Voyage in search of the Aurora Borealis


The Aurora Borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, is nature’s natural lightshow - a dazzling display of vivid green and pink hues that swirl and dance across the winter skies of the Northern Hemisphere. It is the natural phenomenon that literally brightens dark winter nights and draws thousands of onlookers into the Arctic Circle every winter.


Cruise deep into the Arctic Circle to snowy lands rich in natural wonders and populated by Sami tribes who have lived off the harsh terrain for generations. This is a place where nature and adventure go hand in hand on snowmobile expeditions through silent forests or husky safaris where visitors can take command of their own dog sled. Perhaps stop for a break at the Igloo Hotel, freshly built from snow and ice every winter near the Norwegian town of Alta, and enjoy a refreshing drink served in a glass made of ice.


Tromsø, the so-called ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, is one of the best preserved cities as its historic buildings escaped wartime damage. Above all, Tromsø and Alta are among the best places in Norway to witness the Northern Lights. Built on three islands with a dramatic mountain back drop, Ålesund is known for its architecture as one of the world’s few Art Nouveau cities and a unique place to explore. From Åndalsnes, choose to relax on the Rauma Railway, cutting through the mountains and along the fast-flowing river, affording dramatic vistas of stark jagged peaks and attractive waterfalls.


Iceland also offers the chance to witness the Aurora Borealis as well as experience snowmobiling, whale watching, a man-made ice cave and relaxing at the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon.
