Thank you for joining Harpa Yachts on the Northern Lights hunt! It was an extra special show that evening with bright auroras filling the sky all night with green, purple and red colors :)

Excellent tour- crew went above and beyond to get us there after my friend's flight was delayed. Gorgeous yacht and the crew worked really hard to find the lights, and keep us warm.
