No one can guarantee a sighting of the aurora borealis, but this superb winter destination really boost your chances. Destination Snowman is right in the middle of the aurora oval at 69oN. The climate is cold and dry with perfect conditions for snow, ice and Northern Light. Half an hour from the ocean the surrounding mountains of Målselv valley keep the skies almost clear and the light pollution is next to nothing. The valley has more nights of clear skies than anywhere in Europe, those maxi mills the chances to see the Aurora.
In Snowman you can choose between many ways of hunting the Aurora, out in the wilderness, up in the mountain, down in the valley, at the seaside – the beauty of the nature is stunning.
