We decided to stay at the Northern Light Inn as our final stop of our trip largely because of the free transfers to and from the lagoon and the international airport. As it turned out, it was a real unexpected pleasant surprise.
The hotel is clean and spacious - nothing extraordinary but a really comfortable place to relax after a day in the lagoon. The restaurant serves great quality food and has an impressive view of the geothermal power station that looks more like a space-ship when all lit up at night. Food was good for both veggie and meat eaters, and similarly breakfast was tasty.
We had forgotten that we'd be called if there were any aurora sightings, but it was a great addition to our stay. It was unfortunate that everyone then surges into either the car park or into the glass viewing room, and at times it felt a little crowded, but it was worth it to see a big band of green stretching across the sky.
We'd warn that the geothermal power plant can be a bit of a distraction as it is very well lit at night, but if you can appreciate the beauty of the plant in it's own right like we did, it doesn't detract too much from the rest of the stay.
The staff were very helpful and were even happy to arrange a transfer to the airport at 6.45am.
