Springtime landscape in the Arctic

Early-spring in the Arctic is fantastic. During the day, ice blue skies stretch endlessly away over the lakes and forests of Finland, the mountains of Sweden, the fjords of Norway and any number of glacial features in Iceland.

The landscapes are often bathed in that crisp, clear light and temperatures gradually improve as March grows older. This weather is very often associated with clearer skies which increase the chances of seeing the Northern Lights considerably.

Northern Lights in spring

From the Aurora hunter's point of view, it is often said that the period around the spring equinox (approximately 21 March) brings greater solar activity which results in an increased frequency of Auroral displays. Couple that with clearer skies and you begin to understand why March and very early-April are possibly amongst the best times to chase the Northern Lights.

The only downside is that come late March and into early April, the spectacular daylight hours lengthen so you may have to stay up a little later during your Northern Lights hunts. However, when you’ve got the chance to witness this phenomenal natural occurrence, we don’t think you’ll be complaining at a late night!

Snow conditions in spring

Another tick for spring in the Arctic is the snow conditions. Having fallen all winter, the covering is at its absolute best making it ideal for dog sleddingsnowmobilingcross-country skiing and other popular Nordic activities.

Plus, the increasing temperatures and longer daylight hours means a more comfortable and longer window to play in the winter wonderland surroundings.
