Northern Lights : Nature's Own Light Show

Northern Lights

Lose yourself in the mystical wonder of the mesmerising Northern Lights. These fabulous phenomena are as stunning as they are elusive and a sighting of their wonderful display is the stuff that dreams are made of.

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Aurora has captivated mankind for millennia and are the basis for countless myths and legends in the regions fortunate enough to have regular sightings of them. Their breathtaking light show appears in the sky in hues of green, red and purple and a host of patterns and shapes which, thanks to modern science, we can now explain. But don’t be too surprised if you forget about the science when you experience the glow of a mesmerising lights display!

Find your Aurora hunting tour with our range of Northern Lights holidays, or check out our Northern Lights holiday ideas for a little guidance on what types of break we offer.

You Set the Pace

It is, however, the science that lets our local guides lead you to the prime Aurora spotting locations on these tours as they follow the forecasts and updates to give your Northern Lights hunt the best chance of success. However, Aurora hunts take place at night and it’s important to make sure you’ve got plenty to do during the day! With this in mind, our carefully selected tours range from activity-filled adventures which come complete with the chance to experience the Aurora, to more relaxing explorations of the local area where fewer activities allow for a much greater focus on the lights.

Action-Packed Getaways

Snow Mobiling

Opt for a getaway packed with thrills and enjoy excursions into the wilderness on snowmobiles and dog sleds, challenging cross country skiing and snowshoeing expeditions.

Sample a new pursuit every day and experience the best that Scandinavia has to offer. When you’re not taking part in activities, sit outside your accommodation with a warming drink and wait for the Aurora to appear, or journey out into the darkness on an exhilarating Aurora hunt.

Take Things Easy

Should you decide to take things at a more sedate pace, you can opt for a break featuring the same kind of exciting pursuits but with a less packed itinerary. This kind of holiday gives you more time to explore the local area at your own pace, maybe taking a cultural tour of your destination’s highlights or enjoying the picturesque scenery. That said, your schedule can still incorporate activities such as snowmobiling and dog sledding, reindeer sleigh rides and the like – you’ll just have more time between them to relax and enjoy the area. At night, however, you’ll head out in search of the Northern Lights. Your accommodation will already be in a prime location for sightings but, to give you an even greater chance of getting an unforgettable view, a local guide will use their knowledge of the region and its conditions to take you to the night’s optimal location for witnessing the Aurora.

Capture the Perfect Memory

Also on offer from The Mighty Fine Company is a Northern Lights holiday guided by a professional photographer who will give you help and advice on capturing the iconic holiday photo. By showing you how to set up your camera and how to take the picture; you can be sure that if you’re lucky enough to see the Aurora, you’ll be able to take away a memento of your break that will get pride of place in a photo frame!
