Northern Lights and Arctic cruises from the UK

Cruises from the UK in search of the Northern Lights take in the rugged Norwegian coast before crossing the Arctic Circle. Whilst Arctic Norway is incredible to experience in the winter, the summer months are also spectacular as the Midnight Sun bathes the coast in shades of gold.

About Northern Lights Cruises

Sightings of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are never guaranteed, but cruises to Arctic Norway offer the best chance to witness this natural phenomenon. Above the Arctic Circle you are far from towns and other sources of artificial light making viewings more likely. The snow-capped mountains reflect the shades of gold, pink and blue created during Mother Nature’s mesmerising light show.

Northern Lights cruises from the UK often call at the Art Nouveau town of Alesund, former Norwegian capital of Trondheim, overlooked by a striking 14th-century cathedral, and the tranquil Lofoten Islands, dotted with traditional fishing villages. There is also the Arctic capital of Tromso, renowned for its cathedral, and Alta where you can experience traditional Sami culture. Some cruise past the magnificent Seven Sisters mountain range before crossing the Arctic Circle.

During the summer months, Arctic Norway is illuminated under the Midnight Sun. This natural phenomenon baths the coastline in vibrant shades of gold, making a cruise at this time of year really special. Cruise lines visit the same ports as on Northern Lights voyages but you are guaranteed a completely different cruising experience during the summer months, as the scenery and wildlife is different to the winter months.
