Aurora at Mývatn

Apr 20, 2017

Gleðilegt sumar! Today we celebrate the first day of summer in Iceland – with freezing temperatures below zero, blizzards and strong winds. Arctic summer feeling 🙂

But the forecast showed some open spots in the very far North, so we jumped in the car and head 480 km from Reykjavik to Lake Myvatn – one of the most stunning areas in Iceland.

And Lady Aurora didn´t disappoint us; right after midnight she started her dance and showed us some displays in her most beautiful colours.
