LYR is not a good place if your primary objective is the NL, it's too far north.

That trip happened last March, see here.
What would you recommend for the lights? And is there anything to do in LYR aside from making a check on the list?

What I want is A. Northern lights
B. LYR, have a weird appeal for that place.
The other places are just the most realistic stops to get there.

So go to LYR and if you don't luck out with the NL plan a NL trip to KEF.

What time of the year is this for?

Lol

I guess I'm not that good at being spontaneous.

So maybe we'll stick to our GVA trip and do KEF for the lights?

Doesn't mean you can't go.
It means go speak to your LOR.

I was in KEF in NOV time we went 2 nights with guided tours  looking for the NL saw nothing, highly recommend TOS or the Lofoten Islands.
