Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) – Guide to Lapland – Best time for the Northern Lights in Lapland (Rovaniemi)
Nothing is more “simple”!
The farther north you go beyond the Arctic Circle, the more you can see it.
Solar storms, geomagnetic fields, wind speeds and many other factors help to create this fantastic lighting effect.
An application, not expensive, allows you, by entering the site “auroraalert.fi” to be informed by text message, at any time of the night, should the magic of the lights occur. Naturally on clear nights.
Leave your clothes and camera ready before going to bed, in order to speed up the departture as the phenomenon could be of long or short duration.
