Significant Birthdays

This is how to really, really wow your partner.

“For your birthday, we are heading north to hunt for the Northern Lights. We are going dog sledding and snowmobiling during the day and chasing the Aurora by night.”

We can add that extra something to any of our holiday itineraries. How about sipping champagne whilst travelling across the frozen tundra in a heated Aurora sleigh? What about lying in bed under a glass-domed window, enjoying a slice (or two) of birthday cake and watching the night sky come alive with dancing lights? Who needs candles?

The magic is out there and just waiting to be shared. Simply discuss your special birthday requirements with our Aurora experts and make that significant birthday celebration an unforgettable one.

Marriage Proposals

People are coming up with more and more imaginative ways to propose but can there be a more romantic way of doing it than underneath the Northern Lights?

We will be delighted to arrange a private proposal during an activity for just you and your partner. Your qualified guide will take you by snowmobile, snowshoes, car (you decide) to an isolated spot and, with any luck, catch that wonderful 'bended knee' moment with a Northern Lights backdrop.

It would be a pretty hard-hearted partner who could refuse such a ridiculously romantic gesture.

Honeymoons

Arctic and Aurora hunting honeymoons have become an increasingly popular choice.

There is all manner of romantic accommodation available from snug log cabins to heated Aurora Domes with huge windows facing towards the northern skyline. There are the bragging rights, right there.

“How did you spend your honeymoon?”

“In bed, watching the Aurora Borealis thanks.”

“Wow!”

It is not all about the night skies either. During the day you can drive a team of dogs through the silent winter wilderness, thrill to the exhilaration of a snowmobile safari or relax on a gentle reindeer sleigh ride.

Quite simply, winter landscapes lend themselves to romance and provide an environment that will create the kind of memories you will be discussing together years later.

Group and Family Gatherings

In the wake of the Covid restrictions on group gatherings, we have never been more aware of the importance of friends and family.

Hunting for the Northern Lights with a group of friends or your extended family is a fabulous way to make up for lost time. We can provide private accommodation and activities for just your immediate group and tailor itineraries to suit your specific needs.

We understand fully that young children, teenagers, adults and grandparents may not be able to do the same activities and will shape your programme accordingly. These things sometimes take a bit longer to organise, but it is worth the effort to ensure that everybody gets the experience they deserve and desire.

There can be all manner of little extras too. From a group meal in a wilderness cabin to a surprise birthday cake at dinner or bottle of champagne in an Aurora Dome or log cabin, there is always something that can make your group holiday unforgettable.

Best of all, of course, would be a picture of your extended family or group of close friends all happily smiling underneath the Northern Lights. It can be arranged but, as ever, we will need a bit of help from Mother Nature!
