Reykjavik

Iceland - Northern Lights and Wagner's Die Walküre

At 65° N on the southern edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the aurora borealis, or northern lights. Don't miss this unique opportunity to view the dynamic patterns of brilliant lights that appear as curtains, rays, spirals or dynamic flickers covering the entire sky, coupled with Wagner's Die Walküre in the Harpa. Chosen as one of the best concert houses of the new millenium by Gramophone in 2010, the Harpa is one of Reykjavík’s most striking landmarks and a centre of cultural and social life in the very heart of the city.  (February 2022)
