Chasing the Northern Lights

There are some holidays and breaks which are ideally suited to being as mobile as possible, and motorhome hire gives you a complete experience of travel and accommodation combined. Every winter provides the opportunity to experience the Northern Lights – one of the best examples of an experience which is ideally experienced from a motorhome.

Often referred to in the correct terminology as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are one of the most beautiful natural wonders of our world. The magnetosphere conditions are usually perfect for the phenomenon to occur and be visible in upper northern countries in Europe, with Finland, Norway and Sweden being the more popular places to visit for this reason. The best time to visit these countries to view the Northern Lights is usually between December and the end of January. In a fairly rare set of circumstances, most forecasts indicate that the phenomenon should also be visible in Scotland in February 2016.December 5 image

Although forecasts for where and when the Lights will be most visible has become more accurate over the years, it remains the case that absolute precision is just not possible. In order to give yourself the best chance of seeing them, it’s vital that you can travel to the best vantage point at short notice. With a motorhome, this becomes much easier. No matter which of the countries you choose to see the Northern Lights in, your motorhome will allow you to get where you need to be without having any worries around booking accommodation. You have the maximum level of freedom needed to follow and experience the Aurora Borealis.

The motorhome hire services we represent are based at or very close to the major airports in Sweden, Norway and Finland. This enables you to travel to any point at which the Northern Lights are going to be the most visible as soon as you land and have the comfort of knowing that you have somewhere to stay when you get there. This is also true for those of you who are looking to take the rare chance of being able to see the phenomenon in Scotland, with our motorhome hire services being available across the UK as well as mainland Europe.
