Here at Northern Lights Holidays, we have been creating and operating short breaks to the Arctic for almost thirty years – so we know what makes a holiday very special. Below, you will find some of the holidays which we have put together (and are very proud of). From short breaks of just three nights to week-long exploration holidays, there will be something for everyone. Each of the holidays is based on the official Northern Lights Route, the best place to see the Aurora Borealis.
If you would like to discuss our holidays with us further, or add something to one of our breaks which you can’t find here, we’d love to hear from you.
This short holiday of either three or four nights is the perfect introduction to the Arctic Circle. Staying in the heart of remote Lapland – far from any commercial resort or built-up city, this break includes a husky sled safari through the Arctic tundra, a snowmobile ride down a frozen river, and a reindeer sleigh ride through Lapland’s snow.

A week-long holiday lets you fully appreciate the rich culture of Lapland – from the snowy Arctic landscape which lasts for as far as the eye can see, to the livelihood of the indigenous Sami people. This seven-night holiday includes a visit to the Sami museum and snow castle as well as other favourite Lapland activities.

Combine the Arctic wilderness with an Arctic city on this twin-centre Scandinavian holiday. Three nights in Tromso gives you time to explore this ‘gateway’ for polar expeditions, and four nights further down the Northern Lights Route, in Karesuando, gives you the best of chances to spot the fabled Aurora Borealis.

What better way to spend the Festive season than in Santa’s homeland! But Lapland is not just for children… This four-night break includes a host of winter activities which will make your Christmas break memorable. After flying to Enontekio, Finland, you will stay in a small cosy hotel, specially selected by us.

The end of the Arctic winter brings more moderate temperatures to Lapland, making the outdoors more accessible and more comfortable. In April, the days are also longer and there is still fresh snowfall allowing for enjoyment of Arctic activities: husky sleds, snowmobiles and reindeer sleighs – making for a perfect Easter break!
