I have been chasing the Northern Lights in Iceland for many years, and running this site for the fifth season in a row now. Here you can find forecasts, information and book northern lights tours.
Activity for October 16th: Aurora activity 4/9 on the Kp-index tonight. Solar storm is likely to spark some impressive aurora.
Clouds for October 16th: Mostly clear skies are predicted over most of the country tonight. Some clouds might block the view close to the ocean on the South Coast, but moving from the ocean should get you away from those clouds.
Overall forecast for October 16th: There is a really good chance you can see the aurora in Iceland tonight. Make sure you book your tour on this page to support the forecasting service.
There is a huge variety of Northern Lights tours available from Reykjavik. Here you can find a couple of tours I have picked out as tours that I can recommend.
These are my own personal tours. Operated by demand I will do my best to guarantee that you will see the aurora.
Aurora Sightings can not always be guaranteed, so why not mix it up with glacier hike, lobster dinner or other fun activities?
The cheapest way to get on an aurora tour is to go on a bus tour. Guaranteed departures when aurora sightings are likely.
I have years of experience photographing the aurora, and you can book your aurora photography adventure with me here.
