Northern Lights Holidays

Catch a glimpse of the extraordinary and dazzling dancing lights of the remarkable, multi-coloured spectacle that we know as the Northern Lights. Truly one of Earth’s most awe-inspiring sights, the Aurora Borealis has to be experienced to be believed.

For the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights you need to travel towards the Arctic. In Europe, the Lights are most commonly spotted in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, and occasionally appear in northern Scotland, while in North America you might witness Aurora activity in northern Canada and Alaska.

Aurora activity is unpredictable and very dependent on weather conditions, so make sure you plan some other activities to keep you occupied during the hours of hopeful waiting. Take a thrilling husky or snowmobile ride through snow-dusted landscapes, go on a whale watching cruise or gaze in awe at some of the world’s tallest waterfalls. You could opt to base your holiday in cities such as Reykjavik, where you can set off on a Northern Lights tour one evening, and spend your remaining time discovering some of Iceland’s other natural wonders, such as the world-famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa.

Go in search of the mysterious spectacle of the Aurora Borealis in the land of fire and ice – Iceland.  Discover its startling surrounding landscape of smouldering volcanoes, waterfalls, bubbling thermal pools, geysers and glaciers. Cruise through the dramatic landscapes of the fjords in Norway, stepping ashore to explore remote towns by day and then returning to the ship to gaze skywards in search of the magical illuminations by night. Race through the snowy wilderness of Lapland for a chance to witness the captivating 'flames' of the Aurora.

Book your Northern lights holiday with us and take the chance to see this stunning the natural scenery alongside enjoying a plethora of winter activities.
