Report from Eldey: The night started as always from the Old Harbour and with a beautiful clear sky we headed out in the search for the northern lights. We barely left Reykjaviks city lights when the first sign of the northern lights started to appear. We could easily see a green arch in the camera and soon enough we could also see a faint green arch stretching from the north just above Mt Esja to the west. We waited with patient and our patient payed of, we got a beautiful show by the northern lights tonight. People were pointing at almost all direction it was in front of us, to the left and to the right at the same time. The lights got stronger and stronger and we were even so lucky to have amazing dancing lights just above us moving like a river, showing us how magical it can be, We are always happy to show our passengers what norhtern lights can be like and to have it from the start of the tour, during and all the way back to Reykjavik is amazing. This is a night we will remember and I hope we gave some people memories for life tonight.
