The odds of seeing the Northern Lights have just improved. Holidaymakers and tourists alike can now get a text message warning them when to look up.

Rob Stammes and Therese van Nieuwenhoven, who run the Lofoten Polar Light Centre (Lofoten Polarlyssenter) on Laukvik Island, have launched the service for all their visitors.

They say their instruments can even forecast when the phenomenon will next appear.

“We’re also more than happy to give advice on how best to photograph the Northern Lights,” Stammes tells VG.

The service lasts as long visitors are in the Lofoten area, and is available between September and April.
