Northern Lights

NordlysDancing waves of green and red light across the starlit skies, seeing the northern lights is a truly magical experience.

Northern lights are in short electric particles from the sun hitting the earth’s atmosphere sending out rays of coloured light. Most common is green, but sometimes the sky can look spectacular in red, violet or white light.

A display can last from as little as a couple of minutes to up to three hours and be everything from a light shimmer across the sky to a dramatic colour storm above.

To see the Aurora Borealis it needs to be clear skies, and dark. The lights are easier to see if you are in a place where there is low levels of air pollution and little light. Head for the countryside or the mountains to get the best views.
