Northern Lights & Stargazing via Happyworld

On this tour we pick you up and whisk you away from the city lights to where we predict the best sightings according to cloud forecast. Our small tour allows us to get off the beaten path and away from the crowds to enjoy the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in serenity. At our chosen spot, while waiting for the lights, we use our powerful stargazing telescope to explore crude details of the planets in our solar system, their moons and deep space phenomena light years away.
