Northern Lights Tours
Northern Lights Holidays in Scandinavia and beyond
Nothing quite compares to witnessing the colourful swathes of the Northern Lights as they bathe the night sky. Scientifically known as the Aurora Borealis, after the Roman goddess of dawn and the Greek name for the north wind, this incredible light show graces the skies of the north and south poles during the depths of winter. Electrically-charged solar particles collide miles above the planet to create dancing sheets of colour from neon green to vivid purple in an ethereal display of multi-coloured lights.Escape the bright lights of the city and venture into the darkness of some of Scandinavia's and Greenland's most spectacular landscapes with your eyes skyward for a glimpse of this incredible natural event on tour with us.
Travel with us to Iceland, Lapland, Norway or Greenland for a night (or two) beneath the sky in search of the stunning Aurora Borealis.
If you're interested in more astronomical wonders, we also offer tours that include a night watching some of the planet's most famous meteor showers. Head to Jordan in August to watch a celestial shower over the Wadi Rum desert or visit Morocco in December for an equally beautiful display in the Sahara.
