It’s no secret that Finland has the most magical winters in the world. This winter wonderland looks exactly like a place from the fairy tales where Santa comes riding through the snow. Aside from being stunningly beautiful, Finland offers several exotic travel experiences. However, nothing beats the thrill of witnessing the stunning northern lights. The northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, is a natural phenomenon that occurs near the magnetic poles of the Earth. They are usually seen as lights in the hues or green and red, which lights up the night sky. Since Finland is located in the northernmost part of Europe, it is quite near to the Arctic Circle. This rare and magical phenomenon can be witnessed on clear nights from the period of September to March in the Finnish Lapland.
The northern lights or Auroras can be seen for roughly 200 days in a year. You can gaze at the spectacular Auroras while skiing or even dog sledding. Auroras are quite clearly visible in the dark and clear skies. Your chances or spotting Auroras increase as you travel further up towards the north. Auroras can only be spotted in places away from the cities because bright lights of the cities outshine it. The best time to spot the Auroras between 5 pm and 2 am. However, Finland tourism has so much more to offer aside from the stunning auroras.
While you are enjoying the spectacular views of the Auroras, you can also explore the terrain. Finland is an extremely beautiful country blessed with a unique terrain and climate.
