Northern Lights in Lofoten Norway
Few experiences on this earth can match the awe and amazement of witnessing the magical glow of the Northern Lights. They are purely nature at work as they dance their way across the night skies. From many shades of green to pink and violet in intensity the bigger the solar storm the bigger the lightshow one can see.
The only way to see the Northern Lights in Norway is to head north above the Arctic Circle where you are in the middle of the aurora zone. The Lofoten islands are ideally situated and they offer some of the best Norwegian landscapes to enhance your Northern Lights photographs. The small fishing villages make a beautiful foreground to any Northern Lights photo with their surrounding blue fjord waters and snowy mountain ranges with the green covered sky of the Aurora Borealis shining above. The many spectacular beaches with their reflections of the Northern Lights glowing in the waters, they face north which is a key factor to seeing the aurora. These options make excellent elements to include in your memorable photographs of the Northern Lights.
The Northern Lights do tend to intensify around the equinox months of March and September due to the magnetic fields of the Earth and the Sun’s solar winds which are more in synch. Stronger displays are possible at this time though still not guaranteed. The nights are long and dark with March offering the best chance of clear skies.
Come with us on a memorable trip of a lifetime in either March or September to see the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights in Lofoten Norway.
