極地之旅 (一) - 尋找北極光

為了尋找北極光,馬虎與友人一行四人由香港出發飛往芬蘭首都赫爾辛基(Helsinki),轉機前往至北極圈以北的拉普蘭(Lapland) Lapland 內有一小鎮名為Kittila ,鎮內有一個Snow Village,我們就在那裏的Snow Hotel落腳,等待北極光的出現。故名思意, Snow Hotel是以雪冰構成,睡床以冰構成,而整座酒店結構則以堆雪造成,酒店內溫度是維持是零度,睡在冰床上要蓋上保抓毛睡袋以保維身體的溫度。
整痤Snow Hotel 都是以雪和冰造成的
Snow Hotel 內有一家 Ice Bar and Restaurant。餐廳內的桌椅全部以冰造成。

觀看北極光必需要在無雲的青天和前往一個較黑的地方,還要配合太陽電粒子的強弱才能看見幸運地,我們一連兩晚也能看到北極光,色彩亮麗的北極光畫破長空,在無際的天空上躍動,場面震撼難忘。在北極圈的傳說中,北極光是狐狸尾巴擺動掀起星塵所致,但實際上是由太陽釋放的粒子與地球表面不同的氣體磨擦而成,而綠色極光便是跟氧氣磨擦的結晶。

北極光在不同時段會呈現不同的顏色。
這是以Canon S90 拍攝的北極光
除了不同顏色,北極光還會呈現不同的形態。
這是以Canon 450D拍攝的 北極光  。
Snow Village內更可坐馴鹿雪撬 (Reindeer Ride),兩小時的旅程馴鹿帶你漫遊Lapland的森林,期間還會在林中停留,在雪地上進行 Camp Fire燒烤,拉普蘭人(Lappish) 更會為遊客在雪地上煎pancake 及煮朱古力熱飲,是個特別的體驗。
乘坐馴鹿雪撬可靜靜地欣賞拉普蘭的景色。
拉普蘭人在雪地上生火,並為遊客煮Pancake。
看北極光是人生難忘的體驗,當你看到絢麗的北極光畫破長空,在你頭頂掠過的那種震撼時,你會發現再寒冷的天氣也是值得的。

下期馬虎將繼續介紹芬蘭的另一景點 - 聖誕老人村。有興趣的朋友,請繼續留意馬虎聊事。

捕捉北極光的所需配備:
  • 相機:馬虎帶了兩部相機,一部 Canon S90,另一部是 Canon 450D。可能馬虎不太懂得操作450D,所以拍攝出來的效果以S90為佳。
  • 腳架。
  • 相機設定:馬虎不是攝影人,相機設定根據友人提議的預設。S90 的設定是曝光時間15秒,光圈 f/4.5,ISO800。450D的設定是曝光時間25秒,光圈 f/5.6,IS800。
  • 足夠的禦寒衣物及手套。
  • 頭燈:方便前往到較黑暗的地方捕足北極光時作照明作。
馬虎貼士:
  • Snow Hotel 從12月開到4月。4月開始溶雪,一般4月初便開始關閉。
  • Snow Hotel 只供「一晚的體驗」,想多留幾天需住在100米以外的Cabin。

  1. 你好!
    我想問你呢間酒店點訂?
    這地方的位置是較北的地方嗎?
    因為大多數人都是去另一個有玻璃屋的渡假村,但那邊價錢好像很貴.
