Northern Lights in Lofoten

Have you ever been outdoors on a cold winter night? In that case you may have witnessed one of the most magnificent phenomena that nature has to offer: the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, as seen in the northern hemisphere, or the so called Southern Lights, Aurora Australis, in the southern hemisphere. These auroras are also referred to as the Polar Lights. The Northern Lights are seen on dark clear nights from September to April.

Here in Lofoten we live beneath the Auroral Oval. This is a belt of light that encircles the geomagnetic poles, beneath which you have the best chance of seeing the colourful, flickering Northern Lights. They will often start low in the northern sky, moving higher up as the evening progresses. READ MORE about Northern Lights in Lofoten
