The northern lights can be seen from September until April in latitudes above 55° north. To have the best chances of seeing the northern lights you need clear skies and no light pollution, along with a good amount of patience. Choosing a location for your aurora hunting trip can be difficult, as the aurora are fickle, as is the weather. It’s not just about finding a location that is far north, but also taking in to consideration the weather conditions, light pollution, ease of access and of course the cost. Finding a destination that not only offers the chance to watch the aurora but also has lots of other activities on offer too will make sure that you have an unforgettable trip whatever happens.
