NORTHERN LIGHTS

Northern Lights, sometimes referred to as a Polar Light or Aurora, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude regions like Iceland.

Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity.

ELVES (ÁLFAR)

The origin of the elves in Iceland (álfar in Icelandic) goes back to Germanic paganism and mythology. They were originally a race of minor gods associated with nature and fertility.

Elves are usually invisible, but can be seen if they feel like it. They can be helpful and kind to those who do them no harm, and repay favors with favors. On the other hand, they can also be malicious and take revenge if harmed.

Elves in Iceland are often pictured as splendid and beautifully dressed, especially in colorful silk. They usually dwell in nature, especially in forests, rocks, hillocks, wells and springs.

TROLLS (TRÖLL)

The Icelandic Trolls are human-like in form, they are still inhumanly strong, huge and ugly. The Trolls are very often thought to be fearsome and cruel creatures.

But, like the elves, trolls in Iceland often treat people as they are treated and they return favors for favors, exerting vengeance if harmed.

The Icelandic Trolls live in mountains, caves and cliffs, especially bird cliffs. Like humans, they live together socially. They fish, cultivate land and keep animals. They are very good at handicrafts and hold feasts.
