The solar minimum may be on its way but it does not mean that we will not see Auroras anymore in Lapland. A coronal hole created enough disturbance to spark bright Auroras in Inari. Check out all the pictures from the best northern lights display that I have ever witnessed.
Stories about Northern Lights Chasing. Most of them happened during an Aurora tour in Inari and Kaamanen in the very north of Finnish Lapland. Sometimes we have to cross the border to Porsanger or Kirkenes in Norway, our very welcoming neighbour.
As an experienced Aurora Chaser and a Northern Lights Addict, I will always go to the world’s end to find the beautiful green Aurora Borealis, either alone or with my guests. It helps staying motivated when you know that on a clear night, it is almost guaranteed to find some green colours of the Northern Lights in the sky.
Of course, I would also go Northern Lights Chasing anywhere else in the world, like in Greenland in 2016 for example. You can find me anywhere where there’s a chance for Aurora!
Aurora Photography Tours are the best way to increase your chances to see the Aurora. In January, my Italian guests booked me 2 nights in a row for a tour, and we were in for quite some adventures. Check out how it went!
With unreliable weather forecasts, we had a very challenging Northern Lights Excursion around Inari with my guests from Australia. They came from so far away and it was their only chance to see the Aurora Borealis! Check out how we find the Northern Lights between Inari and Utsjoki after so much driving!
When I travelled to Lapland at the occasion of the Inari Camera Borealis festival, I also guided a few guests to see and photograph the Aurora. On 18 November, despite the rather weak forecast, we were in for a treat!
This year 2017 has provided amazing displays of Northern Lights up in Northern Finnish Lapland. Check out my own 7 favourite pictures of the year.
Many people think that in Europe, it is only possible to see Aurora, aka the northern lights, deep in winter, and north of the Arctic Circle. However, under the right conditions, this is not necessarily true. I show you here that yes, you can see Aurora in south Finland for example.
Where is the best place to see Northern Lights is a question that is frequently asked to me. I have done extensive research before travelling myself to see the Aurora, and have concluded that Inari is the best place for this. There are scientific, cultural and touristic reasons for this. Check them out here.
I am often asked how often it is possible to see the Aurora. My answer is that on a clear night, it is almost always possible to catch at least a glimpse of the northern lights. And with a bit of luck like I had during the first week of March, it is even possible to have a 100% success rate and 6 nights with great Aurora around Inari in…
When the Aurora does not go to sleep all night long, then what other choice do I have than spending a sleepless night with the northern lights in Lapland? I just came back from my latest trip to Inari in northern Lapland, which was fantastic in terms of Auroras. There were bright displays every day of the week! In this blog post, I focus on one particular night, when I…
