Earth’s magnetic field is crucial to all life —protecting us from solar winds and radiation. The Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) allow us to see Earth’s invisible magnetic field, allowing scientists to better understand how it’s changing over time. Much like Solar activity, the Northern Lights follow a similar 11-year cycle of high then low activity. We’re currently entering a cycle of low activity which means the lights will become rarer than usual. Paired with the growing levels of cloud cover driven by climate change, we face a very real possibility that the Northern Lights will become obscured from our line of sight.
The Northern Lights capsule
Inspired by the vivid colors that dance across our northern skies, our Northern Lights capsule shines a light on the beauty of these ethereal tones. The colors we see on the ground are determined by which particles are interacting—oxygen appears as vivid green light, while nitrogen produces cosmic pinks and purples. Our limited-edition range of tracksuits has been created in five unique colorways, capturing the full spectrum of the Aurora. Choose from Solar Pink, Northern Green, Aurora Green, Galaxy Pink and Ultraviolet.
See the Northern Lights in person
While catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights is set to become more difficult, it’s by no means impossible. Here are the top 5 places in the world to still see the Northern Lights along with the capsule colorway they inspired.
1. Aurora Green—Tromsø, Norway
Located more than 300km north of the Arctic Circle, the historic city of Tromsø is uniquely located to showcase the Northern Lights without needing to trek deep into the wilderness.
2. Galaxy Pink—Inari, Finland
In Finnish Lapland, head to Inari, a small village widely regarded to be the heart of traditional Sami culture. With miles of wild forest dotted with wooden cabins, Inari is also one of the best places to see the Northern Lights as the Sami people have for centuries.
3. Northern Green—Abisko, Sweden
North of the Arctic Circle, the Swedish village of Abisko boasts almost zero light pollution— perfect for Aurora-spotting. Spend an evening admiring the sweeping starlit views from the Aurora Sky Station, a 20-minute chairlift ride from Abisko up the mountain.
4. Ultraviolet—Jökulsárlón, Iceland
A trip to Jökulsárlón in Iceland means admiring glacial lagoons in the daytime and watching the Northern Lights at night. The ice-blue glaciers help reflect the colors across the water, creating a mesmerising mirror-image effect.
5. Solar Pink—Yellowknife, Canada
Head over to Canada’s Northwest Territories in fall or winter to see the Aurora from a new perspective. Yellowknife, the region’s capital, has become a Northern Lights hotspot thanks to its abundance of long, clear nights and pristine wilderness.
