The Northern Lights are expected to be extra vibrant in 2024 due to the solar cycle’s peak. Every 11 years, the sun goes through a cycle of increased and decreased activity. During the peak, the sun releases more solar flares and coronal mass ejections, resulting in more intense and frequent displays of the Northern Lights. This year, the solar cycle will reach its maximum, making it an ideal time to see the colorful Aurora Borealis in Iceland.
