Guided Tour at Aurora

Book a guided tour of the distillery with complimentary tastings and learn about making fine alcohol in the arctic circle. Great views, local tastes and interesting facts guaranteed!

AURORA SPIRIT has established the northernmost distillery in the world. The Lyngen Alps, the fjords and the Arctic wilderness are an excellent setting for making whisky and other alcoholic drinks. All products are based on local herbs, berries and glacier water. Our Brand is Bivrost and comes from Old Norse language, used to describe the Northern Lights. Bivrost was believed to be a bridge between heaven and earth, guarded by the fierce god Heimdall of Norse mythology. At our spectacular visitor centre you can learn about Bivrost, Norse mythology and about making alcohol under the Northern Lights. The Distillery Tour will be taken by a qualified staff member who will guide you through the process of manufacturing various types of spirits such as vodka, aquavit, gin and whisky. You’ll get a glimpse into the mysterious past of Viking age drinking customs and learn about hi-tech alcohol production on top of the world. During this exciting guided tour, you will see, feel and smell Arctic ingredients all used in our production.
