The Exhibition

A Dance With the Mountains, the exhibition of Northern Lights photos, opened in Wathne’s House in May 2016. All the photos are shot in Fáskrúðsfjörður where a majestic circle of mountains surrounds the fjord and makes the Northern Lights experience unique. Pay us a visit!

What our visitors are saying

Don’t just take it from us. Here is what our visitors have to say.

The photographs are excellent and absolutely worth seeing if you have any interest in the Northern Lights. We were lucky enough to meet Jónína. She is clearly a passionate “aurora hunter” and hearing her talk about her photography and her long time passion for the Northern Lights was a real treat. The gallery itself is in the oldest building in the village, conveniently located next to the Fosshotel where I was staying. The beautiful structure provides a wonderful backdrop for the photographs. If you are staying in Fáskrúðsfjörður or passing through, I would recommend a stop at this gallery. Vincent Chahley

The Exhibition was magnificent. We were mesmerised by each and every photo. The photos shine under a great lighting and the beautiful house makes the experience extra special. After seeing the exhibition we keep wishing for clear skies so we can see the Northern Lights in action. G. Halla and Gísli

Dropped by in Auroras Iceland in Fáskrúðsfjörður and just loved it! An exhibition made by two powerful and passionate women. If you are travelling in East Iceland make sure you don’t miss this exhibition. Really great photos – wonderful old house – really worth visiting! Guðný S. Ólafsdóttir
