So in case you were wondering where the Northern Lights go during the summer when the skies are illuminated by those long nights of daylight, then a visit to Aurora Reykjavik, the city’s latest attraction, will leave you fully informed! We got a sneak peek at this fab exhibition last night, which is dedicated entirely to the phenomenon. The centre opens officially today and promises visitors an informative and beautifully crafted experience with great interactive educational tools, impressive displays, tips on where and when to see the Northern Lights and how to photograph them successfully. It’s actually a brilliant idea: it acts as an invaluable preparation tool for chasers of the Northern lights during the winter and offers a multimedia simulation of them for visitors in the summer—when the sky is too bright to see them in reality. The tour costs 1,800 ISK, with discounts for students, children and those with a Reykjavik Welcome Card. It’s also included in Iceland Travel’s Hidden Powers & Northern Lights Hunt!
