While sightings of the Northern Lights are never guaranteed, it’s possible to plan an aurora borealis holiday carefully enough to give yourself the best possible chance of seeing this magical sight, which would usually be between October and March. There’s nothing quite like enjoying dinner under the stars in a glass-roofed lodge, with the spectacular Northern Lights dancing overhead. This natural phenomenon is an awe-inspiring sight which, as an added bonus, can be seen in some of the most beautiful corners of the world, including Finnish and Swedish Lapland, Alaska, northern Canada and Iceland.
Whichever country you choose, you can step off the beaten path and into a cosy wooden retreat, where you can stay in amongst an untouched area of frozen forests and lakes. In the winter months, daylight hours around the Arctic Circle are short but sweet - giving way to an incredible slow-motion sunrise and sunset as the sun dances on the horizon - and you can spend these precious hours on a thrilling snowmobile or husky ride across the frozen lakes, taking in the scenery before it disappears into the darkness. As you wait for the stars to appear, you can warm up in the sauna before tucking into some local cuisine, then snuggle up and keep your eyes peeled for the elusive aurora borealis. When successful, aurora borealis holidays truly are unforgettable.
