Northern Lights Holidays: Aurora Report
It’s the perfect time for a Northern Lights Holiday. Forecasts predict that it's going to be a truly memorable year for viewing the aurora. According to solar physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University, early this winter season the sun’s vast magnetic field will undergo a complete polar field reversal in an event which is has been coined “the Solar Flip”. As the solar winds reach their most turbulent at the peak of the solar flip, the Northern Lights, which are dictated by solar activity, will be displayed this winter at an intensity rarely ever seen.
The show is well underway and Finland, Norway and Sweden have the best seats. Make sure you book a winter holiday for the main event as this is not one to miss!
Throughout the winter season we will be reporting back from our destinations in Arctic Scandinavia with regular updates on Northern Lights activity. By clicking on the various destinations in the interactive map below you will be directed to a blog for that particular area, on which will be posted updates to what has been spotted by our eager “aurora-hunters”. The aim is to bring you closer to the action than ever before so be sure to keep checking this page for the latest updates from the frozen north.
Keep your eyes to the skies!
