The cold Arctic climate demands extra warm clothing, especially since you will be standing still outside and watching the northern lights for extended periods.
- You will need long johns and a long sleeved undershirt, warm sweater, scarf, hat and gloves.
- Choose footwear somewhat larger than normal to allow space for insulating air and socks.
- Finally, wear your warmest jacket as an outer layer. Loft and air are what really insulate against the cold.
- If possible, do not shower or take a sauna prior to going up to the Aurora Sky Station. And don’t use water-based moisturisers on your face, since they can cause frostbite.
