Europe : Northern Lights

Discover the wonders of the Aurora on our Europe Northern Lights breaks

Seeing the Northern Lights is a truly amazing experience. There is something very magical about watching the ribbons of colour wave across inky, black skies. Those who have experienced the phenomenon refer to it as a somewhat dreamlike experience, it’s as though you can’t quite believe your eyes, as if you’re watching a film or some kind of amazing man-made light show.

So where can you go to search for the mystical Aurora? Simply book one of our amazing winter holidays in northern Europe and Northern Lights hunting will be an integral part of your fabulous winter getaway.

Wonderful Finland

Finland is a really great place to see the Northern Lights and enjoy an amazing array of winter activities including dog sledding, snowmobiling and much, much more. You can combine your Northern Lights hunting with a trip to see Santa; spend a night in a glass igloo, scouring the skies from the comfort of your bed or even sleep overnight in a snow hotel or ice igloo during your stay. As a Northern Lights base, Finland offers so much more.

Stunning Norway

There are lots of ways to see the Aurora in Norway. How about a magnificent voyage along the stunning coastline? Northern Lights cruises offer great Aurora spotting opportunities, well away from the artificial light of towns and cities.

For a different kind of getaway in Europe, Northern Lights hunting, how about a City Break in Tromso? This fabulously cosmopolitan city offers all the advantages of life in the town with plenty of time to get out and about in the surrounding area, in search of the Aurora.

If you’re a lover of wildlife, our Northern Lights Breaks in Lofoten and Vesteralen are an absolute must. With evenings searching for the Aurora, you’ll spend your days concentrating on the local wildlife both on land and at sea.

And if you want to combine your Aurora hunting with the ultimate in cool – how about a stay in one of the amazing Norwegian snow hotels?
