Winter vacations and auroras in Ylläs

Hello guys! In this episode of our Lapland Travels we are going to visit Ylläs. Situated amidst the 7 beautiful fells, it is one of the most picturesque areas in Finnish Lapland.

Are Auroras ending in Lapland?

Hello my fellow Aurora hunters and friends! I admit, it is a bit stupid title for an article. However, lately, I just keep hearing these rather anxious questions: “Are the Auroras ending in Lapland?” Or… “Is 20xx the last year for Auroras“?

Aurora Borealis, start of the season 2016–17!

I love hunting for Aurora Borealis on the August nights.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not afraid of cold and have been hunting for auroras at temperatures below –30°C. At this point the equipment starts failing but the man still persists! Still,  keeping yourself warm while waiting for...
