Northern Lights Hunt

The Northern Lights Exploration tour is a small group Northern Lights hunt experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of colour, light and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic. You will 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. Duration is about 2.5 - 3 hours.

Overnight stay in Akureyri for 3 nights at a 3 star hotel, including breakfast.
