About this trip

 Enjoy and discover with us for 5 amazing days the incredible land of vikings with its hot springs, mountains, moon-like landscape, bird cliffs, lighthouses and fishing villages and beautiful Northenlights. 

The bright dancing lights of the Northenlights, or Aurora, are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemisphere.
