Inspiring visions

Designed for darkness

Out here in Kerlingarfjöll, it's super dark with almost no light pollution so you can experience the night sky like never before. When we designed the lighting for Highland Base, we made sure to limit the glow so that you'd get the best view of the Arctic heavens.

*Disclaimer: Highland Base would like to remind our guests that while the "Highland Aurora Adventure" offer is designed to maximize your chances of witnessing this natural spectacle, sightings of the Northern Lights are not guaranteed. Their occurrence is dependent on both weather conditions and solar activity, which are natural phenomena beyond our control. We strive to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience regardless of the night sky’s display.

Our activity host

Our friendly guide provides onsite tour advice and leads a daily adventure tailored to the winter weather. It could be snowshoeing. It could be hiking. But whatever the day holds, expect excitement.
