The Northern Lights have always been a mystery to people living in Arctic regions, with many adopting myths and legends around the Aurora to explain the spectacular lights dancing in the sky. Now with advances in research and science, much more is understood about the cause, however most still find the experience life-changing and in some cases spiritual.
Although seeing the Northern Lights is never guaranteed, planned Northern Lights activities allow guests to not only reach the best viewing spots to give the highest chance of experiencing the Aurora, but also give guests the chance to learn from knowledgeable guides.
To make the most out of a Northern Lights activity in Lapland you need clear dark skies, therefore the winter months is a prime time to visit. Although many Northern Light activity providers will have additional equipment and clothing, it is important to ensure you are prepared for the cold winter nights – and don’t forget to pack your camera!
