Northern Lights

Greetings everyone...

I plan to visit Murmansk on January 2018, is there any possibility for me and friends to watch the northern lights? How many days should I spend and any recommendation of accommodation in Murmansk which I will get more possibility to see the lights?

Many thanks in advance - much appreciated!

There is a possibility to see Nothern Lights, if you will be lucky... 2 or 3 ddays is enourg to cover Murmansk sites and go around, but the Lights are not guaranteed at all - it's Mother Nature will. Lights are delivered right up to the sky over your head - any accomodation with a window will allow you to see them, if they happen. Going out to the street would increase your viewing horizon...
