The best months to see the Northern Lights are February, March, April, October, and November. The Northern Lights are one of the most beautiful natural phenomena on Earth. The dancing curtains are magical and once you’ve seen it you want more. I have already been hunting for the light several times. And I continue to be amazed by the colours, the shapes, and its beauty.

Especially after seeing this video. Icelander Oli Haukur Myrdal starts kayaking and surfing the moment the Northern Lights appear in the sky in Iceland. He also sets out on a full moon. Which results in this unprecedented footage.

Watch the video on kayaking and surfing with the Northern Lights:

I have seen the Northern Lights several times. Sometimes by coincidence, but often also on excursions where you go out with a guide.
