Night Fire over Vestrahorn

November 17, 2016

The Northern Lights flowing over Vestrahorn and the black-sand dunes.

On our second night in Iceland we were rewarded with another incredible show of #aurora while on the road near Höfn. After looking at the forecast we decided to try our luck at Vestrahorn. When we arrived the sky was completely cloudy over the mountain and the clear areas we could see didn't have any aurora. After an hour or so of waiting the clouds cleared and the light show kicked off again; we were beyond thrilled with our luck! Soon the sun started to rise and the lights faded, but we had another amazing night in books.

Thanks Rex! I was definitely fortunate to be there at the right time!
