Lapland is the name given to a cultural region which stretches from the north of Finland through Sweden, Norway and into Russia. Much of Lapland is above the Artic Circle and arguably the best region in Finland to enjoy consistent sightings of the northern lights.
In Finnish Lapland the northern lights are visible on around 200 nights a year – about every other clear night between September and March. Due to it's sparesly populated wilderness, there is little light pollution outside of cities such as Rovaniemi. With miles of snowy fields and fir tree lined roads, small towns and remote lodges, Finnish Lapland makes a great place to experience the northern lights.
During the dark winter months here, with barely a sunrise, the Northern Lights in Finland appear quite regularly, and other peak seasons include February through to March and September through to October. Swirling shades of blue, green, and red are most common when it comes to the Northern Lights in Finland, and clear nights are best for viewing them.
Never miss a chance to see them at the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort where glass igloos provide night-long vistas of the northern sky, where you can lay in wait in comfort for the northen lights to make an appearance.
