The Northern Lights

Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon seen only from a select few locations in the world. Northern Finland is a prime observation point for this spectacular occurrence and excursions are extremely popular.

Enveloped in mystery and intrigue, this streaking of the night's sky with colour can sometimes be glimpsed from within the holiday resorts themselves, but often your best chance of seeing them is on one of the night time tours by snowmobile or sleigh ride.

Witness majestic dark skies shot through with electric greens, petrol blues, ochre yellows and neon pinks and purples. This ever-shifting display of misty colours is an ethereal experience not to be missed.
