Today on the National Geographic Endurance we took a very special after-dinner excursion to the Arctic Henge in Raufarhofn, one of the most remote villages in Iceland. The Arctic Henge is Iceland’s largest open-air art piece. It consists of large stone arches intentionally placed to line up with the midnight sun, acting like a huge sundial. It celebrates Icelandic culture with allusions to mythology and folklore. It is the brainchild of Erlingur Thoroddsen and is still under construction.
