Nordic Icy Adventures!

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, is a naturally occurring phenomenon where dancing lights fill the night skies with bold splashes of green, blue, purple, and pink. The enchanting streaks of light in the sky occur when the sun’s electrically charged particles enter the Earth’s atmosphere and create a sight to behold and a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

We recommend booking a free and no-obligation holiday consultation with our northern lights specialists, who will spend time getting to know you and understanding your ideal holiday. 

From a classic short stay city break in Reykjavik to a lodge in the remote wilderness, we can tailor-make the perfect short break or holiday for you!

Witness the Magic

Whilst there is no guarantee that you will see the awe-inspiring spectacle, heading to the Nordic Regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland will increase your chances.

Norway: A beautiful destination from the undeniably beautiful, Lofoten Islands to the cultural city of Tromso. Explore the magnificent fjords, still blue lakes, and wooden fishing villages.

Finland: The breath-taking white landscape and authentic log cabins, provide a stunning backdrop for watching the Northern Lights.

Sweden: Swedish Lapland is more accessible than ever before and offers fantastic opportunities for viewing the Aurora as well as spectacular winter scenery.

Iceland: This otherworldly island with its glaciers, geysers, majestic waterfalls, hot springs, and volcanoes, captivates visitors all year round. Ideal to do a city break and add on a whale watching experience!

Experience MORE!

In addition to hunting for the Northern Lights, we can arrange exciting activities giving you memories that will live with you for the rest of your life! Why not combine with orca watching, join a husky safari, or a stay at the spectacular Icehotel?

The Nordic countries do not only offer ice, snow, and winter sports, in the summer season when the ice has receded, beautiful lakes with quaint cabins are ideal for fishing and swimming. There is plenty of hiking and biking trails to uncover in vast forest land, as well as:

  • Husky Safaris: Meet the friendly huskies and learn how to mush your own sleigh, taking it in turns to drive in pairs. You can try husky mushing it's a whole lot of fun and can take a little time to master.
  • Snowmobile Excursion: Snowmobiling is a great way to cover a lot of ground relatively quickly, from hills to forests, vast wilderness landscapes to frozen lakes. Snowmobiles can cover all types of terrain but be prepared to fall off if you go off the tracks.
  • Reindeer Sledding: There’s something especially charming about the idea of riding in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Reindeer play an important role in Sami culture and the whole family could enjoy a Santa experience as part of a Northern Lights trip! 
  • Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing: These fun activities will certainly keep you warm in the cold weather and it's the perfect way to explore your local area.
  • Whale-Watching & Other Wildlife: If you’re lucky you might see whales in Reykjavik or Gyr Falcons soaring high in the sky. We can advise the best times to go and where to stay.

Holiday Warriors can help if you want a short break with some of the activities included or all of them in a complete escorted tour. 

Styles of Accommodation

We have a range of epic accommodation styles to choose from, whether you want to sleep in a luxury tented camp, log cabin, glass igloo, an ice hotel, or traditional hotel, trust holiday warriors to deliver your dreams.

Luxury Glass Igloo: Stay overnight for a unique and memorable experience in a thermal glass igloo. Watch the ever-changing nature of the polar night and midnight sun and the infamous northern lights from the comfort of your cosy room.

Aurora Bubble: Each individual,  wooden pod has heating, a private eco WC, and a comfortable double bed from where you can view the star-lit sky. Located on the water’s edge, the north-facing pods have specially formulated curved glass ceilings, which allow you to watch nature unfold. We can incorporate a night in an aurora bubble into your stay.

Ice Hotel: With a mix of permanent buildings and seasonal ice structures, this ice-themed hotel is located in Northern Sweden, above the Arctic Circle, in a small town called Jukkasjärvi. You can experience a chilling stay in rooms made of ice blocks, with platform beds, thermal sleeping bags and reindeer hides. Your stay will be combined with traditional year-round warm rooms in the log cabins which offer authentic decor, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Permanent ice suites, known as ICEHOTEL 365, have artistic carvings, and private, heated bathrooms and saunas.

Arctic Tree House: If you want a different experience, why not stay in the Arctic Treehouse Hotel? They are set on the hillside with impressive views of the landscape and northern skies. We can arrange and incorporate a stay with a difference that will add to your overall experience! The 49 individual suites are bespoke designs and elevated in rows above the hotel's reception and restaurant. Some suites feature private saunas and floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the amazing scenery right into the room.

City Breaks: A classic range of hotel accommodation based on budget, comfort, and location. We can book as an add-on or a short break just ask us for details. 

Trust us to help with the important details!

An ‘all in one’ Arctic suit (or salopettes and jacket) is provided for the duration of your stay on many tours and hotel stays, as are waterproof boots. By itself, this garment is not warm enough, but coupled with your own layered clothing this provides a top layer of insulation and waterproofing to ensure that you keep warm during your stay.

Having personally (Andrea) stayed at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden, and travelled around Finland and Norway, I can recommend where to stay and even what to pack. The Northern lights did make an appearance and made all my icy trips an experience of a lifetime!
