The Northern Lights

Kilpisjärvi is one of the best places in the world to observe and photograph the northern lights and tourists from all over the world travel here to admire the northern lights. The season begins in late August or early September and continues until the end of April. In the autumn when lakes, rivers and ponds are still free from ice, the reflections of the northern lights from the calm surface of the water sets the scene for beautiful pictures. And in the winter, fells with snow-covered trees create a truly unique environment for photography.
