Please read.  No tour can guarantee you seeing the Northern Lights but these tours will give you a better chance than most!  They take place in an region of mainland Europe where the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are higher than almost anywhere else.

They are all run in Lapland and obviously the further north you go the better is your view of the Northern Lights but more importantly they are run in an area renowned for clear skies - hence a space station and specialist northern lights viewing facilities are based here.  The area is surrounded by Norwegian and Finnish mountains which tend to block out the lower clouds.

The safaris that run in the darker months of the year - November, December and January - will give you more hours in the morning and evening to get a clear viewing of the Aurora although February and March can be OK if you stay up late!  You can see the Aurora during daylight hours but obviously the effect is not as good!

However if you go on a long and expensive holiday just to see the lights you could come back disappointed ...... so we recommend you select a husky sledding adventure you prefer and have an great holiday for you to experience and enjoy and then sightings of the Northern Lights will be an added bonus .... so you won't return disappointed!

On organized specialist Northern Lights tours you will be taken out at night as a group to look for the lights ...... on these adventures it will be up to you to keep a look out and pop out of the cabin whenever you feel like it to scan the skies.  We habe added two trips from Northern Finland this year as they take place in a particularly onpen area - great for scanning the skies

Northern Lights Safaris

And finally ...... if you're willing and able ..... as the Magnetic North Pole is in Canada the Aurora in Canada is particularly good .... the trips are good value - just the airfares are a little higher than Scandinavia (which aren't that brilliant either unfortunately!)
