Seeing the Northern Lights is universally accepted as the bucket list experience to end all bucket list experiences.

Flora is here to help give you the inside track.

The best time to see the Northern Lights is between December and March in Scandinavia, but they can be seen as early as August in Canada. Any trip to see the Northern Lights should be booked at least six months prior to travel so it's never too early to start thinking about getting in touch with our team of experts. As nature's very own light show, if you aren't rendered utterly awe-struck by the rays of green, blue, yellow and even pink as they dance across the sky then, well, there's no hope for you.

One thing to bear in mind is that, as a natural phenomenon, the Lights are not guaranteed to appear so it's best to plan plenty of other activities to make your holiday a memorable one (dog sledding, anyone?) so that you're not disappointed if the Lights decide not to play ball. Luck for you, we are experts in planning just such wintery adventures.
