Aurora Borealis shines red, green, or purple in the northern hemisphere. Its presence is one of the remarkable natural phenomena and spectacles of our world.

The magical, colorful lights remind us of the earth's strong magnetic field. A protective magnetic field is viewed as essential for life, not only on our planet. The further north you travel, the higher the chance of seeing the aurora. Above the Arctic Circle (66 ° 33'N), one can experience the mysteriously beautiful and gracefully dancing lights most intensely. Norway and Svalbard are the best destinations to see the Aurora Borealis.
