Call them the Northern Lights, aurora borealis, skyfire or the burning from the North! This northern natural light display has as many names as there are legends of its creation. From the scientific perspective, the auroras result from disturbances in our magnetosphere caused by solar wind. Finland, and especially Lapland, is a favorable place to spot the Lights, which may occur up to every other night.
However, sometimes the phenomenon is shy and remains unseen. In that case, you can get a taste of the experience from the Northern Lights selection of gifts and souvenirs from Piece of Lapland. You can find peace of mind and comfort by sipping coffee from an aurora coffee mug, exclaiming over an aurora photo on your wall, or wrapping yourself up tight with one of our Northern Lights blanket.
