The Northern Lights
Chasing the Northern Lights, also referred to as the Aurora Borealis, during winter presents an unforgettable journey. These regions are renowned for their pristine skies and minimal light interference, providing ideal settings for witnessing this natural wonder. Bundling up warmly and exercising patience are essential for fully enjoying this awe-inspiring chase.

However, it is important to acknowledge that the aurora's appearance can be unpredictable, appearing only when conditions are right (it needs to be cold and dark with clear skies). Thus, maintaining patience is crucial when seeking the Northern Lights and understanding that this phenomenon is unpredictable and sighting the Northern Lights cannot be guaranteed.

Winter Sightseeing Activities
Please note sightseeing tours are weather dependent and may be cancelled if the weather conditions are not ideal, guests' safety cannot be guaranteed or in case of unforeseen events.

Winter Weather Conditions
In winter, Northern Norway and Finnish Lapland experience harsh conditions with temperatures often dropping well below freezing. Snowfall is common, blanketing the region in a thick layer of snow. Strong winds can further intensify the cold, making it feel even chillier. Daylight hours are significantly reduced, with the polar night phenomenon occurring in some areas, where the sun doesn't rise above the horizon for an extended period.

Dressing for Winter Tours
Dressing for winter requires layers to combat the extreme cold. Start with a thermal base layer, followed by insulating layers such as fleece or wool, and finish with a waterproof and windproof outer layer. Accessories like hats, gloves, scarves, and insulated boots are essential to keep extremities warm in subzero temperatures and snowy conditions.
