I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights. Just one of those things I have always wanted to do. I am fortunate enough to have seen the Southern Cross – laying on the ice on the Antarctic Peninsula one night surrounded by scurrying penguins (do penguins scurry?) but have never seen the mystical magnetic forces that are the Aurora Borealis. I don’t pretend to understand the science behind them and it doesn’t really matter.
On my one trip to the Arctic Circle the conditions were perfect for them - mid-January, no artificial light to ruin the effect (not that there are any great metropolis in northern Finland anyway) and a beautiful clear sky. I sat up through the night and watched....nothing. Still the experience was mesmerising in its own way just for the peace and night-time scenery.
Last weekend Joanna Lumley also went in search of the Northern Lights for UK television. The power of the celebrity I supposed...they appeared for her. If you fancy trying to see this incredible phenomena then you could take our NEW Husky Sled Adventure to northern Sweden where there is a good chance of spotting them and an absolutely guaranteed chance to have fun husky sledding, cross country-skiing and snowshoeing amidst some of the most pristine and magical scenery to be found anywhere.
