Choose below from the selection of Northern Lights Holidays which depart from the East Midlands 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.
Mush your own team of eager huskies across the Arctic tundra and drive snowmobiles down a frozen river on this short break in the Arctic wilderness.
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 East Midlands, and flying into Tromso, Norway and out of Kiruna, Sweden, 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 Tromso, Norway, you will then stay in the Arctic city – an island of true Scandinavian chic and style, and gateway to the North Pole for so many polar explorers.
After journeying through the Lyngen Alps, you will experience the wonders of the Lapland wilderness – the still Arctic tundra is the best place to see the Northern Lights. Return flight from Kiruna to East Midlands.
