The Northern Lights in Iceland

November 9, 2014 — 3 Comments

One year ago we were returning from our around the world trip – five continents and 25 countries over 9 months of travels. We saw some incredible things along the way, but the most incredible event came two nights before we came home. I’ll probably write a post about what it’s like a full year after returning, but for now, I’ll let you enjoy the pictures the we took while experiencing the Northern Lights in Iceland.

They started as a faint green line across the sky – so faint that you could hardly see it with the naked eye. After I noticed some green in the picture I took outside the hotel, I grabbed Jocelyn and we headed out to find a good place. We then waited for about an hour before it really started happening.

Then the magic of the Northern Lights really started happening as they started dancing across the sky – something even the imagination has a hard time conjuring up.

It’s something we’ll never forget, and it was the most incredible way to end our trip.

  1. Wow the pictures are incredible and I’m quite positive they don’t do it justice to the scene. In person it must have been amazing!
