Northern Lights Europe

Witness the captivating Northern Lights in Europe

The mesmerising Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, is one of the most stunning natural wonders imaginable. Illuminating the night skies in shades of green, blue, yellow and red, this stunning phenomenon attracts thousands of people each year, all keen to experience its magic for themselves.

Our trips to see the Northern Lights in Europe cater for all tastes, from those who want to combine Aurora hunting with a host of other snowy activities, to dedicated Northern Lights enthusiasts in search of a wilderness adventure or an educational voyage.

You can hunt for the Northern Lights in Europe in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Your chosen destination depends on the kind of holiday you are looking for. Opt for Finland for amazing multi-activity breaks or full-on snowmobile and husky sled adventures. Choose Iceland to search for the Aurora in simply stunning landscapes. Norway offers a host of voyages where opportunities to see the Northern Lights come very much as standard and Sweden is the home of one of the world’s most famous Aurora locations: wonderful Abisko!

Location, Location, Location

We offer a host of fabulous holidays to some really special destinations which are sure to add another dimension to your trip to see the Northern Lights in Europe. Opt to spend a night in a snow hotel in Finland, Norway or Sweden, spending your daytimes enjoying the snow thanks to fun-filled activities such as dog-sledding, snowmobiling, showshoeing and reindeer sleigh rides. You’ll be amazed at how comfortable the ice suites prove to be thanks to some rather cosy thermal sleeping bags and plentiful reindeer hides.

Like so many of our other chosen holiday bases, our snow hotels are simply ideal for Northern Lights hunting, thanks to their remote locations. Remote, indeed, is something we do very well, so our chosen hotels like the famous Ranga in Iceland, are perfectly situated to provide the best possible views of the night sky. And if you are concerned about missing the lights should they appear during the night time, this magnificently experienced Icelandic gem even offers a wake-up call, ensuring you don’t miss a single moment of the magic.
