The Northern light season begins in late September and continues till about late March, however, the best time to see the magic spectacle in Norway is the dark season between December and January. The greatest occurrence is observed during winter polar nights along the coasts of Tromsø and Finnmark counties. Though winter darkness often allows one to see the lights 24 hours long, the famous Aurora Borealis appears mostly at night.
