Northern lights hunting with plan G

In Norse mythology, aurora was Bifrost a bridge between earth and asgard - home of goods. It was guarded by the Heimdal and destroyed during ragnarok. Some attributed the aurora to reflections from the shields of the Valkyries - women chosen by Odin to guide fallen warriors to Valhalla. Others believed their glow came from the beautiful Viking goddess Freja, riding horseback on the sky.<br>These days we know aurora is caused by solar wind and thanks to science and technology we can predict it with high possibility.<br>We would like to offer you private hunting away from bus tours at remote spots visited by very few with a optional plan G.<br>With us you take no risk!<br>We'll contact you day before tour to discuss viewing probability and <br>if due to spoiled weather we cancel the tour you'll be refunded or offered different date. As for the plan G - if weather would be mixed we can get underground first, explore cave and after watch northern lights or the other way around depending on the weather.

We had a couple of spare days in Keflavik where there isn’t much to do. We took a walk along the coast one morning about 5k to the Viking museum. We knew it would be closed but it’s a nice walk and you also pass through the little house in the moss. The museum building is very interesting and good to photograph itself. It’s quite small.

Premium price to enter with some of the worst peripheral exhibits of virtually any museum I've ever been in. There were two especially interesting cabinets of bone carvings, but that was about it. If there was a storm outside or you needed to waste time the fabulous array of options included buying expensive snacks, trying on a viking helmet or watching a film about how Vikings reached Greenland and North America. The only highlight is the 22m long boat. The Islendingur is a replica of the Golkstad and was built in 1996 and sailed to the States in 2000 to replicate Leif Ericson's voyage. It then returned to be suspended from the roof of the Viking Museum so that you could walk beneath the keel and walk on the deck from the 1st floor and marvel at it's construction.

Me and my boyfriend got stuck in Keflavik for a day because our flight was cancelled, so we decided to learn about the vikings on the museum. It is really really tiny, so most of the time we spent watching the video about Eric the Red and the possibility of the vikings having arrived in the America before Colombus. Although it was an old video, it had interesting information. Better than staying in at the hotel watching regular TV.
