Kiruna, Swedish Lapland, Sweden

‘This is no ordinary tour!’

The northern part of Scandinavia is an extraordinary place of beauty, intrigue and extremes. Inside the arctic circle, Lapland is an expansive region of snow, reindeer, the Sámi people and the magnificent Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

Traditionally, the Swedish believed the Aurora to be the souls of their ancestors, and something to be somewhat feared. The Finnish believed it to be the tail of the fox, swooshing across the sky. These days we know it to be the interaction of the sun’s radiation with the earth’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. Although we now have this scientific explanation, there is no denying the incredible, uplifting experience of seeing the Aurora….and photographing it!
