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 to "hunt" Aurora Borealis. Our professional local photographer drives you to the best places as he can, depending on the weather. He will help and advise you how to photograph the magnificent Northern Lights professionally. He also takes some photos of the participants and sends 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 are not to be arranged during the totally cloudy weather. If the sky is partly cloudy we hunt for the clear spots on the sky.
The Northern Lights appear mainly between the beginning of September and the end of March.
