Lapland is one of the best places in the world to view the Northern lights. While they can be viewed from different cities, villages, resorts, or the middle-of-no-where in the wilderness, no one likes to stand outside in sub-zero temperatures and stare at the sky not knowing if they will appear, right? So a good way to see the auroras is your time is short in Lapland is to secure the services of a local guide. Locals know some of the best spots for good views and usually also how to read aurora forecasts. Even more, they often have warm winter clothes/suits that customers can borrow for the tour as the temperatures can get very very cold (-35C!).
