Northern light tours

Beginning our Northern Lights tour, we set off into the backcountry by bus, and quickly find ourselves in total darkness beneath Kangerlussuaq’s starry skies. Gazing skyward, you are likely to see brilliant, green bands or flapping curtains of color waving across the celestial sphere. Shades of red, blue and violet are likely as well. This ethereal light display is the result of a scientific phenomenon where gaseous protons and electrons from solar wind collide with molecules in Earth’s atmosphere.
