The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon caused by electrically-charged solar particles that pass into the Earth's atmosphere. Also known as the Aurora Borealis, which means 'dawn of the north', the aurora can appear suddenly, filling the sky with wisps of green, yellow, red and violet above the horizon. The lights are at their most frequent in late autumn and winter/early spring.

Other Fun Things to Do

  • See the spectacular Midnight Sun, where the sun remains above the horizon during summer solstice. Experience the opposite phenomenon, Polar Night, where the sun does not rise during winter solstice.
  • Take a peek at the Arctic wildlife, where polar bears, walrus, seals and Arctic foxes haunt the ice edge, and millions of seabirds breed and raise their young on ledges and barren islands.
