If you’re looking to answer the question of ‘what are the Northern Lights?’, or maybe you just want to see Northern Lights for yourself, then a Hurtigruten cruise with Visit Northern Lights has to be one of the best ways. Hurtigruten offer a range of Arctic Circle voyages and durations in three general categories:
If you’re after an all round experience, which cover both the lights themselves and the history and culture of the Norwegian coast, the Classic voyages should provide everything you need. Classic cruises start at just £429 per-person and cover a range of durations, from 6 to 12 days. Stops include the towns of Bergen and Kirkenes, before heading into the auroral oval zone – to increase the chances of seeing the Northern Lights.
Short Break Voyages
For those after a more focused affair, just wanting to experience the Northern Lights, then Hurtigruten’s short breaks are the ideal choice. Starting at £435 per-person, these cruises head straight to the Arctic Circle, an area with the best chance to see the lights. That’s not to say there’s not time for fun though! The short break voyages also offer up a number of great winter excursions, ideal for letting off some steam.
Astronomy Themed Voyages
If you want to do more than just see the Northern Lights, the astronomy themed voyages are a great way to learn a little more about the Arctic night sky, as well as the phenomenon itself. Prices for the astronomy themed voyages start at £1095 per-person.
