The Northern Lights Tour

(A08)

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a spectacular multi –coloured natural phenomenon that often dances across the Arctic sky.  On this trip we leave the lights of the city behind to go into the countryside to hunt for the Northern Lights. The destination for the trip varies according to weather conditions and the most favourable conditions for seeing the lights. Northern lights are caused by particles from the sun being flung out into the space, so called solar winds and clouds. These clouds assemble near the poles and when these clouds of electromagnetic particles collide with the gasses in the Earths atmosphere, the mystical lights of the Aurora Borealis are created. Particular weather conditions lend themselves to spotting Northern Lights more easily, usually on very clear, calm and cold evenings. The excursion will not run if the weather does not permit.
