If you’re looking for a touch of magic for your next holiday, we have just the thing for you…
Aurora Borealis or the “Northern Lights” are some of the most awe-inspiring sights our planet has to offer.
Thousands upon thousands of visitors travel from all over the world every year to witness this beautiful phenomenon first hand.
But what exactly are the Northern Lights? Let’s take a look…
Believe it or not, it’s all to do with gas particles. Doesn’t sound very majestic now, does it? But it’s actually quite interesting!
The lights are a result of gaseous particles colliding in the Earth’s atmosphere, with a little help from our friend the sun.
These gaseous particles collide with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere, creating a cascade of dancing and shimmering lights in the sky.
The particular colours that are produced depend on the type of gas-particle involved in the collisions, but the traditional green colour that is most associated with the Northern Lights is a result of oxygen particles which are plentiful.
While they may appear close because of their size, the lights are actually at a height of between 60 and 400 miles about the Earth’s surface.
While the Northern Lights are contained near the Earth’s northern magnetic pole (no surprise) there are also Southern Lights at the Earth’s southern pole. These are called Aurora Australis.
With Whereabouts, we’re offering you the chance to check out the magnificence of the Northern Lights yourself with our Northern Lights Adventure and the Malangen Fjord trip.
Norway is a prime location to catch the Northern Lights in all their splendour.
Our trip takes you to the quaint city of Tromsø.
Surrounded by majestic mountains and stunning archipelago, you’ll never want to leave as you’ll enjoy all the views the city has to offer from the comfort of your hot tub!
The next evening you’ll head to Malangen resort where you will stay for the next two nights of your light-hunting expedition.
Our experienced guides make the perfect travel companions to help you get the best views of Aurora Borealis Norway has to offer.
You’ll spend the next day out amongst the elements, mushing your very own sled dog team! Things can get a bit chilly, but don’t worry.
By the time you get back to the hotel, the sauna with panoramic views of your surrounding will be nice and hot, ready and waiting for you.
You’ll get the chance to experience the Northern Lights one last time before you leave, giving you plenty of time for a lasting impression to take away with you.
How amazing does that sound?!
