«Is the Northern Lights on?»

Yes – definitely!

From the end of August, when the nights start to get darker, until beginning of April, when the opposite takes place, Senja is the perfect spot to explore both the mysteries of Lady Aurora, as well as all other Arcitc Light Phenomena.

To see the Northern Light, three things must take place at the same time: It has to be dark. The sky has to be clear or at least have clear openings between clouds. And there has to be activity.

Best tip: Have a look often! Sometimes it only shows for a few minutes, and just as often it will come back later the same evening or night.
Another tip: Move around Senja as conditions often vary a lot.

Lighten up your life and visit Senja!
