The Aurora Borealis, more commonly referred to as the "northern lights", is a natural phenomenon that occurs when solar activity releases a cloud of gas that is drawn into the earth´s magnetic fields, creating charged particles that collide with oxygen and nitrogen atoms in the upper atmosphere.
On this safari we will drive by car from Ivalo village for the "hunting" Aurora Borealis. Our professional local photographer drives you to the best places as he can, depending on the weather. He will help and advice you how to photograph of the magnificent Northern Lights professionally. He also takes some photos of the participants and send them to you by email afterwards. It´s possible to see the Northern Lights only during the clear sky and when the daylight is gone; the safaris not to be arranged during the cloudy weather.
The Northern Lights appear mainly between the beginning of September and the end of March, with peak visibility from December to February.
