Though the snowy wildernesses of Lapland are widely famed for the northern lights, stealing the limelight each winter, the aurora borealis also appears regularly, and just as intensely, over the northern Murmansk region of Russia. Murmansk is located above the Arctic Circle, close the Russian border with Norway and Finland. Every night between December and February there are good opportunities to go out and hunt for the northern lights (weather permitting).
If you're travelling to Moscow or St Petersburg in the winter, we recommend you consider including a 4-day add-on to Murmansk for your chance to see the spectacular northern lights.
