Northern Lights: all you need to know
Seeing the Northern Lights in Finland is a dream for many travelers
The Northern Lights are most commonly seen in the polar regions, within a radius of 2,500 km around the magnetic poles. For the Northern Lights, the further north you travel the more likely you are to catch a glimpse of the aurora. Above the Arctic Circle (66°33’N) is the best place to go aurora hunting which is why Lapland is one of the best places on Earth to see the Northern Lights.
Luminous bursts of colour in the heavens appear around every other night between September and March, depending on the weather.
They don’t usually exhibit for long – they may only show for a few minutes, then glide away before returning. A good display may last for no longer than 15-30 minutes at a time, although if you’re really lucky, it could extend to a couple of hours or longer.
There’s a certain amount of luck involved in spotting the mysterious, mystical Northern Lights, but there are ways to maximize your chances; head outside after dark, away from city lights and other pollution, to a place where the heavens are at their darkest. In general, the Northern Lights are most active shortly before midnight, but they’re visible any time once the sun sets and the skies turn black. Some people claim the aurora comes out when temperatures are colder. This isn’t the case – it’s just that when the skies are cloudless, temperatures tend to drop. Choose a clear viewpoint and a cloudless winter sky and pay attention to the lunar calendar – the brightness of a full moon weakens the intensity of the aurora.
