The Northern Lights
Valanhamn is located in the centre of the Northern Lights zone.
Valanhamn is one of the best places on earth to view this phenomenon.
Should you be outdoors one evening during winter, take a minute and glance up at the skies. If you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of some flickering curtains of lights, apparently dancing across the dark sky. You are watching the northern lights, a celestial phenomenon that has amazed people for centuries.
