You can read about it, see pictures of it, image it, but nothing will truly prepare you for the midnight light! Paddle. Hike. Camp. At three o’clock in the morning you’ll be smiling as the sun still shines in the arctic night. Don’t forget to set the time in the camera and take a picture! Otherwise, who will believe you?

Look up and see a dazzling panorama. Swirling bands of pale green, red and purple dancing across the darkening late summer sky will hold you spellbound. Watch from the bow of an expedition cruise ship or through the door of your tent. Whichever you prefer, find yourself a
front row seat to nature’s dramatic sky spectacle.
