We expect the beginning of the heavenly performance, from about 1 to 3 hours;

When the Northern Lights appear, we begin a photo shoot.

*The Northern Lights generally do not appear immediately, this is due to its activity, or to weather conditions. For example, sometimes you have to wait until the clouds disperse.
