Have you experienced the Northern Lights? Perhaps one of the most wonderful light phenomena nature can offer. The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is at its most intense far north in the northern hemisphere. It’s beautiful and mythical, like floating silk veils waving across the night sky in shades of green, yellow, white and pink. Sometimes as a flickering light, other times as an explosion of colours. There are few things more magical than standing in a white-covered landscape and admiring the green diva dancing in the vaults of heaven, like the universe’s own pulse. It’s an experience you will never forget.
The Northern Lights may be observed on dark, clear evenings from September to April. For optimal conditions, head out of town away from the bright lights. Remember to turn off your headtorch and car lights, too. The Northern Lights often start as very dim light in the north and move higher during the evening and night.
