North Adventure in Alta

Postcards from Alta: Will I See the Northern Lights?

The Northern Lights has become quite a popular winter attraction all over the north, here.  People visit us from all around the world (even folks from faraway lands like “southern Norway”) hoping to see the dancing, swirling show.

It’s a natural phenomenon, as everyone knows, and everyone also understands that natural things can be unpredictable. But that doesn’t stop us from really NEEDING it to appear anyway. And when we really want something unpredictable to be guaranteed, we sometimes use a lot of extra energy on planning and guessing even if it doesn’t help much.

It’s not bad to plan, but at the same time you need to not lose focus on what will give you the best chance to have a good time while you are on holiday. That, more than anything, is the important part (at least from my point of view).

So to help with that, Jon has made another “Postcards” video that talks about the hunt for the Northern Lights. Along with his usual, puzzling sense of humor, he covers some of the things that help you increase your chances of an aurora sighting, as well as some advice on how to actually have fun at the same time.  Take a look!

Also, if you haven’t seen the first two “Postcards From Alta” videos, make some popcorn and keep watching:
