Now’s The Time To Visit The Northern Lights!

From glistening fjords to beautiful glacier-cut valleys, Iceland already has so much to offer in terms of natural beauty. But nothing compares to the breathtaking natural light display known as the northern lights.

If you’ve always wanted to see the northern lights, now’s your chance! The latest prediction concerning the lights will surely have you booking your flight. NASA predicted that this year’s northern lights will be at their most intense in over a decade!

How intense are we talking? According to the NASA website, “Forecasters say Solar Max is due in the year 2013. When it arrives, the peak of the 11-year sunspot cycle will bring more solar flares, more coronal mass ejections, more geomagnetic storms and more auroras than we have experienced in quite some time.”

To top it off, Icelandair is offering packages to experience the northern lights starting at only $689 per person! Icelandair’s Blue Lagoon & Northern Lights package includes roundtrip airfare on Icelandair, a three night hotel stay and an exclusive boat trip to search for the northern lights.

More information about this and other northern lights packages from Icelandair can be found here. Book your trip soon for what will surely be an experience to remember!
