Overall, an interesting place to visit, albeit very awkward to get to if you walk. The Planetarium was very cool for learning about the scientific side of the Northern Lights but I felt it didn’t really go into the mythology side as much as I’d have liked. I felt I learned more at the Northern Lights Museum in Reykjavik. Honestly, I think the ice cave was by far the best attraction here, especially as the other exhibits aren’t super extensive. Still a good little trip to pass a few hours and see some cool stuff!

This is a difficult one as there are no gurantees. However, we had a glimpse of it after a 2 hour wait in the stormy cold weather and just as we were about to depart. Managed some photos as well. The guide was good and they dropped us too as we returned later than planned as a result of the time of the sighting. One tip: practice with your camera beforehand to take low light pictures. The naked eye struggles to see it but the camera will capture it

Wonderful auroras movie. The ice cave is real. And the museum is very good with several videos. Under the dome a very nice cafe. It is worth taking out the full ticket. There is a circular terrza to see the whole city and it can be given free without the museum ticket. With the ticket there is a free transport every hour in front of the Port and the last one to return is at 5.30. You can also go by bus, leave five minutes away. I walked from the center and it became heavy because at the end you have to cross tunnels to cross highways and a park that is not marked. About 2 km From the center
