The Northern Lights also known as the Aurora Borealis are caused when energetic particles and atoms collide in the thermosphere. The charged particles are directed by the Earths magnetic field and that is why they can be seen most vividly within the arctic circle. Green World Holidays organizes Northern Lights tours and city breaks in both Iceland and Norway. We are a tailor-made specialist and so can provide you with many ideas and options.
From chasing the Northern Lights by dog sleigh or snow mobile or chilling out in glass igloos under the stars we are sure to provide the perfect option for you. The best time of year to see the Northern Lights is from October until March. It is very hard to describe the feeling and sensation of seeing the Northern Lights; the closest we have come to a reasonable description is “privileged and uncontrollably excited!” These dancing forms are always different and this uniqueness is part of their allure.
