Choose below from the selection of Northern Lights Holidays which depart from Bournemouth this winter.
This Northern Lights holiday from Bournemouth is the perfect introduction to the Arctic. Spending four nights in remote Lapland on the official Northern Lights Route – far from any commercialised resorts – will give you the best chances of seeing the fabled Aurora Borealis.
Departing from Bournemouth in February (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 Bournemouth, and flying into Kiruna, Sweden and out of Tromso, Norway, this holiday includes excursions to the reindeer camp and the Sami museum - both an excellent way to find out about the local culture.
This twin-centre Lapland holiday gives you the flavour of two very different cultures of the Arctic Circle. Flying into Kiruna, Sweden, you will experience the wonders of the Lapland wilderness – the still Arctic tundra is the best place to see the Northern Lights.
After journeying through the Lyngen Alps, you will then stay in Tromso, the Arctic city – an island of true Scandinavian chic and style, and gateway to the North Pole for so many polar explorers. Return flight from Tromso to Bournemouth.
