For millennia, people have been mesmerised by the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. For a long time, it was only those living at extreme latitudes that had ever seen them, but as time as gone on and countries such as Finland have shown themselves to be popular tourist destinations where anyone can see the Northern Lights, more and more people have flocked to the Arctic Circle to drink in nature’s most spectacular light show.
But where exactly is the best place to see the Northern Lights on a trip to Lapland? In this blog, we’ll suggest a few resorts set up almost specifically to give you the very best experience when it comes to spotting the Northern Lights, so that you can return home having had a magical experiences you’ll remember for years to come.
Northern Lights Resorts in Lapland
Lapland is a huge area, and contains some of the last true wilderness regions in Europe. A lot of it is also well within the Arctic Circle, in the magical golden zone of 66 degrees north, the very best latitude to see the Northern Lights.
But you can’t just go anywhere in Lapland and expect an incredible experience. Due to the sheer size of it, much of Lapland is not exactly the ideal holiday destination, particularly when you consider the temperature can drop to -35⁰C.
What you need is a spot that’s ready to welcome travellers who want to experience the very best of Lapland without compromising on comfort, where you can see the Northern Lights as well as enjoy the very best of classic Lappish experiences (and escape to the warmth once in a while).
