Note: Understandably, there is no promise of viewing the Northern Lights. We will hope for the best and be prepared if luck smiles on us. We will pay close attention to the cloud cover and the aurora forecast and our guides will keep us informed of the best chances of seeing the Northern Lights. The Aurora Borealis are usually green, though white, red and purple colors may also appear. According to ancient Icelandic religion, the dancing northern lights are the fierce Valkyrie riding into battle in Valhalla.
