Renown for its dramatic landscapes, thermal springs, giant glaciers and bubbling magma is also a great place to spot the Northern Lights. Sitting just below the Artic Circle and in main trips to Iceland being based in the Capital City of Reykjavik, Iceland makes a great City break with excursions to see Northern Lights and magnificent scenery.


For the best chance to see the aurora, you are going to want to get away from any light pollution – and that means getting out of town. Lying right below the aurora pathway is Norway’s Northern Coastal area or the vast tundra of Lapland that spreads across Norway, Sweden and Finland. These holidays allow you to get right out into the wild with great opportunities of husky riding and snowmobiling and one the best areas to get a chance of seeing this spectacular phenomenon.

Canada / Alaska

This is truly getting out into the wild and experiencing the world of Jack London’s Call of the Wild and White Fang. Names like Yukon and Klondike bring you the history of mining and pioneer gold rush days. To get a combination of Northern Lights and Polar Bears Canada’s Churchill area is best in October and November.

Svalbard / Greenland

Svalbard located just 650 miles south of the North Pole, this is Scandinavia at its remotest. It is so far north that, in the depths of winter, the Polar Night affords Northern Lights viewing even in the daytime. Greenland is the largest island and the least densely populated country in the world, its vast wildernesses afford adventurers unspoilt views of plunging fjords and breath-taking mountains as a backdrop to the dazzling Northern Lights display in winter.
