What are the Northern Lights?
The beautiful Northern Lights occur when charged solar particles are sent plummeting towards the earth. Some of these particles manage to enter the magnetosphere, creating the light effect we love watching on the ground. The strongest Northern Lights activity occurs after solar storms.
Chasing the Northern Lights - Why choose Reisafjord Hotel?
When it comes to the Northern Lights, Reisafjord is extremely central. Located midway between the major towns of Tromsø and Alta, you can land at the local airport just 1 km from the hotel you will stay at and set off on a Northern Lights safari straight from the hotel. Northern Lights experiences are even better when you can enjoy a delicious dinner beforehand and sleep well at our hotel afterwards. The chances of experiencing the Northern Lights here cannot be any higher given the diversity. We can head into the mountains, out to the coast or into the valleys.
