Northern Lights magic
We watched a show if the Northern Lights dance across the sky directly above us. It was magical! The quiet landscape of the horse farm lent itself to our sense of wonder.

Gorgeous scenery with the horses on the property and the hot tub for patrons' use was an added bonus. Staff were super friendly, and great decor of the dining room/kitchen and lounge area. Wish i stayed more than 1 night.

Hestheimar Overnight stay
This was a rural property and very nice. It would have been our best place we stayed in to see Northern lights but the weather did not cooperate. They had food available for purchase but we got on the road early and didn't buy breakfast. Again we had to remove shoes at front door, but slippers were provided.
