Where and how you can enjoy the Northern Lights

The Northern Lights are one of the biggest natural phenomenon on Earth and this year, according to forecasts of NASA, this winter will have another solar maximum, which means increased cosmic activity and better chances to see these famous ethereal illuminations. You need to certainly travel on the northern tip and you will have to close dwellings in time, as the area can be characterized, in terms of weather conditions, a little inhospitable. You have to know where to stay in order to make sure that apart from this magical natural phenomenon, you will enjoy a few hours of warmth as well.

Bubbles are heated and large enough to fit a double bed and a bathroom that you may be lying under the duvet and your chance to watch the celestial dome! During the day, you can go sledding or fishing through the ice and learn all about the culture of the Sami.
