Aurora in Finnmark

The other reason the brave the cold in the high north of Norway during winter is to have to chance to see the northern lights. To have all the elements line up to have the perfect conditions to see the northern lights is not always easy but during our dog sledding tour we had lady luck on our side. We had great conditions during on some nights and managed to get a glimpse at the elusive green lady as the northern lights are also known. When we were on tour with the dogs on the plateaus in the Finnmark wilderness the nights were clear and turn really cold, perfect conditions for the aurora to appear. We were amazed at the light show that unfolded above us and we could not get enough, even if the cold was gnawing at our hands and feet. Such a spectacle is not to be missed and for sure we are planning the next encounter.
