At least once in a lifetime one must see the play of the myriad waves of colours that are the Northern Lights in the dark Lapland sky. According to folklore, the Northern Lights occur when the firefoxes brush against the trees or their tails touch the snow. Here you can see the Northern Lights an average of 200 nights of the year. The Northern Lights grace the sky year-round as long as the sky is dark enough for us to see them. The best time for watching them is throughout the winter and on into April. In an excursion to witness the Northern Lights you can learn a great deal about the Northern Lights, and on a Northern Light holiday you can also learn to photograph them.
