British Isles from Dover (15 days)
One of nature’s natural wonders and a spectacular solar phenomenon, the Northern Lights are guaranteed to cast you under their magical spell. Occurring in the Northern Hemisphere, above a latitude of 60 degrees, and in areas where there is little to no light pollution, they are most commonly known as the Northern Lights. However, they are also referred to as Aurora Borealis. Aurora being the Latin for sunrise and the name of the Roman Goddess of the dawn and Borealis being the Greek name for the north wind.
Steeped in myth and legend, the Northern Lights are actually created by solar winds interacting with the earth’s magnetosphere. Although they make an appearance throughout the year, the best time to witness this spellbinding light show is between September and April when the days are shorter and nights longer. The Aurora Borealis can easily be seen from Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and northern Russia.
We have developed a selection of tailor-made breaks designed with you in mind – guaranteed to thrill, yet at the same time to bring you the very best experiences that these countries have to offer.
