Northern Lights

Come along on the search for the Northern Lights and enjoy a true winter experience. In the northern hemisphere, in the so-called Aurora oval, Northern Lights can be seen almost every clear night. In Sweden the Aurora oval usually at Kiruna’s latitude, so the chances to see the Northern Lights are good.

As a matter of fact, this might be the best place in the world to see the Northern lights. The white snow reflects a heavenly light show – glittering stars, a full moon and the magical, mystical Northern Lights.
