Land of the Northern Light

Trying to describe an aurora is relatively simple, there is a dancing light in the sky caused by solar radiation reacting with our atmosphere.

However, trying to describe the feeling and experience of the Northern Lights is next to impossible.

It is a spriritual experience that really makes you stop in your tracks and feel humbled by the forces of nature. We can never get enough. No matter how many times the aurora play in the sky above the Guesthouse we can not help but stop and take time to enjoy the show. It is an experience we wish everyone could experience.

It is very hard to predict when the coveted Aurora borealis will show up and illuminate the dark sky, but in winter, when it’s really cold and clear we have the best chances up here in the Arctic. Sometimes the conditions are perfect and we get a magical show and sometimes the mystic lights elude us.
Either way spending time in the arctic night is something we think everyone should try at least once.
The complete silence and the dark out in the wild, far away from disturbing citylights, is a breathtaking experience.
