Head out into the frozen darkness of Swedish Lapland‘s winter to catch the breathtaking but elusive spectacle of the Northern Lights. Caused by solar particles hitting the earth’s atmosphere, each hue – from pale green to dark pink – is produced by a different element. Give yourself a week or two for the best chance of seeing them; pitch a tent, bring a sturdy tripod and keep your fingers crossed (inside a good pair of mittens) for cloudless skies.
