Russia Frequently Asked Questions

We help you prepare for your trip and ensure an effortless and enjoyable travel experience.

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon which appear as brilliant displays of lights across the earth’s night sky. These lights are mostly visible at the highest latitudes near the Northern hemisphere and appear as neon glows, moving arcs or as thin clouds in the sky. The word ‘Aurora’ is Latin for sunrise as well as the name of the Roman Goddess of the dawn, and ‘Borealis’ is the Greek name for the north wind.

All right, let’s put our science hats on! The Northern Lights are produced when the solar wind, which is made up of charged particles from the sun interacts with our atmosphere. The charged particles on collision with atoms and molecules in the earth’s atmosphere release little photons of light, which appear as rays of illuminated glowing neon lights like throwing dye in the sky - The Northern Lights. The science behind this phenomenon is indeed very fascinating and we recommend you to experience this in person on a Northern Light tour with Veena World.

The Northern Lights appear in different colors depending on the gases with which the solar particles collide. Generally, they appear in colors of green, yellow, blue, purple, pink, and red. The most common color is green, due to the impact of solar particles with oxygen atoms. Blue, purple, and pink are rarer to see and are associated with solar particles colliding with nitrogen atoms. Red is the rarest color to see and is associated with solar particles hitting oxygen atoms but at a higher altitude above 150 miles.

In order to see aurora, the sky must be dark, clear and with high solar activity. The best time to see the Northern Lights is during the Aurora season that is from late August to March in the Northern Hemisphere. During this time, the Arctic sky is dark enough for the Northern Lights to be visible in the right conditions. One has to be prepared to stay up late to witness the grandeur of the northern lights, as these are best viewed anytime from midnight up to sunrise.

The best places to see the northern lights are countries located in the far northern hemisphere like Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Siberia. In the southern hemisphere this phenomenon is known as Aurora Australis, the southern lights, which are best viewed from Antarctica and parts of New Zealand in the months of March to September.

This fantastic natural display of light can last from 5 minutes to all night long, depending on the magnitude of the incoming solar winds.

The Northern Lights occur so high up in the atmosphere that they don’t pose any threat to people watching them from the ground.

If you are like most of us, you probably want to capture the Northern Lights in pictures, after all just telling friends that you saw something never has quite the same effect as posting your travel pictures on social media. Some tips that we recommend are: A sturdy tripod, a DSLR camera with adjustable manual mode, latest smartphone with a good camera and inbuilt night mode. All cameras and lenses will give different results, so a bit of trial and error is needed to find out what works best for you. It’s also important to remember that no two auroras are the same. This means that settings which work one night may not work the next. But don’t let that put you off; experimenting with different settings and seeing the range of results they produce is all part of the fun. But remember to ditch the camera once in a while and remember to take it all in!

The Northern Lights have been the source of many myths and legends since ancient times. Some of the most popular are: Most of the Eskimo ethnical groups in North America and Greenland believed that the Northern Lights were the spirits of the dead. Scandinavian settlers, such as those belonging to the Norse culture, believed that they were a bridge connecting the earth and the home of the Viking gods. Sweden sees the Aurora as a sign of good news and prosperity, promising good harvests for farmers and great catches for local fishermen. The Icelandic people have associated the lights with childbirth, believing that the lights would relieve the pain of delivery. The Chukchi, an indigenous people living much further east from Murmansk in Russia, believe the lights are an area of heaven rarely seen, the home of those who died a violent death. Old Russian texts from the 15th century describe the northern lights as heavenly armies fighting. Some believed that the aurora was a massive fire dragon who would descend to earth while the men of the village were away in order to allure the womenfolk.

Of all the natural phenomena the world has to offer, the Northern Lights are probably the most spectacular, because to see them you need to be in the right place at the right time. This very nature of the event makes them more mystical and alluring. It is ideal for those with a passion for exploration and is bound to leave you with a feeling of accomplishment. Keeping this in mind, our expert team at Veena World has specially curated Family and Women’s special tours to Iceland and Russia for all of those wishing to tick off this once in a lifetime experience.

Russia due to its location, with the Arctic Circle crossing a large part of the country provides an ideal point to view the Northern Lights. Russia has many hotspots to witness this phenomenon and amongst them, Murmansk is one of the best ones. Most impressively, Murmansk is distinguished as the largest city above the Arctic Circle, making it a one-of-a-kind destination in the Polar Regions. When this experience is combined with the visit to Moscow and St. Petersburg, it will turn out be a great combination to explore.
