Experiencing Arctic Autumn

To reach Arctic Europe you have to travel into the true north to what can often feel like the top of the world.

Whether you’re standing on the high ground of the Finnish fells or you’re sailing through the Norwegian fjords surrounded by towering carved cliffs, these destinations put you in some of the last remaining wilderness regions of Europe.

With such pristine environments also comes next to no light pollution which makes ideal conditions for Northern Lights viewing. What’s more, the autumnal equinox has also been scientifically proven to produce some fantastic displays and as the big freeze is yet to set in, often Aurora displays come with the added bonus of seeing them reflected in the still bodies of water below!


Where to travel to

In Finland, you could travel to the Lake Inari region for an ideal reflective surface for the Northern Lights. In Pyhä, you’ll be on the border of the expansive Pyhä-Luosto National Park or you could travel to Saariselkä, where you’ll spend every night in an Aurora Cabin, searching the skies from the comfort of your bed.

In Norway, you can experience the vibrancy of Tromsø, the ‘Capital of the Arctic’ before travelling to the Lyngen Alps for an exceptional glamping experience in a Crystal Lavvo.

Whichever location you choose, we have also crafted your itinerary to make the most of the daylight hours in these stunning landscapes. From guided nature walks to RIB boat safaris, you’ll experience everything that Arctic autumn has to offer.
