The tours listed above have been designed to maximise your chances of witnessing one of our Planets most awe-inspiring natural phenomena, the Aurora Borealis.
You’ll be based at a high enough latitude to be able to see the Aurora even when levels of solar activity are relatively low, i.e. KP 1 or 2. (cloud cover dependent of course).
The locations that we tend to select are generally on the mainland, which enables us to drive in various directions depending upon the local weather conditions on any given night and, if need be, over relatively long distance. We also tend to avoid islands and for the simple reason that, by their very nature, they tend to attract cloud. There is nothing worse than feeling “boxed in”.
We also tend to choose places where the scenery is both dramatic and varied.
It’s not so easy to find total dark space these days but, wherever possible, we like to take our clients to dark sky locations so that they can truly appreciate the Aurora, as well as the night sky in general. Many of our clients have never had the opportunity to see the “Milky Way” before, for example, so as you may imagine they are in total awe when they are underneath that star studded sky.
