About this book

An updated third edition of Bradt's practical guide to the best places to view the Northern Lights, the only guidebook that caters to the large number of people whose dream is to see the aurora borealis.

Included is information on everything from how to photograph the aurora to what to wear, and how to understand northern lights forecasting, as well as the science behind the aurora and the auroral oval. Also detailed are the best locations from which the aurora can be viewed, covering, in Europe, Scandinavia, Lapland, Iceland and Greenland, and in North America, Canada and Alaska. In addition, Bradt Travel Guide: Northern Lights provides information on tour operators offering northern lights packages.

New for this third edition is coverage of Ivalo / Inari (Nellim & Muotka) and Iso Syote in Finland; in Sweden both the permanent and seasonal ice hotels, as well as Kiruna Town Hall; in Canada Blachford Lake; and in Iceland new accommodation options. The Northern Lights are one of the major tourist draws of the Arctic and sub-Arctic winter and the world's most spectacular natural phenomena, arguably the greatest light show you'll ever see.
