About this book

The northern lights are 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, to how the forecast works. It offers advice on the best European countries in which to see them – and why – and provides information on tour operators offering northern lights packages.

"Bradt has published the first-ever Northern Lights travel guide, which answers those how, what, where and when questions posed by travellers in search of the dazzling atmospheric phenomenon."
TNT Magazine

"Northern Lights gives some good advice on the best countries and destinations from which to view the aurora borealis nd there are good tips on what you should wear."
