The entry doesn´t go much into detail, but it sounds pretty much exactly like it is in The Witcher 2:
"In reality, the "Wild Hunt" were not spectres at all, but an elven cavalry lead by Eredin Bréacc Glas and known as the Dearg Ruadhri, or "Red horsemen" in Elder Speech."

"Eredin Bréacc Glas is an elf and leader of an elven cavalry known as the Dearg Ruadhri, or "Red horsemen". He killed Auberon Muircetach, mostly likely unwittingly. He and Avallac'h, another elf were the true rulers of the Aen Elle."

"The Aen Elle are elves who inhabit another world, unlike the Aen Seidhe who came to the Continent on their white ships before the humans appeared."

The only difference is that wiki doesn´t explicitly state whether "another world" is another dimension or not, but given Wild Hunt´s properties and the fact multidimensionality is part of the lore (Conjunction of Spheres and such), the explanation in The Witcher 2 seems to be in accordance with the novels.

But I haven´t read the newer novels (just short stories and the first part of the saga about 15 years ago ). Have you?
