Aurora Hunter Tour

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.

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 undergone a programme of modernisation in recent years and has all the essentials you need for a good stay including an open plan bar and dining area. There are 27 rooms in total, each being unpretentious and cosy. The Lagom rooms are inspired by the Swedish concept of Lagom: everything perfectly balanced in moderation - not too much, and not too little. The hotel also offers Fika rooms, which are slightly larger and named after the Swedish social institution of fika: a relaxing break, usually over coffee.
