John Macinnes Apukka 19 AuroraZoneMoments

For most of us January can be a tough month, Christmas has been and gone and the British weather leaves us wanting to wrap up and avoid the cold, wet weather outside. However, January in the Arctic is a different matter! Snow-topped trees, reindeer and the Northern Lights have all combined to make sure that January was another excellent month for our #AuroraZoneMoments competition!

We received some brilliant entries from our clients enjoying a wide variety of bucket list moments. From snowmobiling adventures and dog sledding safaris through the Arctic wilderness, to watching the elusive Aurora Borealis dance in the sky above, January in the Arctic Circle has provided some very special moments for many of our clients, bring on February!

If you’re travelling with us between 1st February and 31st March 2020, simply share your photos with us on social media using the hashtag #AuroraZoneMoments and you could be in with a chance of winning a £50 John Lewis and Partners voucher!

We’ll be announcing a winner each month until the end of March so make sure you’re following our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for all of the latest updates. But for now, let’s take a look at some of the brilliant #AuroraZoneMoments that our clients experienced this January!
