The Northern Lights Route hopes to introduce its viewers to the fascinating and compelling qualities of the northern regions. This web presentation offers a glimpse into northern traditions. We wish to show how daring journeys to the far corners of the ancient world once came to pass, and to offer you descriptions of life as it once was lived, and still is lived, in this bordering area of sea and ice on the distant shores of northern Europe.
