The northern part of Scandinavia is an extraordinary place of beauty, intrigue and extremes. Inside the arctic circle, Lapland is an expansive region of snow, reindeer, the Sámi people and the magnificent Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

Traditionally, the Swedish believed the Aurora to be the souls of their ancestors, and something to be somewhat feared. The Finnish believed it to be the tail of the fox, swooshing across the sky. These days we know it to be the interaction of the sun’s radiation with the earth’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. Although we now have this scientific explanation, there is no denying the incredible, uplifting experience of seeing the Aurora….and photographing it!

We were lucky enough once again during our 2017 season to have many spectacular kP4 and 5 displays of the aurora for all our groups, including one very lucky group who witnessed 4 nights in a row of strong and fast moving kP7 auroras!  In fact, all our multi-day tours have witnessed good displays of the aurora for the past 5 years!
