Choose below from the selection of Northern Lights Holidays which depart from Birmingham this winter.
This Northern Lights holiday is the perfect introduction to the Arctic Circle. Spending three nights in remote Lapland on the official Northern Lights Route – far from any city or commercialised resorts – will give you the best chances of seeing the fabled Aurora Borealis.
Departing from Birmingham in January (the height of winter is a prime time to see the Aurora since the nights are long), this holiday gives you the chance to mush your own team of eager huskies across the Arctic tundra and drive a snowmobile down a frozen river.
The longer you holiday in the Arctic, the better the chances of seeing the Northern Lights! A week-long tour is not only a good way to increase your chances of experiencing the Aurora, but also gives you time to appreciate the culture of Lapland's indigenous people: the Sami.
Departing from Birmingham, this holiday includes Lapland favourites, such as husky sleds, snowmobiles, and a reindeer sleigh ride through the snow. The included excursions to the reindeer camp and the Sami museum are an excellent way to find out about the local culture.
Make this Festive season extra special by embarking on a Lapland adventure in search of the Northern Lights – Lapland is not just for kids at Christmas!
In the midst of the Arctic wilderness, you can enjoy a range of Lapland activities along the Northern Lights Route: snowmobiling down frozen rivers, mushing a team of huskies through the Arctic tundra or riding a reindeer-pulled sleigh through the snow. What a very merry Christmas!
