Where to go to catch the Northern Lights in Reykjavík

  • Grótta Island Lighthouse, Seltjarnarnes, Iceland

    Grótta lighthouse is the most popular spot for northern lights hunters in Reykjavík. It is located on the edge of Seltjarnarnes peninsula. Surrounded by the sea, there is no light pollution here! (Except for the lighthouse itself, but it does not really matter I think).. There is even tiny-teeny hot pot on the seacoast. Even though it's really just a footbath, it's still amazing!
