He's the Pelé of photographing northern lights. Per Lundström, a Luleå local, knows all the secret hot spots in Luleå for catching the northern lights. Below, he reveals his top 3 spots for photographing northern lights.

1. Gäddvik
"Perfect place. Just outside Luleå, a couple of minutes by car, and this little village has everything you need. It's dark and you have a clear horizon to the north. Go to the little cabin by the pike fishing-museum."

2. Ormberget mountain
"A classic. This is where most of the Luleå locals go to wait for the majestic lights. The perks are the lack of artificial light in the area and you can have the city centre of Luleå in the pic. There's also a shelter where you can make a fire"

3. Sinksundet
"In the same area as Ormberget, just keep going north on the road towards Bensbyn, you'll stumble upon the cozy villages of Sinksundet. Here's a clear horizon, a dark place and a beautiful lake that mirrors the northern lights"
