After catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights from our Hotel we decided the next morning to book The Aurora Tour for that evening. Our guide-'Clint' (being English we didn't stand a chance of pronouncing his Icelandic name!) arrived to collect us from the hotel at 7.45pm as arranged. Filled with anticipation-it was a beautiful cloudless sky full of stars-and entertained by Clint's tales of life on the Island we arrived at our destination which was in the middle of a very dark field away from all light pollution.. We were joined by Clint's father and 4 more tourists in another jeep. Fueled by flasks of hot choc and coffee we were rewarded with the most awesome display-an 8 out of 10 on the scale Clint said! We did not know at the time but a coronal mass ejection had been hurled from the sun 3 days earlier. Thanks to Clint's expert knowledge of the area we had witnessed the display from the perfect position.
