A MYSTICAL ISLAND
The Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon with a scientific explanation. They appear in the northern hemisphere and the stunning colours are created when nitrogen and oxygen particles are mixed with the particles in the atmosphere. Looking at this breathtaking light show, it is not hard to understand how it is the source of many mystical stories. The Icelandic people still have strong beliefs in the supernatural and permission from the elves is requested when building a new road or planning a house.
