Northern Lights Holidays

The enigmatic Aurora Borealis have been shrouded in mystery for many years and, understandably, their magnificence has brought about numerous myths and legends. More informally known as the Northern Lights, the Aurora are most often witnessed dancing across the darkened skies of Arctic regions. The presence of the dazzling Northern Lights phenomena has an enchanting effect on their audience as they radiate an eerie glow across the wintry landscape. We have a great selection of tours which take you to stunning locations where you will have the best possible chances of witnessing the Aurora.

On our Northern Lights holidays you can also incorporate exciting activities into your itinerary. There are optional activities as well as pre-planned excursions so you can take advantage of leisure time and choose how to spend Northern Lights holidays. Scandinavia is beautiful all year round but it is particularly picturesque during the winter months when the landscapes are coated in a thick blanket of pristine snow and impressive snow sculptures adorn the trees’ branches. Combine Northern Lights holidays with thrilling pursuits such as snowmobiling, husky safaris and reindeer sled rides and experience the unspoilt countryside in style.
