Norðurljós is a recital hall on Harpa’s second floor, situated between Eldborg and Silfurberg. It offers various possibilities for concerts, conferences, receptions and other events. Norðurljós is ideal for a sinfonietta, chamber groups, jazz bands, as well as other types of events.

There are balconies all around the perimeter of the hall, and the stage is movable. The hall is equipped with custom-designed lighting equipment that can be configured in a number of coloured themes, creating the most suitable atmosphere for the event taking place. Two soundproofed portals connect Norðurljós and Silfurberg, so that the two halls can easily be used together for larger events.

Norðurljós can accommodate 520 seated guests (theatre style). A large window between Norðurljós and the space in front of it allows daylight into the hall.
