Northern Lights Safety in Iceland

21. August, 2018

Autumn is coming which means that northern lights (aurora borealis) viewing season has arrived in Iceland. In this article Safetravel will advise you on how to view the northern lights while keeping your safety and the safety of others in mind.

The best time to see the northern lights in Iceland is on a dark clear night. Although you will be excited to see the northern lights if you are driving keep the following in mind:

  • Keep your eyes on the road at all times
  • Do not stop your vehicle in the middle of the road
  • Park in designated turn off areas only
  • NEVER exit your vehicle or walk onto the road without first looking for cars

If you want to keep all your focus on the northern lights we suggest you book a tour so that you can enjoy the experience stress free.
