Aurora hunting in Iceland

Northern Lights in Húsavík

Húsavík is located on the northern cost of Iceland, just 30 miles below the arctic circle. Because of the towns northerly location, it is become a popular destination for aurora hunters who travel from all over the world to witness the incredible dance of the northern lights.

The Northern Lights, sometimes called the Polar Lights or the auroras, are a natural light display in the sky in the high-latitude regions, around the Arctic and Antarctic.

The word aurora is derived from the name of the Roman goddess of the same name who traveled from east to west announcing the coming of the sun.

Húsavík Cape Hotel offers winter specials for people who want to stay 2 or more nights during the aurora season. Contact our booking office by email
