The Northern Lights:

The Northern Lights - nature's own light show - are solar winds that meet the atmosphere in a zone around the magnetic North Pole, forming arches, waves and curls of light moving across the sky, with sudden rays of light shooting down from space.

The Northern Lights are visible between November and March when the sky is clear, depending on the Northern Lights activity.

 

The Arctic city of Tromso offers a maximum of Northern Lights activity, ideally located in the middle of the Northern Lights zone
