Nacreous clouds above Lake Myvatn, February 2018

Back to back North Iceland tours

8th February, 2018. We have just guided (and Charlotte also cooked for) two groups of guests from around the world for two Wild Photography Holidays tours based at Dimmuborgir, Myvatn. Although neither group witnessed the northern lights (a combination of low activity and cloud cover) we did have some of the best snow conditions we’ve so far experienced in the country, with much lower temperatures than normal. The second last evening also saw the best display of nacreous, or polar stratospheric, clouds I’ve seen in 25 years, which delighted the second group. A couple of big storms during our stay made things more difficult than usual – but also for some fascinating conditions. And frankly, I’ve experienced just as bad in Scotland.
