Recommendations for the journey to hunt for the Northern Lights (Aurora)

The Northern Lights (Aurora) can be observed on the territory of the Murmansk region from September to April. Shine can not be ordered in advance. No one will give you a 100% guarantee of the appearance of the Aurora. If any company promises you 100% of the appearance of the Northern Lights (Aurora), know this is a scam. The appearance of the Northern Lights (Aurora) depends on solar energy and it is almost impossible to predict when this energy will be much. Usually there is a short-term forecast for the month, but no more. Aurora may be in the sky, but due to bad weather and a lot of clouds, it will be difficult to see.
. But our experienced guides will do everything possible so that you can enjoy this amazing spectacle. Therefore, local guides are a big plus. Never try to rent a car in the north by yourself. Most of the roads in the Murmansk region are covered with ice and snow. The road is very slippery. You have absolutely no experience driving a car on a slippery road. Do not put your life in danger.
