Autumn Northern Lights
While most people go for Northern Lights hunting together with other winter activities, the Best Aurora Viewing Season is actually Autumn. Autumn usually has a clearer sky, is less cloudy and has least risk of snowing weather. The earth’s orientation towards the sun during Autumn maximises the probability of solar flares interacting with the planet’s magnetic field to generate this phenomenon. This Autumn Aurora holiday is therefore perfect for aurora hunters during the warmest time of the entire Northern light season.
This 5-day holiday highlights hand-picked accommodations, including an award-winning Glass Villa by the Bothnian Coast in Kemi, offering panorama views to spot the magical Northern Lights from your bedroom. The other 2 nights you will spend in the newest Spa Hotel in Luleå, the biggest city in Swedish Lapland. The package includes a Northern lights tour, a visit to the Moose & Reindeer Park as well as a guided tour to UNESCO World Heritage site Gammesltad.
