Lapland is a beautiful destination of unique contrasts and natural phenomena – polar nights, autumn colours, Northern Lights, Ice Age feels amidst Arctic cities. If you are done with Lapland’s introduction, you might be just ready to experience the Northern Lights.

Introducing the Northern Lights:

The Northern Lights, scattering around the Arctic sky in colours of green, red, and purple, are a memorable sight to behold. This beautiful moving display of colours seems to move up close that you can almost touch it. And if you’re completely quiet, you may listen to the faint crackling of the Northern Lights during the freezing night time.

The Northern Lights is also well-known as Aurora Borealis. This fascinating spectacle of lights sparks up into the night sky. The scientific explanation is that the Aurora Borealis are created when the charged particles of solar wind come in contact with the Earth’s atmosphere.

The closer you go the polar region, the more often you can see the lights flaming in the night sky. The right way to see the Northern Lights is to get away from the lights of the city. Here are some of the best ways to experience the Northern Lights on Lapland tours:

Spend a night in a glass igloo:

Lying on a soft reindeer underneath a beautiful, colourful display of the Northern Lights – seems like an exciting thing for you? From a glass igloo, get a chance to see the Northern Lights comfortable indoors on a bed. There is a huge availability of glass igloos and accommodations designed only for watching the Northern Lights throughout Lapland.
