I was researching Aurora, and it seems, that during March and October, chance of Aurora is higher. I understand it will depend upon sun activity though.
Most sites suggest as you go 100-150kms inland, chance of clear skies get better.
What do you advise. We are targetting first week of october
Here are my questions
1. In the wilderness, away from coast, which places can be for stay. WE just want a small clean room with attached bathroom for around less than 100$/day
2. Will we get fall colors
3. We will be driving, what desitnation do you recommend within 2 days of driving (I think 500kms/day is doable) from the capital city?
Alternatively, we can take an overnight train and rent a car from the destination which will work out more expensive, so most probably it will be drive
4. IS it safe to take your car to remote location at night for photography?
5. If we start our driving from the capital on Monday morning, and then have to be back on monday night the next week, we will get 5 days to explore lapland, what place do you recommend as base from where we can undertake short day trips
The focus is nature, forests, lakes and if possible glaciers.
