Northern Highlights
The Northern Lights
Witness the Aurora Borealis at its best

"Aurora Borealis" are the Northern Lights, named after the Roman Goddess of Dawn, Aurora. She or rather they make their appearance in our northern hemisphere and are best seen from October through to late March. Our Finland, Iceland and Sweden holidays have been set-up with this in mind and we have departures that will maximise your chances of seeing 'aurora borealis' at her finest. With a combination of Cross Country Skiing and hot springs, our Iceland Volcanic Ski Tour will give you 8 days of winter activity in the Fjallabak. Our Arctic Wilderness Week in Finland and Skiing the Kings Trail in Sweden, both running in March will give you the perfect chance to experience this natural phenomenon. Or if you want to share it with the family we have our Winter Wonderland Sweden Family Adventure Holiday with dates from Christmas through to April.  With this winter reliably forecasted to be the best time to see the Northern Lights for many years, now is the best time to book a place on one of these enlightening winter adventure holidays.
