Great Journeys: Europe for the Northern Lights
Realise your dream of seeing the Aurora Borealis with an eye-opening astronomy cruise in Norway. Join world-renowned astronomers on a journey to locations known for high levels of Aurora activity. Begin in Bergen before grabbing the chance to explore the Art Nouveau town of Ålesund. The nights are made for Aurora spotting and your days will be filled with history, culture and exhilarating tours.
Recommended highlights of the cruise include Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, the Viking Museum in Svolvær and the Northern Lights Planetarium in Tromsø. Each evening keep your eyes on the skies for a glimpse of the stunning Northern Lights.
Always on the look-out for your next adrenalin rush? How about a five-day snowmobiling extravaganza? Race across the wild, snow-dipped terrains of Finland and absorb the incredible mountain views. Travel hundreds of kilometres on powerful snowmobiles during our Great Journeys in Europe and get stuck into Finnish traditions with spells in the sauna and feasts of freshly-prepared local food.
Go Your Own Way
If you’re an independent soul, who enjoys discovering things for themselves, take a look at our self-drive holidays. Enjoy the added comfort of knowing flights and accommodation have been arranged by us and then take to the open road for an epic adventure in Europe. You can take or leave our recommended itineraries but, just so you know, they are filled with great ideas! For instance, we highly recommend you stop off at the Museum of Icelandic Settlement in Borgarnes before heading off to enjoy the sight of the thundering waterfalls and hot springs which are strewn across Iceland’s landscapes. The impressive Snæfellsjökull glacier is a must-see and a trip to the peak of Grábrók Volcano is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
The Wonder of Wildlife
Nothing beats seeing animals in their own habitats and, during our Great Journeys, you will have the opportunity to embark on fascinating whale-watching safaris. Climb aboard a RIB and venture across the sea to locations where whales dive majestically among the waves. Keep your camera handy, because these are moments you will most certainly want to capture.
