When is the best time to spot Aurora Borealis in Lapland ?
The best times for viewing the Aurora Borealis or The Northern Lights are from September until early April. Many people associate the Northern Lights with winter, but the most active seasons are actually autumn and spring. Seeing the Northern Lights requires clear skies and just a bit of luck. Autumn is a beautiful time because the snow hasn’t yet fallen, the nights are inky black, resulting in perfect aurora-spotting conditions. The shortest days of the year, from December to January, increase your chances of spotting the lights, but they are also extremely cold ! February to March are also popular months for aurora hunting because the nights are still long but there is significantly less snowfall which means the skies are less cloudy. The spring equinox in March is said to bring greater solar activity, which means prime time for spying the lights.
