The Aurora Borealis (named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas)

The Aurora Zone was born out of our love of all things wintery. We were already regular visitors to the likes of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland thanks to a fascination with winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and the Lappish way of life generally.

Many of our visits coincided with sightings of the Northern Lights and witnessing them as they dance across the northern skies is just one of those wonderful life moments. We are based in Northeast England on the outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne and whilst we can occasionally see the Aurora Borealis from parts of the coast near where we work, we assure you that nothing compares to standing on a frozen lake in a remote part of Northern Scandinavia and watching the lights up close and personal.

That is what drives us here at The Aurora Zone, that desire to share Mother Nature’s greatest wonder with as many people as possible. Just about everybody at The Aurora Zone from the Managing Director to the Marketing team to the Administration team has been held in Aurora’s thrall and our mission is to do our very best to ensure that our clients can experience that magical moment too.
