Writer recommends seeing the sights after travelling to northern Sweden
People planning adventure holidays to Sweden should not visit the Scandinavian country without trying to see the "astonishing" Northern Lights.
Journalist Sarah Sands wrote of her "terrific experience" to the north of Sweden to see the natural sight, also known by its Latin name Aurora Borealis, in the London Evening Standard.
The writer described an experience that was "astonishing beyond dreams", even though she only spent two days in the northern regions of the Swedish country.
"At about 9pm, one of the guides beckoned us outside. We slid down the icy slope to look up at the great Arctic sky. There was a rainbow arc of citrus green which miraculously changed shape," she said.
"There were bright green search-lights and blocks of light and sinuous patterns. I experienced pure delight. Then the lights faded and vanished."
The Aurora Borealis is caused when charged particles collide and are directed by the Earth's magnetic field.
