Caitlin Varley

Caitlin has been lucky enough to travel around the world before eventually making her way back to her home here in stunning Northumberland in the North East of the UK. Caitlin joined the Aurora Zone family in 2018 and is thrilled to help others fulfil their travel ambitions.

Caitlin experienced Finland for the first time on her initial holiday with The Aurora Zone in March where she explored a variety of destinations including Nellim, Inari, Harriniva and Salla. The holiday opened her eyes to brand new winter experiences such as husky sledding, snowmobiling and a reindeer sleigh ride but the moment she will remember forever was being lucky enough to witness the Aurora Borealis in all its glory. It was one of the most awe-inspiring experiences she has ever had and she can’t wait to return for the chance to see Mother Nature’s most spectacular natural phenomena again!

As well as being excited by the prospect of returning to Finland in the near future, Caitlin is very eager to experience our ‘Grand Aurora Tour’ which combines Finland, Norway and Sweden in one jam-packed adventure. The idea of being able to start her adventure in a UFO in Sweden’s world-famous Treehotel before chasing the Northern Lights through Norway and Finland is something that she thinks sounds truly bucket list worthy.

Caitlin is also excited to see the magnificent natural wonders of Iceland and Norway. The famous geysers, black beaches and beautiful waterfalls of Iceland, and the spectacular mountains and Fjords of Norway are some natural features that she thinks would look simply magical with the Aurora Borealis dancing overhead.
