Those that have heard of Rovaniemi may recognise it because of its reputation as the official hometown of Father Christmas. Though this is a big incentive to visit Rovaniemi during your winter holiday, there are many other reasons to come to this wonderful city.

Quite some time ago, we wrote an article debunking fears that the Northern Lights are set to disappear as the Sun approaches a period of reduced activity known as Solar Minimum. The article highlighted that yes, solar activity is likely to reduce but, happily, the incidences of Coronal Holes is expected to increase.

It may still only be October but the first snow has already started to fall in Lapland and winter is well on its way! Here at The Aurora Zone, this news fills us with excitement as in our opinion there is something quite special about chasing after the Northern Lights in spectacular snow-covered landscapes.

However, something that has to be even more special than hunting the Aurora in the snowy Arctic wilderness is the opportunity to celebrate Christmas in your very own winter wonderland on your very own festive Northern Lights adventure!

Plan your Northern Lights holiday for December 2020!

As soon as the first advent calendar door opens on 1st December, the countdown to Christmas is on!

For many of us, the last month of the year can be quite hectic which makes it a great time to get away from all the busyness and enjoy a Northern Lights holiday.

What better way to get into the festive spirit, or even celebrate the big day, than in a dream winter landscape watching as green ribbons of light dance in the dark night sky? In many of our destinations, Christmas is celebrated on the 24th which means you will experience the traditional celebrations of the country you are visiting as well as being able to spend the 25th with your loved ones in superb surroundings.

Give the ultimate Christmas present this year with a bucket list holiday in prime Northern Lights territory.
