Video of Northern Lights and Stars in Iceland. Not to be Missed

northernlights-breiddalsvik_psMany come to Iceland for the amazing northern lights. Sometimes you are lucky to see them, sometimes not. Amateur photographer Ásgeir Ingvarsson took more than 6.500 photos of the sky over Reykjavík and made a video of the nights in the vicinity of Reykjavík.

Ingvarsson said in an interview with that many of his photos were taken in Reykjanes (the Keflavík area), Hvalfjördur and Thingvellir. The lighthouse at Grótta by Reykjavík is also great.

“I had the idea in December and I wish I had got it a bit earlier since a lot of nights have been cloudy since then. But I used the nights when some stars could be seen and the northern lights were active.”

Many tourists come to Iceland in winter to see the northern light and some hotels even specialize in such tours. But you can never be sure so watch Ingvarson’s amazing video, an be sure to enlarge it to full screen.
