The Northern Lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are a natural light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions (around the Arctic and Antarctic). These lights are caused by charged particles from the sun colliding with atoms in the Earth's atmosphere. The collision excites the atoms, causing them to emit light in various colors, including green, pink, yellow, blue, purple, and red. The Northern Lights can be seen in the night sky, typically during the winter months. The best time to see them is during a period of high solar activity, known as the solar maximum. The Northern Lights have fascinated people for centuries and continue to be a popular tourist destination for those looking to witness this stunning natural phenomenon.
Iceland has become one of the first countries in the world to re open its doors to vaccinated passengers from anywhere in the world, and the first country in the EU/Schengen area to do so. It means that Americans (but not only) who have been fully vaccinated (2 injections), can head to Iceland from Thursday 18 March 2021, one year after most of Europe was closed to third party countries.
