Ten days in to our twelve day trip and only a faint momentary glimpse of the northern lights at Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, I was getting anxious that despite bearing the cold on my own till’ the early hours of each morning that this trip would not produce the auroral display that I had hoped for. Fortunately on our tenth night at the excellent Hestasport Cottages we were treated to the longest and most vivid display I have seen to date. This is a lucky location for us as it was about the only place that we got a show on our previous trip too.
