hopes to see.
Found dancing in the skies above the land of fire and ice, the Northern Lights are one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders. They look like magic and, when witnessed in person, can feel even more special. In winter, Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see this majestic natural phenomenon.
