Have just got back from my North Iceland Aurora Challenge on Friday. It was a fabulous trip and was worth the wait! We saw the aurora on 5 nights (4 of them were major displays). At Lake Myvatn, the aurora display lasted hours and cast reflections on the lake. I took almost 1500 aurora photos and nearly that on the daytime tour. Our driver/guide was Pétur who we had two years ago, and he did an excellent tour.
I really think Iceland is an excellent place to see the aurora … now I have had 2 successfully trips with bright auroral on both tours (North and south Iceland). I am looking at the brochure now, and thinking about doing a tour for next year.
Attached is a photo that I took at Mývatn
