NORTHERN LIGHTS

In Finland, nature’s most spectacular light show, the Aurora Borealis, can be viewed from the Gregory cabins.

The Northern Lights are visible on roughly 200 nights a year – or every other clear night – in Finnish Lapland. The more traditional ways to go Aurora spotting are snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobile and sled dog touring. If gazing at the dark sky in crispy winter air is not your thing, you can simply add comfort.

In Finland, nights are dark enough for Northern Lights viewing from late August to April. Seeing them requires clear skies and just a bit of luck. Chances of catching them get better the further north you go.
