Where to See the Northern Lights

Many people have heard about the phenomena that are the Aurora Borealis yet most people are unsure of where to see the Northern Lights. We provide outstanding holidays that are packed full of amazing adventures and wondrous sights which you can experience amongst the thrill of searching for the elusive Lights. The Aurora Borealis were once shrouded in a myriad of myths and legends dating back to ancient times. The drapes of green and pinkish hues were understood by the Vikings to be reflections from dead maidens, whilst the Nordic countries said that “God is angry when the Aurora flames”. Whatever the beliefs, there is no doubting that anyone who has encountered the magical display would have been awe-struck by their mysterious supremacy.

Norway, Sweden and Finland are to name but a few places where we would recommend travellers visit in search of the Aurora Borealis. Travellers of all ages have ventured into the Scandinavian territories and many have had the good fortune to witness the Northern Lights.
