Aurora Borealis at 69th parallel
Catching Northern Lights above Murmansk

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is a unique natural phenomenon, the dancing fluorescent ribbons that light up the night sky.
Living on the Kola Peninsula we have an opportunity to observe one of nature’s most spectacular phenomena more than 150 nights during a year. You can see this most impressive light show – lasting from a few minutes to several days.

 

This winter and next are predicted to be the best for Aurora seasons for many years. Some scientists describe this period as Solar Maximum. It means the sunspot activity is at its height. The sunspots produce solar flares creating the northern lights when they hit the earth’s atmosphere. The Northern Lights are usually seen in September and April in the sky above the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions what makes the Northern Russia and especially the Kola Peninsula ideal location for observing it.

We cannot create Aurora Borealis or to book it from The God as well as to guarantee the clear cloudless sky. You need fortune to catch the stroke of luck. It is like with real hunting – you never know if you come back with a trophy. We can do a broadcasting but not earlier than 1-2 days in front with probability of Northern Lights appearing of 90%. So, we offer our tours without reservation of our guide for Aurora Borealis watching. If you want to be more sure to see Northern Lights you can make preliminary reservation for Aurora Borealis Night watching accompanied with our guide. In this case if there is the good broadcasting for Northern Light in the sky for the coming night the guide comes to the hotel to collect you for the "hunting". The guide brings you to a place where the Northern Lights can appear in the sky with 90% probability.
 

Beside it - skiing and snowmobiling as well as sightseeing of the specific area named Kola Peninsula.
 

The Solar Maximum happens about every 11 years. Do not miss this unique opportunity!
