Northern Lights, Greenland

A walk through this deep fissure of rock, running for 11 miles (17 km) from Omalos to Aghia Roumeli on the south coast of Crete, is not for the unfit. Once in the gorge, there’s no turning back.

It’s a Dantean landscape of sheer rock rising towards the sun, which in high summer shines without mercy. Towards the end, the rock walls are 1,640 ft (500 m) high.

An aurora[ (plural: auroras or aurorae), also commonly known as the polar lights, is a natural light display in Earth’s sky, predominantly seen in high-latitude regions (around the Arctic and Antarctic). Auroras display dynamic patterns of brilliant lights that appear as curtains, rays, spirals, or dynamic flickers covering the entire sky. Wikpedia
