Written by Frank Olsen:
We are now in Vesterålen, close to the small town of Sortland.. This is not far from the well-known Lofoten Archipelago. This means we enjoy the midnight sun at summertime, but also a period during winter, December – January, when the sun do not raise above the horizon.
I guess some of you know this: Aurora occurs all year around, and as long as it is dark enough, you can see it.
Not until the end of August is it dark enough at night to see the auroras. So, beginning of September you can start looking for it. Even in September, there can be great weather and temperatures.
However, I think February-March probably is the best month for Aurora. Just keep in mind; this is more or less related to Norway conditions. I know Alaska and Canada can be much colder than Norway. So be very aware of your state when you are out in extreme cold. Go back to your car and warm up. (Leave the camera outside)
March is still winter in Arctic, and temperature can drop to -15̊C / 5 ̊F or even lower. In addition, beware of the possibility of snowy weather.
One thing is to predict Aurora activity, but to predict weather is quite another matter… However, March can provide great weather for many days in a row.
Anyway, you should check out weather and forecast before you travel. No use to go long distances if there is a poor weather forecast.
Bring enough warm clothes! In addition, keep some extra clothing in your car.
A field trip can last for several hours. Make sure you have tried the cloths while you still are at home. Just to make sure that all fit.
I guess you are experienced photographers, but anyway:
