Northernlight tour

In the end of the summer and the beginning of the fall the daylight shortens and it is possible again to see the northern lights, also called Aurora Borealis.

What we enjoy most is traveling to a beautiful spot with a great view and watching the northern lights. It is a unique experience to watcht the skies for northern lights and make a fire while having a warm drink. Making beautiful pictures along the way.
To make the adventure unforgettable it is possible to stay in a tent and sleep under the northern lights. We guide this tour and have all the available materials to make this happen. Just bring your own camera to take home those unforgettable pictures!

Because the northern lights are a natural phenomenon that are predictable just a few days in advance you can book this tour while you are staying with us.

How the northernlights are predicted

Northern lights appear when solar flares travel to earth and interfere earth’s magnetic field. The chance for seeing the northernlights is predicted and called Kp-index. This is a combined index that take in account the amount of solar flares and the magnetic field of the earth.  The kp index has a scale from 1 to 9 where 1 is the weakest view of the northernlights and 9 is the scale for the most spectacular and rarest sight of the northernlights.
To give an impression of the Kp index. When all the conditions for northernlights are just right, the northern lights should be visable with Kp3 here in Rentjärn. The best conditions are a dark, cold and clear night with low humidity in the air. When it is Kp 5 and it is a clear dark night the northernlights should be visable in Rentjärn.

The information about the northernlights is online available a few days in advance, a tour can be booked when staying with us or a few days in advance before staying with us.

Photographing the northernlights

We advise you to look at the right settings for your camera that are needed for taking pictures of the northernlights. Not every camera is capable of taking fotographs of the northernlights, it would be a bit disappointing to notice that at the last moment.
