Unique Northern Lights!

During Eastern there was an explotion on the Sun that sent a lot of particles against mother Earth. A couple of days later this resulted in amazing Northern Lights here in Norway, observed all over the country!

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, is a "sky-and-light phenomenon" that can knock even the most experienced nature fanatic off the chair. It is without doubt one of the most fascinating and breath taking phenomenon that the nature has to offer. The Northern parts of Norway are one of the best places in the world to observe it, especially during the winter season.

Did you know?

  • The phenomenon is caused when particles with a lot of energy is fired from the Sun and into the atmosphere leaded by the Earth’s magnet field. The particles hit molecules consists of oxygen and nitrogen and between 100 and 300 kilometers from the earth, and some of this “collision energy” is transmitted as light
  • To see this phenomenon it has to be dark and clear
  • In the Northern parts of Norway you can see it almost every night during the best periods. In comparison to the Southern parts of Europe like the area around the Mediterranean Sea were it appears only for a couple of times each 100 year, this is often!
  • Strong northern lights can be compared with moonlight – it is stronger than all the stars combined

If you want to see and experience the Aurora Borealis in Norway we recommend that you go to the Northern parts in the county of Finnmark, Nordland and Troms to increase your changes. The phenomenon appears all over the country at certain conditions, but it is in the north that you got the best chance to experience it in general. February and March are among the months where you got the best chance to experience it, and please feel free to send us an e-mail at post@nordic-experience.no if you have any questions or an inquiry for your Aurora Borealis experience. For groups of at least 6 persons we are happy to help organizing a trip up north if we have the capacity on your scheduled dates.
