When nature puts on a celestial show, it’s compelling. The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis (named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas) is, without doubt, the most captivating spectacle nature has to offer, and all you have to do is be in the right place at the right time, and look up.
Why does the Aurora Borealis happen?
These heavenly lights occur because gaseous particles collide with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere into the Earth’s atmosphere. The variety of gas particles means various truly stunning colours appear in the sky.
You can see them in various places, and in The Northern Lights Village in Levi, you can watch from your own Aurora Cabin. The village is situated 16km outside of the centre of Levi, where there is no light pollution and in prime territory for searching for the Northern Lights.
When is the best time to go?
The best time to see the northern lights in Finland is from December to March, when the skies are at their darkest for longer. During the day, you can participate in winter activities too, especially if you book with Aurora Zone experts like theaurorazone.com
