What are the northern lights, you ask?

As an avid photographer who’s successfully spotted this natural phenomenon countless times, Fiffi has a lot of photos to share and stories to tell. Learn about what makes the northern lights and what it’s like to see them in person on tour in Iceland. After learning about the science of the northern lights, hear some of the Icelandic legends behind the phenomenon. As a country with a strong mythical heritage, it’s no wonder that trolls and elves were thought to be crucial to northern lights sightings in Iceland.
