    Stunning. It is one of my ambitions to see the Northern lights - preferably before I reach the grand age of fifty.

    You can see the Aurora from when the nights starts to get dark really. The autumn up to christmass is nice. But the weather tends to be very unstable, with lots of clouds. There is more chances of clear skies in January/february/March as the wather tend to stabilize with clear then.
