tour

If you are a northward looking adventurer you will be astounded by the exploding sky, high over the northern landscape. Awesome lights dance in arcs and curtains with beauty finer than the imagination can comprehend.

Caught up on the solar winds, this beauty is spread across the night sky enticing you onward and out onto the northern land of the Aurora Borealis. Once bitten by this sky dance you will never want to leave the North behind in your memories.
