The blazing northern lights in the Lapland sky are an unforgettable experience for any traveler. The northern lights are caused by charged particles in the solar winds hitting Earth’s atmosphere. Travelers come from as far as Asia to see Lapland’s unique natural fireworks. These days, capturing a memory of the northern lights is accessible to almost everyone. The latest generation of sensitive DSLR cameras as well as new mobile phones have made photographing the northern lights easier than ever.

Pello is located in the beautiful Torne valley, in Finnish Lapland. The Arctic Circle passes through Pello, making it the perfect place to capture the “aurora borealis”. Because Pello is a rural municipality it does not suffer from light pollution, making it easy to observe this unique natural phenomenon even from the town centre.

Northern Lights safaris & excursions are offered in Pello by the company Johka. Read  more HERE about their aurora hunting.
