Let the Northern Lights or a solar eclipse take your breath away


An expedition cruise to view the Northern Lights or a solar eclipse will change your perspectives forever. Once seen, these spectacles will never be forgotten.

Land of the Midnight Sun, North Cape


To call them the ‘Northern Lights’ seems almost demeaning. The aurora borealis is Mother Nature’s most magical lightshow – more spectacular and breathtaking than anything you will ever encounter at a concert or theatrical performance. Blazing their beauty across an endless canvas of empty sky, the Lights glow luminous red and green in an ever-changing tapestry of textures that will alter your perspective on our world. Whether you choose to view them from shore or ship, you will marvel at the almost science fiction-like vortex of colours shifting and dancing across your eyes in a peacock display of shades that you will never want to end.


But why stop there? Once you’ve savoured the sheer beauty of our skies, you’ll be hungry for more. A solar eclipse is an experience shared only by a select few – and you can join the elite. When the Moon finds itself between the Sun and the Earth and casts its shadow across the landscape, a majestic spectacle is created. As luck would have it, we were born at just the right time to take it in: the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon, but the Moon is currently 400 times closer to us, enabling each body to cancel out the other when aligned.


On average, a total eclipse takes place somewhere in the world every 18 months – and we can take you to the perfect vantage point. As you stand, open-mouthed, you will see the orb of the Sun diminish into a crescent as the Moon’s dark shadow overpowers it; during the magical moments when the Sun is blotted out, a magnificent corona will appear. These minutes will feel like hours as you marvel at the fragility of life and the spectacle of nature, shaping experiences that will in turn shape your perceptions for the rest of your life. With a cruise from Reader Offers, the world’s most memorable experiences are within your reach.
