What are the northern lights?

The aurora borealis is Mother Nature’s most magical light show - more spectacular and breathtaking than anything you’ll ever encounter. Blazing their beauty across an endless canvas of empty sky, the lights glow luminously in an ever-changing tapestry of textures that will alter your perspective of the world. Whether you choose to view them from shore or ship, the almost science fiction-like vortex of colours shifting and dancing across the sky in a peacock display is sure to make a lasting impression.

If that isn’t enough to inspire you to book a northern lights cruise, perhaps the destinations will?

Destination highlights

A Norwegian cruise is unlike any other. Steeped in history, Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and picturesque fjords. It’s capital, Oslo, is known for its green spaces and many museums, while Tromsø is famed as a viewing point for the northern lights.

Hurtigruten, the expedition experts, offer a classic round itinerary that calls at over 30 Norwegian ports including Ålesund, Tromsø and Kirkenes. The best time to see the northern lights is between September and April, with Hurtigruten cruises available throughout the winter season, there will be no shortage of dates to choose from.

What’s more, Hurtigruten ships are designed to allow you to fully appreciate the spectacular scenery through which you sail. Comfortable cabins, panoramic lounges and a friendly atmosphere form the heart of the on board experience. Informality is key, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the landscapes at will whilst the intimate and welcoming size of the ships ensure that you will meet like-minded and interesting people.
