Iceland is well known for its natural wonders and the Northern Lights are certainly one of them, and WOW Air’s new “WOWBOREALIS” promotion is making taking photographs of the spectacle more affordable than ever.
WOW Air is offering travellers the opportunity to witness the spectacle in person with a 20% discount with the promo code “WOWBOREALIS.” The offer code is valid for flights out of both Toronto and Montreal and valid on flights booked between Aug. 31 and Sept. 4 for travel Sept. 10 to March 3, 2018.
The following are some tricks and tips to capture successful shots of this natural phenomenon as told by Ao Thor, professional Icelandic photographer: pick the right time of the year, the nights are pleasant and long from November to February and are less cloudy from December and February; check the Northern Lights forecast before setting off; if possible, set the camera on timer as 10 seconds of the Northern Lights is plenty. A tripod and a cable release are a must; the wider the lens, the better the results. A 14 mm lens is ideal and don’t use filters.
