The spectacle of Aurora Borealis requires dark and partly clear skies.
Cloud cover forecast is given for the next few days, in maps where WHITE means clear skies. Additionally, a text forecast above the map may clarify where in Iceland clear or partly clear skies are most likely. Move the slider below the cloud cover maps, or click directly on a day or time.
The information on the page will update accordingly, see the small frames above and to the right: Aurora forecast shows expected activity at your selected date. Even grade 2 (low activity) can be beautiful and grade 3 (moderate) can be dazzling.
The timing of sunset, darkness, sunrise and moonrise are are valid for Reykjavík but only approximate for other areas.
