Betwixmas Auroras

Following the frantic period of present shopping, food preparation and family get-togethers, it is almost inevitable to feel a bit of comedown after December 25th. Beat the post-Christmas blues and let the festivities continue as you go in search of the Auroras. 

All of our holiday locations place you firmly in the Aurora Zone - an area where the Northern Lights are most frequently visible. Though your location means that often you only need to step outside of your accommodation to see a display, we include dedicated activities in our itineraries to increase your chances of ticking this phenomenon off your bucket list. 

In Muotka, a Northern Lights hunt via minibus will help you outrun any localised cloud cover and will take you to some of the best vantage points in this breathtaking fellside location. In Nangu, the pace will slow right down when you strap on a pair of snowshoes and go on a gentle hike out into the wilderness and further into the Arctic night. 

You could travel to Nellim, a wonderfully wild location complete with several Aurora Camps which are strategically placed to give you the best possible chance of seeing the Northern Lights. Likewise in Inari, their hunts will often take you to the shores of the huge frozen Lake Inari, an ideal platform to view the Auroras. 

Alternatively, you could travel to Saariselkä, where you will have the brilliant opportunity to sleep in Aurora Cabin for the duration of your stay. This allows your search for the Northern Lights to continue long into the night as you scan the skies from the comfort of your double bed, thanks to the heated glass roof above!

Day time experiences of a lifetime

Our Betwixmas breaks are not just for the Aurora enthusiasts either. During the day, we offer a variety of must-do winter experiences to complete your stay in the Arctic. 

Whether you want to speed through the wilds on a snowmobile, explore the frozen landscape via dog sled or slow the pace down with snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, our range of activities have been tried and tested to ensure there is something for everyone. 

What’s more, we work closely alongside our local partners in all of our destinations to provide you with an authentic insight into your chosen location. Our partners love to show off their home, and their expert local knowledge is unparalleled which helps give you the advantage - particularly when Aurora hunting.

Our Betwixmas holidays have been expertly crafted to ensure your days following Christmas don’t go to waste. We have carefully selected the travel dates to whisk you away before the post-Christmas blues set in and after a holiday filled with unbelievable experiences, you will arrive home just in time to ring in the New Year.
