The next maximum solar activity will be in 2013 and 2014 so these years are expected to be a great years for Northern Lights displays in Iceland. The following two to three years after that will also offer frequent displays. This means that increased activity can be expected in the next few years. The best season to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is from September until March. The Northern Lights can not be seen in Iceland during summer since it is simply not dark enough. In mid summer it does not get dark at all. www.Tour.is offer special Northern Lights tours during winter.
