Northern Lights Holidays

The Northern Lights are undoubtably one of the world's greatest natural displays.  This mysterious and colourful light show is most visible between the darkest months of December to February, preferably beneath a clear and cloudless sky.  With this winter reliably forecasted to be the best time to see the Northern Lights for many years, what better excuse do you need to book a place on one of these enlightening winter adventure holidays.



What are the Northern Lights?

The Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as The Northern Lights, are one of the worlds most spectacular natural phenomenons that features highly in many people’s bucket lists. Green lights are most common, though you could see swirls of pink, red and purple if you're particularly fortunate.



When can I see the Northern Lights?

If you want to get the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, you need to think about travelling sometime between early October and late March, and due to it's unpredictable nature, it’s fair to say that you stand as much chance of seeing them from a vantage point in Sweden as you do from a frozen lake in Finland.



What holidays are best for seeing the Northern Lights?

Experiencing the unbelievable colours moving across the Arctic sky is like a celestial ballet of light and a unique example of how beautiful science can be. All of our holidays, whether cross-country skiing inside the Arctic Circle in Sweden or husky-dogsledding in Finland are designed to not only provide you with a holiday filled with multi-active fun, but to also take you away from light pollution as much as possible and give you the best chance of seeing this magical light show.

Best For Snowshoeing - Finland Wilderness Snowshoe Adventure (6 Days)

Our base is a series of small, cosy wooden cabins, in a little-visited area just south of the Arctic Circle. Throughout the winter months this area of Finland is almost completely snowbound, but our comfortable cabins, and their sauna, will ensure that we stay warm and comfortable. You will get the opportunity to cross-country ski, husky-sled, ice-fish, igloo build and enjoy an overnight snowshoeing expedition.
