Amazing Northern Lights
This is the time of the year to start planning, and booking your trip to see the spectacular Northern Lights. The most popular times, such as half terms and the Christmas holiday soon fill their places to see the Northern Lights, leading to disappointment (and increased prices).
As with everything to do with Nature, there is no guarantee that you will see the Lights. Cloud cover or poor visibility will stop you seeing them and some nights are better than others. So, we recommend that you book at least 5 nights to give yourself the best chance of seeing the spectacle.
We also strongly recommend that you combine other activities with your trip so that you have more than one thing to look forward to. What to do in addition to sky gazing does depend on where you decide to go.
The three most popular destinations to see the Northern Lights are Alaska, Iceland and Norway. A trip to Alaska could be combined to see the Iterod Dog race that starts at the end of February – one of the last truly incredible races through unforgiving wilderness. Challenge yourself to drive a dog sled or take to the wilds on a snowmobile. If going to Iceland, which has the benefit of direct flights from London, then combine your stay with exploring the extraordinary geological sites that are to be found around the island. For those thinking of going Northern Light seeking in Norway, you have the option of cruising close to the Arctic Circle or being land based. Again here you can dog sled, snowmobile or even stay a night in the Ice Hotel.
