Visiting Lapland is on many people’s bucket lists – and it’s clear why! Lapland, located in the northern regions of Finland on the lip of the Arctic Circle, is one of the world’s most well-preserved treasures. Spanning hundreds of kilometres and filled with snow covered landscapes, there is so much to discover in this hidden gem.
There are so many things to do in Lapland, and one of the most sought-after wonders are the Northern Lights. This unique natural phenomenon can only be found in the northernmost and southernmost parts of our Earth, and is one of the most breathtaking sights one can ever behold.
What are the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)?
The Lapland Northern Lights can be described as flashing, moving green, yellow, blue and pink lights across the sky. It almost looks unreal when you see it in person, like somebody is creating the colors and shapes using special effects.
In actual fact, the Northern Lights is a completely natural phenomenon. Believe it or not, the aurora borealis is set in motion by activity on the surface of the sun. There are such things as “solar storms” that occur on the surface of the sun, giving off electrically charged particles. These particles interact with the particles in our atmosphere and lights up the night’s sky in the most magical way in Lapland.
When you complete a Northern Lights tour in Lapland with Wildmaker, you’ll learn all about the aurora borealis, and why you can only see this spectacular natural phenomenon in the Arctic Circle.
