When and Where to see the Northern Lights
The Best Time to Travel
There are a few things to consider when deciding When and Where to See the Northern Lights on holiday. There is no way of predicting when the natural wonder appears but certain factors, such as a new moon, being above the Arctic Circle and staying in a remote location away from light pollution, can increase the chance of the Northern Lights being visible.
Displays of the Aurora Borealis are always unique, appearing in shades of yellow, blue and green and sometimes lasting all night while others only long enough to catch a glimpse. The Northern Lights can be seen between September and April depending on your location and are more likely to be visible in clear weather conditions.
