Northern Iceland is the perfect place for northern lights hunting. Be sure not to miss out the dancing northern lights! See the Northern Lights in Akureyri.

Starting from Akureyri, together we hunt for the Northern Lights. Named after the Roman goddess Aurora these colorful lights swirl around the sky in a dramatic dance. The old Icelandic folktale tells us about the angels dancing in heaven, their dresses were supposed to create these magnificent shapes of light in the sky.

Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. Discrete aurora often displays magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green.
