Activities

At the Aurora Borealis Observatory we are specialized in the Northern Lights experience. Our location is one of the best locations in the world for Aurora observations.
The Aurora is something you experience and observe in the evening and night time. However, there is a lot to do on our wonderful island even when the Northern Lights do not dance over the sky. 

Most of the activities are offered through local providers that we cooperate with, while certain activities are organized by us. We recommend you book your activities after your arrival because of the varying weather conditions we experience throughout the year.
