Northern lights, magical spectacle above us

From mythology and old scripts we can find out that scientists and people wondered in thousands of years about green lines over the skies.

In northern country, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas. The Eskimos believe that they are the souls of animals. Some even believe that as the auroras dance closer to the those who are watching them, that they will envelop you, and take you to the heavens. Many believe that its a sign that the spirits of their loved ones are still close and are watching over them always.

Aurora Borealis is around midnight when Iceland’s Aurora Oval is said to pass over the observer.

As Icelandic tour operator, Aurora hunters, we would like to hear from you so do not hesitate to book this trip.
