Adventure Holidays to see the Northern Lights

The breathtaking Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are one of natures most awe-inspiring shows, but to see the Northern Lights is not an easy thing. Here are a few hints on when and where to see them. An Exodus adventure holiday isn't a bad place to start.

They can be seen as far south as Scotland, but the best locations for sightings lie in a wide ring that more or less follows the Arctic Circle. Think Iceland, Greenland, North Norway, Sweden, Finland, Canada and Alaska.

The ‘season’ runs from October to March. Within this window the slightly better months for activity are October, February and March. During periods of high solar activity (not forecastable) they can often be seen every night, but the sky has to be clear of cloud cover of course, and you need to be away from other light sources.
