Discover the Northern Lights

Why not discover the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) with a memorable arctic holiday?

Swirling, dancing streaks of red and green, rippling clouds of pink and yellow or eerie arcs of violet and blue; illuminating the sky, casting a heavenly, mesmeric glow over the world beneath. A natural light show – once seen, never forgotten.

Best viewed through the dark nights of winter, Aurora Borealis is at its most vivid across the skies of the Arctic Circle region

So, don’t delay, our consultants at arctic-circle-holidays.co.uk are waiting to help you discover the rare and wondrous beauty of the Northern Lights.

NORTHERN LIGHTS ITINERARY

Your Northern Lights break begins with a flight to Kiruna* in Sweden or Enontekio** in Finland, the ‘Gateways to the Arctic’. From these airports, you make the 1-2 hour transfer to Karesuando a spectacular journey, travelling through the majestic forests and passing countless frozen lakes (2 hours from Kiruna, 1 from Enontekio). The highlight of your break will be the two occasions when you set off beneath an Arctic night sky in the hope of encountering the fabled northern lights.

Your itinerary includes all the activities detailed below. We’ll organise the running order according to the local conditions while you’re there. We can also give you the chance to choose from our programme of optional excursions: perhaps spend a night in an igloo – a highlight of our Arctic Spirit programmes.

In addition to these exciting excursions Dr Stuart Clarke, award winning author and fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, will be giving a series of exclusive talks on the Aurora Borealis (selected dates only).

Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari

Duration: Two hours

An evening excursion when, with the night sky overhead, you head out through the wilderness to a vantage point in the hope of seeing the fabled and magical Northern Lights. Two adults share a snowmobile.

Northern Lights Forest Trek (not included on two night breaks)

Duration: One hour

You will be guided on a walk through the forest to a spectacular viewpoint, overlooking the border-village of Karesuando. From here, you may be lucky enough to witness the Northern Lights dancing above the village.

Call of the Wild Husky Safari

Duration: One and a half hours

An unforgettable adventure into the wilderness, pulled by your own team of beautiful huskies. Two adults share a sled and dog team.

Reindeer Camp

Duration: Approx two and a half hours

Learn about herding and lassoing reindeer from reindeer farmers. Then venture into the wilderness on a reindeer sleigh safari.

Snowshoe Introduction (only included on four night breaks)

Duration: Two hours

This guided snowshoe tour is a fun and simple introduction to an age-old means of traversing the Arctic winter terrain.

Accommodation

Arctic Star Hotel

Northern Lights Tour

Situated on the outskirts of Swedish Karesuando, the Arctic Star is a traditional and friendly hotel offering superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell. Here, you are well placed to explore Karesuando on foot, dropping in at Sweden’s most northerly church, paying a visit to the local museum and regularly crossing the Finnish-Swedish border.

Whilst simple and comfortable, the hotel has recently undergone a programme of modernisation and has all the essentials you need for a good stay including an open plan bar and dining area. The rooms are simple and cosy, with room upgrades available.

Standard Double/Twin (Sleeps 2-4)

Northern Lights Tour

These value-for-money twin and double rooms offer a generous 15.8 square metres of space, with en suite facilities. Whilst they have not been refurbished in recent years, the rooms are comfortable and traditional. They can also accommodate a third person on a fold-up bed if required, making them ideal for the budget conscious. Larger rooms can sleep up to 4.

Davvi Arctic Lodge Hotel

The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a charming, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando. The beautiful restaurant, its circular design inspired by the shape of a Sami reindeer corral, is the hotel’s centrepiece and from here you can enjoy panoramic views over the snow-covered hillside to Swedish Lapland located just across the border.

Deep in the heart of True Lapland, and located on the offical Northern Lights route, Karesuando offers once-in-life-time Arctic experiences without the crowds. For those looking to stay in the Swedish side of the village we also offer Northern Light stays at the Arctic Star hotel.
