The arctic light
Both in the summer and winter time you can feel the special light we have in the north. Often, we can see the northern lights dancing on the sky. And to tell you a secret, the best time to experience the northern lights is in September and October. In January we have the most beautiful sky you can imagine. Without the sun, the sky is painted in an amazing colour palette. In summer time the sun never sets and so it never becomes dark.
