Book your northern lights tour

Book your museum ticket

We are hunters of an elusive subject called
Aurora Borealis.
We created Aurora Reykjavik to share our passion and knowledge about the most unique natural phenomenon in the world. This museum was the dream of four people, and the wonders here are the work of many.
We have traveled the entire world chasing the light, but our adventures have always brought us home. 
Aurora Reykjavík is both the start and the result of an endless fascination.
Come in, and see what we have seen.
