Northern Lights

The Northern Lights – the Most Spectacular Natural Event in the World

auroraNature offers no spectacle more mysterious and spellbinding than the breathtaking vista of the Northern Lights. There are a variety of travel companies who can organize a Northern Lights adventure for you either to Lapland or to Canada’s northlands. By working this incredible experience into your vacation, you’ll have a unique time, like nothing you have ever experienced before.

The Northern lights have fascinated the Sámi culture for hundreds of years, and it is because of this fascination that there are nearly 20 legends about the existence of these lights. Now, thanks to science, we know that the reason for these spectacular lights is the electrically charged particles in space colliding into the earth’s atmosphere. Nevertheless, the Northern lights remain a very worthwhile experience, one that’s sure to leave you spellbound. You can see the lights personally from a number of places, including several areas in the UK, but for the ultimate experience, there is nothing like participating in an organized trip to Lapland or Canada.

For instance, in Whitehorse, Canada, also referred to as ‘the wilderness city,’ you will see gorgeous scenery no matter where you look, including the Yukon River which courses through the town. Having an incredible environment for many adventurous activities and a great history too, this is a perfect place to mix fun and the Northern lights in all their beauty.

Everything you could want in a truly magical holiday can be found in Whitehorse, as it combines modern conveniences with the natural wilderness, making it the ideal place to engage in adventure or just relax! This place is where you’ll find the well-known Yukon Quest Trail dogsled race each and every year — an event that will be the highlight of your trip.

During your vacation, you can participate in a number of activities, such as touring Whitehorse city, exploring the Yukon Wildlife preserve, snowmobiling, etc. In the meantime, while waiting to see the magnificent Northern Lights, enjoy the great outdoors this city has to offer.

If you are interested in skiing as well as taking in the spectacle of the lights, then consider a trip to the traditional Lapp village of Luosto. Luosto is almost totally surrounded by the fells of central Lapland, and it combines the wilderness, ski resort activities and the warmth and comfort of your personal log cabin or hotel room. People fortunate enough to view the Aurora Borealis all three times will be leaving to go home with a real feeling of awe.

During your trip you may engage in various recreational activities and adventures, such as snowshoeing, going on a husky safari or a trip to the Amethyst mine, or taking a snowmobile to visit “Aurora House” to see the lights. This basically offers you a unique vacation and a fantastic manner in which to enjoy what everything around you has to offer.

From 9pm to 1am is the best time to see the lights, so if you tend to turn in early, you may miss seeing this spectacular event! However, once the spectacle begins, you will be intrigued as the small, stationary glow in the dark sky grows to provide a fantastic display.

Keep in mind that since this is a natural phenomenon there is no guarantee that you will actually be able to see the lights during your vacation, but you will definitely have a trip that you will never forget. Those who are fortunate enough to view the spectacular lights will always remember seeing the lights scamper across the night sky.

Introducing Travel and Photography

Vivid Colors - Travel and Photography 01Do you like travel and photography? We at Oltenia Foto are thankful for people like you who like to take pictures and enjoy the best things in life. Colors, textures, shades, tones and great amounts of contrast make our lives richer and more enjoyable. I realized my love for color watching movies like Oceans 11 – the newer one. How old do you think I am? I also learned of my love for color visiting countries like Mexico, India, Egypt, Russia and Greece. There are so many great colors to discover in the world and so few regularly used. Uniformity has often been the call of the mediocre. Do you know the literal meaning of mediocre? It means a mid-range ochre. Ochre is a pale yellow so as far as color goes mediocre is about as bland as you can get. It’s far from vibrant and far from the pleasure one finds when one is enjoying travel and photography.

A Photo Charge

So, get out there and enjoy traveling the world. Find your bliss in a deep auburn sunset, capture it with your cell phone or SLR camera. Don’t let the moments fade to that ochre that once used to destroy our family photos but now is easily postponed with quality digital printing. Keep up your travel and photography and you may help yourself avoid the painful decay of our limited memories. We focus on so many things each day that it is easy to forget even the most vivid of memories.

Bon Voyage! Don’t forget your camera!
