A short break holiday to Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland or Greenland to view nature's celestial spectacle the aurora borealis is a perennially popular choice for travellers. Sightings can never be guaranteed, but you can bolster your chances by browsing our range of tailor-made holidays and suggested itineraries, including luxury accommodation options. We recently listed the best places to see the Northern Lights for you to consider.
