The Aurora Borealis

Billowing across clear night skies, the shimmering rays of the Aurora Borealis can be encountered against the picturesque backdrops of Iceland, Norway and Sweden. We at The Mighty Fine Company have designed incredible escapes to stunning locations in the vicinity of the Arctic Circle, which will bring you closer than ever before to seeing the stunning spectacle of the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights have long been the subject of folklore and legend, with different cultures offering strange and wonderful explanations for the presence of the Aurora. Some claimed that the ethereal colours are the spectres of ancestors while the Vikings believed the Aurora to be beautiful female creatures called Valkyries who would escort heroes killed in battle to the afterlife. The true explanation for the appearance of the Aurora Borealis does not detract from the beauty of this phenomenon, and with our comprehensive tours, you may be fortunate enough to witness the solar electrons colliding with the Earth’s atmosphere, projecting the incredible flares of the Aurora.
