Have you ever seen the northern lights? We can see them pretty often here in Iceland.

The aurora borealis season is from mid-September to mid-April. You need to check the weather forecast, make sure the sky isn't cloudy, and find a spot far away from the light pollution.

Then, as in fishing, patience plays a significant role. And sometimes, it pays off!

Fortunately, when we cannot fish in the winter, we can still enjoy Iceland´s beautiful landscape.

January days are short, the sun rises around 11 AM and sets around 5 PM, which gives us 5 hours of daylight.

However, there´s hardly a better view than an erupting geyser in the winter sun.
