Northern Lights at 69 Parallel

The Northern Lights are a unique natural phenomenon, flashes of light in the night sky. The show can last from several minutes to several days. But the Arctic is not only the Northern Lights, it is also the icy waves of the Arctic Ocean, endless snow fields, cities illuminated by the colorful lights in the polar night, Saami sledges pulled by reindeers, fluffy clever Huskies, snowmobile safaris in the majestic winter Khibiny Mountains… The North is calling you!
