Video: Group of friends from Paris circle Iceland in a camper van, hunting for the aurora

By Staff

  • On the road A group of Paris students came to Iceland to hunt for the Northern lights and found plenty of empty roads, waterfalls and rainbows. Photo/screenshot from video, see below.

One of the most popular ways to explore Iceland is to drive the ring road, and a great way to do that is to rent a camper. This is what a group of friends from Paris did earlier this fall. Originally the group came to Iceland to hunt for the Northern lights, but ended up finding countless waterfalls, adventure and desolate beauty. And of course the Northern lights as well!

The group documented their trip and all the beautiful sights they encountered on their trip, proving that you don't need to venture deep into the highlands to experience the magic of Icelandic nature. It is all easily accessible from the ring road!

If you plan on travelling around Iceland in a camper van this winter you should check out this interactive map compiled by Visit Iceland, showing the year-round campsites which have facilities for campers.
