Northern Lights Exploration from Akureyri

Northern Lights Exploration from Akureyri

star-5

The Northern Lights Tour is a hunting experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light, and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic. We begin our Northern Lights hunt with a drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky in the best possible situation, of course depending on the weather. The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light is caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap. Our goal is not only to find the right sights for the best photograph but also to take our time to enjoy this fragile single moment that will never come again but you might remember for the rest of your life.
