Summer in Scandinavia, the months of July and August, is a great time to visit. At this time of year, you’re more likely to have pleasant weather and nature comes alive with locals as well as travelers heading outside to experience the great outdoors While summertime may be a great time to visit the Nordic countries, it is not the best time to see the northern lights.
This is especially true of the northern regions, like Northern Norway, as well as Finish and Swedish Lapland, where the sun doesn’t fully set during the summer months.
Visiting between October and March, also known as aurora borealis season, gives you the best chance of seeing this spectacular light show.
