The weeks leading up to Christmas are among those in which the breathtaking northern lights are at their most visible inside the Arctic Circle. We have a series of Festive Lights short breaks running from late November to the end of the Christmas holiday, with special departures from regional airports across the UK – perfect for combining nature’s most extraordinary light show with the atmosphere of the festive period. On these tours, you’ll search for the aurora borealis by snowmobile (or ‘skidoo’) and on a forest trek, where our guides will take you to a remote vantage point, in the hope of a spectacular northern lights sighting

Activities

Your two, three or four-night Festive Lights break begins with a flight from your chosen UK airport to Enontekio in Northern Finland. This will be a festive themed flight, possibly with carol singing included. From there, you make the short transfer to the Arctic Star Hotel in Karesuando.

As well as two, three or four nights’ full board accommodation at the Arctic Star (including for those staying over Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, a special Christmas Dinner or New Year’s Eve Dinner) and loan of an all-in-one thermal suit and boots, your break includes all the activities detailed below. We’ll organise the running order according to the local conditions while you’re there.
