3 Factors to be Considered When Hunting for the Northern Lights

small group tours to IcelandWe recently returned from doing two small group tours to Iceland and the Northern Lights.  We do a wonderful small group tour to Iceland where we see volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, black sand beaches, and many waterfalls,  But the highlight (pun intended) is when we go out at night to hunt down the dramatic but sometimes elusive Northern Lights. In this blog post, The Traveling Professor gives his best tips for going down and tracking down the amazing light show presented by Mother Nature herself.

We're Off to Iceland

Northern Lights Tour

small group tour iceland and northern lightsOn Tuesday I board an Icelandair flight from Boston to Reykjavik, Iceland.  We will meet 13 travelers there for a small group tour of Iceland and the Northern Lights.  Although I have been to Iceland several times, never for the Northern Lights.  We hope Mother Nature cooperates and gives us some cloud-less days.  I've also been answering a lot of questions on Iceland, mainly about how cold it will be.  I'm anticipating temps in the 30's and maybe the 40'.  Take a look at our blog post to see what will be going on on our small group tour to Iceland and the Northern Lights.
