Nothing compares to the Northern Lights
Luleå is a great place in Swedish Lapland to see the northern lights! In the Autumn the darkness returns enabling us to again see the aurora borealis. Our coastal climate has statistically low cloud cover which improves our chances of seeing the lights.
As you will see in the pictures in the gallery, Luleå has spectacular northern lights shows and we know of some great place overlooking the sea where the cloud cover is often less and we have a really low horizon looking to the north, maximizing our chances of seeing the northern lights.
The best time to see the northern lights is from the end of August, when the darkness returns to Luleå and Swedish Lapland for a few hours each night, through to late March when the nights again start to be light again.
We often see great shows in late August and September and at this time of year the temperatures are milder than in the depth of winter making staying out late looking for the northern lights a little less challenging.
In the winter we can provide warm outer winter clothing and hats and gloves to protect us from the chilly winter nights. The tours are conducted by a well known local northern lights photographer who has taken all the northern lights photos page in the gallery above.
