Whilst no-one can ever guarantee the aurora, we can always guarantee a great experience looking for northern lights!
Our northern-lights products start in the autumn with week-long arctic activity packages, with the focus on looking for the lights. By the time winter comes, we are too busy working with the huskies to offer the week-long multi-activity packages but you will still be able to hunt the aurora, nightly, by dog-sled and snowmobile. And you will, of course, be able to take part in multi-day dog sledding safaris. In our 2016-17 season nearly all of our groups experienced at least one day of amazing northern lights far from civilisation.
Obviously, the longer the period of time you spend with us in the arctic, the more likely it is that you will get to experience the magic of the aurora.
Autumn starts with spectacular blazing colours as far as your eyes can see, and then the hoar frosts come with the freezing nights, patterning the very ground you walk across. Leaves and then trees are dusted and then laden with crystalising powder until the whole landscape sparkles. Changes can be gradual or overnight and temperatures can fluctuate 20 degrees in a day so each day you can approach the landscape with a new lens, and new expectations.
Add to this the early nights which make it easier to see the northern lights and glittering lakes in which capture their reflections, and it is easy to see why this is one of the best times of year to enjoy this natural phenomenum.
