Between late August and mid-November, the Arctic undergoes a spectacular transformation. As the Midnight Sun starts to set and the landscape prepares for the winter freeze, autumn’s reputation as the season of change has never been more apparent than in the North.

Recently, NASA made their entire media library accessible to the public and since then, we’ve been excitedly scrolling through some spectacular images from space. Now, the Northern Lights are mesmerising to see from land but there’s something about a space station’s unique vantage point that really shows off just how magical this display is.

Packing for a winter holiday is a completely different experience to a holiday in the sun. When you start adding jumpers, thermals, coats, hats and gloves to your suitcase it can start to fill up very quickly!

Kirsty firmly believes that holidays are not just for the summer and loves to make the most out of the winter months too. After working in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Kirsty fell in love with the snow and all the great opportunities to get active that it brings.

One of Kirsty’s most memorable trips took her to Iceland where she was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights.

Levi resort - coming soon!

From the innovative creators of the Northern Lights Village in Saariselkä, we’re pleased to announce a BRAND NEW resort is coming to The Aurora Zone in November 2019.

The Levi Resort is 16km from Levi centre and will feature 40 Aurora Cabins designed to give you a truly memorable stay during your winter holiday to Finnish Lapland and the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

These glass-roofed cabins will give you clear views of the night sky right from the comfort of your bed. What better way to search for the Northern Lights than while you’re wrapped up warm in your duvet looking up at the sky in an Aurora Cabin?

Levi sits in the far north of Finland, high above the Arctic Circle putting it well within the Aurora Zone. This means that it has great Northern Lights viewing potential and with their glass roofs, these Aurora Cabins certainly make the most of it.

The Levi Resort accommodation will be bookable very soon for our 2019 winter dates. Please email us for more information: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 01670 785 012
