On clear, cold winter nights, the Aurora Borealis puts on an otherworldly show in the dark sky above Reykjavik. Swirling mint green and milky blue, the Northern Lights are the result of the upper atmosphere being blitzed by electronically charged particles from the sun. Hunt the elusive lights down in Thingvellir National Park, book a midnight harbor tour, or simply enjoy an evening dip in one of the many famed geothermal pools. Just prepare to come to your own conclusion about what makes this phenomenon happen -- magic!
