Northern Lights Akureyri

Frozen Night, Mystery & Magic

Northern Lights Akureyri is a hunting experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of colors, lights and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic.

For the Northern Lights hunt we drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. Where you will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on weather.  The also called Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar caps.

Our goal in not only to find the right sights for 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.

We departs daily at 21:30 during the season witch is September 1st until April 15th.

Northern Lights Akureyri tour is also available as a private tour
