A bite of Dubai

Northern lights

On cloudless nights in February and March, greenish-yellow, red or violet lights curl and stretch across the midnight skies in Finnish Lapland. The lights are never the same - you might see ghoulish emerald-green patterns invade the sky one evening, and a rainbow of red, fuchsia, turquoise and amethyst the next. The best place to see the Northern Lights is an area in northwest Finland. For more info, visit www.lapland.fi/en/travel.
