See the Northern Lights in Scandinavia

See the Northern Lights in Scandinavia

Scandinavia is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. NASA predicted that 2012 would have the best conditions in decades to see this natural wonder. Like curtains caught by the wind, the Northern Lights are elusive. However, when they do make an appearance, the entire sky explodes in colour.

Where can I see the Northern Lights?

You can see the Northern Lights all over northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, but coastal areas are generally better than inland areas, as the coast has clear skies more often. The best places are above the Arctic Circle. SAS flies to all the great Northern Lights spots in Scandinavia.

Norway: Alta, Bodø, Kirkenes, Narvik, Tromsø and Longyearbyen
Sweden: Luleå and Kiruna
Finland: Kittilä, Kuusamo and Oulu

When can I see them?

The Aurora Borealis, known as the Northern Lights, happen all year round, but you need dark, clear conditions in order to see them. Generally, the prime seasons for viewing the Northern Lights are early autumn and spring. Most Northern Lights eruptions occur between 6pm and midnight, particularly around 10 to 11pm. However, the Northern Lights are unpredictable and no one knows when the lights will show.
