Northern Lights : Norway

The Northern Lights in Norway are simply amazing! As anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing them will tell you, they make the hairs at the back of your neck stand on end. The silence whilst waiting for them is eerie and the sheer wonder when they appear is something that will stay with you forever.

No wonder then that so many people from right across the globe travel north to see them each year. But where should you base yourself for your light spotting getaway? Well, we would like to suggest magnificent Norway!

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.

So Much Choice

The joy of a Northern Lights Norway break centres around the range of options open to light spotters. Rather than just having the choice of various hotels or apartments, in Norway you have the option of a host of different holiday types! You can see the lights on a cruise, experience them from the magical setting of an ice hotel, take a chic city break or opt for more traditional chalet accommodation. However you want to see the Northern Lights, we have the getaway for you.

City Break, Cruising or Snow Hotel?

On the Northern Lights Tromso City Break you can opt for traditional wintry activities such as snowmobiling and husky sledding or take a far more cosmopolitan approach to the whole thing and explore the city, ride its cable car and visit the Polar Museum. Tromso enjoys some of the highest rates of Auroral activity on earth and so makes for a fabulous Aurora hunting base.

When it comes to Northern Lights Norway cruises, there is a wealth of options to choose from ranging from short break cruises travelling along the Norwegian Coast to longer, more intensive itineraries. Our Northern Lights Voyage – Astronomy Cruise is a must for the dedicated stargazer. Accompanied by Ian Ridpath, editor of the Oxford Dictionary of Astronomy, this 12 day voyage takes in a host of fascinating destinations and tremendous light spotting opportunities. The soundtrack to your voyage comes, of course, courtesy of Ian’s fabulous insights into the skies and the Aurora.

The Kirkenes Snow Hotel provides an unforgettable base for a fabulous Northern Lights in Norway experience. With the chance to spend a night in one of the glorious ice rooms and enjoy a tipple in the resident Snow Bar, this is a holiday like no other. Your daytimes are free to try out traditional snowy activities or take it easy and explore your beautiful surroundings at your own pace. Night times, on the other hand, are all about the skies and the elusive Northern Lights over Norway. Will you be lucky enough to catch a glimpse?

The Right Holiday for You

The choice of holidays, as you can see, is vast! Other Northern Lights Norway options include combining Aurora spotting with Whale Watching on our Orca Whale Watching holidays, the introduction of a little culture on our Lofoten Aurora Borealis and Culture Trip and exploring the fjords by day with our Breathtaking Norwegian Fjords Cruise.
