The Northern Lights in Lapland
Also known as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are caused by the interplay of solar activity and Earth’s magnetic field in the north polar region. Lapland is one of the best places in Europe for viewing the Northern Lights, and on average the iconic lights can be seen every other clear night between September and March.
Ski and See the Northern Lights
In Lapland the optimum Northern Lights hunting periods coincide with the ski season, giving you a unique opportunity to enjoy fantastic skiing whilst also hunting the Northern Lights. From early December through to March you can ski and enjoy activities in beautiful, quiet resorts during the day and go hunting for the Northern Lights during the evening.
We have a number of specialist accommodations which we recommend for people keen to see the Northern lights, such as the Glass Igloos in Levi.
