According to the weather forecast of the Icelandic Met Office, tonight might be a good night to spot northern lights in Iceland. The forecast says the probability of seeing aurora today is 7 on a scale from 0 to 10.

Icelanders love Easter and particularly the part where chocolate is involved. As always, to keep supporting our journalism and getting some sweet perks, join our High Five Club today.

Unfortunately, the forecast also says there will be clouds over most of the country tonight, but we advise you to keep an eye on the night sky. A clear sky is forecasted in the Reykjavík area around 22:00.

What are the best places for aurora spotting? We did a whole Best of Reykjavík guide on this! The area between Ægissíða to Grótta is considered very good, but there are plenty of other places to choose from, depending on where you live. See the guide here.
