It is relatively safe to go around in the forests here. There are wild animals in the forests but they escape humans.
If you are planning to go wandering outside the marked trails you should always have adequate map and compass with you.
For longer tours in the forests you should also have enough clothes and food with you because the weather conditions can change rapidly.
The best season to see the Northern Lights is from November to February.
To be able to see the Northen Lights it needs to be dark and the sky needs to be clear. It’s also important that the surroundings are dark, so you need to move away from the lights of the village.
