Northern Lights

Hi! We are a couple coming from Latvia to celebrate my birthday on the 30.12. and we are looking for someone to pick us up from the hotel in Oulu and drive us to see the northern lights (maybe to the Northern Ostrobothnia). For a payment, of course. Could you recommend someone? We want to do this trip at 21-22h on the 30.12! Thanks :)

Are you aware that the aurora borealis occurs only occasionally when conditions are right? The chances of it appearing at a set time and date are very, very poor. Do you really want to hire someone to drive you around dreary countryside at night under a cloudy sky? I suggest you re-think your trip, with the aurora as a possible added bonus.

If the lights appear, you can easily watch them e.g. in Nallikari beach in Oulu, not much artificial light pollution there.

Furthermore Oulu is the 'capital' of a large province called Northern Ostrobothnia. You can drive nearly 300 km from here (to the northeast) and you'd still be in Northern Ostrobothnia.
