There are several travel 'bucket list' items that can be ticked off in our region. If you want to view the Northern Lights, we can offer you advice and tours which will maximise your chances. Visiting Santa for a White Christmas in Finland or drinking mulled wine on New Year's Eve in Northern Norway under the Aurora lights are just a few of the special experiences our region provides.

Northern Lights

These tours are dedicated to the phenomena of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). These natural displays of green, white and purple light occur most frequently in the Polar Regions in a 2500 km radius off the geomagnetic pole. The zone with the most intense sightings of Aurora Borealis extends over Lapland in northern Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland and Finland. As it happens this is our specialist area and we are here to help you. 

Visit our page about when to see the Northern Lights.

ICEHOTEL & Snow hotels

There are several opportunities to experience a night in an ice or snow room during your trip to the far north. The Kirkenes Snow Hotel, the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel in Alta, Lainio snow village and ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi are all set up as ‘hotels’. Other resorts offer simpler freestanding igloos alongside their more traditional accommodation.

If you love the idea of this, speak to our Destination Specialists about what is available in the North. We can help you with combining options such as the Lainio snow village which offers Teepee cabins with your own private spa, the Snow castle in Kemi or visiting the Norwegian city of Geilo for the Ice Music Festival 


Glass Igloos & Domes

Glass igloos in Finland and the Nordic region are coming in all shapes and sizes now. Some of the newer options include spacious warm log cabins with attached glass domes, innovative bubble-rooms and designer hotels built with impressive Aurora skylights.

Our Scandinavian staff are passionate about their region. Below are a handful of tours that offer unique accommodation designed to bring the Northern Lights to you in comfort. 

Please contact us to speak to one of our Scandinavian staff.
