Aurora Borealis – The ballerina of the sky

Northern light

Vesterålen is situated in the middle of the Northern Lights oval, and is therefore perfectly placed for Aurora Borealis experiences. From Melbu and Stokmarknes we will bring guests into grand sceneries with our own guides.

The evening and the night is the best time to experience this amazing phenomenon. The scientific name on the Northern Lights is «Aurora Borealis». Aurora was the Goddess of the dawn, and Boreal means «northern». [

After a late Aurora Borealis experience, our guests can enjoy a late breakfast and check out from our co-operating hotels.

The Northern Lights are fireworks – unbelievable even for the most spirited mind. No colour and no brush is able to paint it, and no word is able to describe it’s greatness.
Carl Weyprecht, Austrian polar explorer
