Can you guarantee that I will see some Northern Lights during my stay?
Kakslauttanen is one of the best places in the world to see the magical glow of the Northern Lights. The season lasts from late August to late April. We provide the perfect opportunity for observing Aurora Borealis as the season is long, there is virtually no light pollution and very few trees obscuring the sky nearby. And naturally the view from our Glass Igloos and Kelo-Glass Igloos is unbeatable. However, we cannot guarantee Northern Lights or any other natural phenomenon. There are many things that affect the visibility of the Northern Lights like magnetic activity, position of the sun and cloudiness of the sky. However, we can give you a few tips. The lights might unexpectedly appear and just as suddenly vanish any time from just after sunset to just before dawn. They can last for 5 minutes or they can last for the whole night. Even if you are not staying in a Glass Igloo you can and you should go outside when it gets dark, just dress warmly. Finnish Meteorologic Institute that has real time info and predictions of the Northern Lights, please see http://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/auroras-and-space-weather. Aurora Borealis are visible from late August till late April.
