Experience beautiful and vibrant northern lights! To fully appreciate the glory and grandeur of this celestial display,  you have to settle beneath the ever-changing lights and watch them curve and curl, slither and flicker. Dress warmly, plan to watch the sky between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. local time, although an active period can occur anytime during the dark hours. Active periods are typically about 30 minutes long and occur every two hours if the activity is high. You can have an aurora experience without even leaving your room or cottage if you choose so. Winter and springtime are generally less cloudy than autumn in and around the northern auroral zone, so a trip between December and April makes sense.
