Northern Lights Holidays 2023

Northern Lights hunting

The biggest draw to our northern destinations is the Aurora viewing potential. To see the Northern Lights in their full glory, you need dark skies which is why our trips all operate during winter and in remote locations away from light pollution. Strictly speaking, it’s difficult to say the best time to see the Northern Lights because they are a naturally occurring phenomenon. However, in places like Finland they can be seen on up to 200 nights of the year!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Aurora Borealis appears most frequently in a band just north of the Arctic Circle at approximately 66°N and 69°N. Essentially, regardless of whether solar activity is high, medium or low, this is where you have the best chance. Naturally, this is where we base all of our Northern Lights holidays in an area we call the Aurora Zone. In those destinations, we also work closely with local guides who know the area and provide innovative ways for you to go on the hunt for the Northern Lights.

Full Arctic experience

We thoroughly research and visit all of our Northern Lights destinations, and we know that the daylight hours also offer a compelling range of activities to give you the full Arctic experience.

Tick husky sledding off your bucket list, snowmobile through your wintery surroundings, or explore the snow-capped forests during a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride. To find your perfect break, take a look through our itineraries on our Northern Lights holidays in 2023 to find a trip to suit you. Alternatively, get in touch with one of our Aurora Experts on 01670 785012 who will be delighted to help you make your Northern Lights dreams come true.
