Northern Lights Season Begins Early in Iceland

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - Mother Nature's greatest spectacle, the Northern Lights, have made an earlier return than predicted as summer turns into winter in Iceland. This premature lights show has shown a bigger interest in Northern Lights tours than previously expected amongst Iceland's tourism sector.

As the days get shorter and nights get darker, the Northern Lights season in Iceland begins with full force. Iceland's location just below the Arctic Circle is the perfect destination to experience the natural light displays of the Aurora Borealis, as they occur most frequently in the Polar Regions, centered within a 2500 km radius of the geomagnetic pole.

Iceland's only budget airline WOW air is offering travellers the chance to experience the Northern Lights up-close-and-personal with its Northern Lights package deal. As part of the deal, travellers are offered return flights from London Gatwick Airport, four nights hotel accommodation, and an unforgettable Northern Lights tour.

Travellers can expect every Northern Lights tour to be different, as the location will vary in order to get the best viewing opportunity. Passengers are picked up at their hotel and driven to an area outside of Reykjavík to search for the elusive light show. The tour generally lasts between three to five hours, and makes for an incredible night of exploring the rugged Icelandic wilderness.

WOW air offers flights to Iceland to and from London Gatwick Airport all year round.
