    Lovosero is the top destination of Kola Peninsula for Aurora Borealis viewing, there are very high chances to observe it directly at the eco-lodge you stay in! However we recommend to spend at least 3 nights here to maximize the chances of Aurora Borealis viewing, and due to remoteness of the location.
