The weeks leading up to Christmas are among those in which the breath-taking Northern Lights are at their most visible inside the Arctic Circle. We have a Festive Lights short break on 2nd December direct from Belfast – perfect for combining nature’s most extraordinary light show with the atmosphere of the festive period. On this tour, you’ll search for the Aurora Borealis by snowmobile (or ‘skidoo’) in the hope of a spectacular Northern Lights sighting.
Your four-night Festive Lights break begins with a flight to Enontekio in Northern Finland. From there, you make the short transfer to the Arctic Star Hotel in Karesuando.
As well as four-nights’ full board accommodation at the Arctic Star) and loan of an all-in-one thermal suit and boots, your break includes all the activities detailed below. The running order will be organised according to the local conditions while you’re there. We can also give you the chance to choose from our programme of optional excursions – including one of the highlights of our Arctic Spirit programmes – the chance to spend the night in an igloo!
