About this book

An updated second edition of Bradt's practical guide to the best places to view the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights are one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomena, arguably the greatest light show you'll ever see. They are also one of the major tourist draws of the Arctic and sub-Arctic winter. Bradt Travel Guide: Northern Lights covers 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. It also details the best locations form which the aurora can be viewed, covering, in Europe, Scandinavia, Lapland, Iceland and Greenland. New for this second edition is coverage of viewing points in Canada and Alaska. In addition, Bradt Travel Guide: Northern Lights provides information on tour operators offering northern lights packages. Bradt's Northern Lights is the only guidebook on the market that caters to the large number of people whose dream is to see the aurora borealis.
