Different Ways to Experience The Northern Lights

Experiencing the Northern Lights is one of the most amazing things you can do in nature. The colorful display that lights up the black sky is a truly awe-inspiring spectacles and will leave you with impressions and memories you will never forget! Luckily, Norway is a prime location for seeing these frail rays of beauty.

When the solar winds meet the atmosphere around the magnetic north pole, the phenomenon known as Aurora Borealis is created. When this meeting occurs waves, arches and curls of light move across the sky, and sudden rays of light shoot down from space. This phenomenon is more commonly referred to as The Northern Lights!

Norway is one of the prime locations to experience the Northern Lights and Fjord Tours offers loads of different ways to see them. Check out our exciting list of activities and tours below and find the perfect way for you to experience the Northern Lights!
