Northern Lights Cruises
Venture into the heart of nature’s most mesmerising spectacle on one of our Northern Lights Cruises. As you sail through the icy waters, the skies above unfold a canvas of shimmering colours, presenting the Aurora Borealis in all its ethereal glory.
The best time to embark on this luminous adventure is during the darker months, typically between late September and late March. During this window, the skies are at their darkest and the lights, with their mesmerising hues of green, pink, and violet, are at their most vibrant.
While Aurora Borealis remains the star attraction, these cruises also offer a unique perspective on the stark beauty of the polar regions. Imagine sailing past towering icebergs, or catching a glimpse of a whale breaking the surface in the moonlit waters, all under the watchful gaze of the Aurora.Search All Northern Lights Cruises

For the optimal Northern Lights experience, head as near to the Arctic Circle as you can, beneath a canopy of absolute darkness. Embark on a journey to destinations within the Northern Lights Oval for a front-row seat with uninterrupted views.
The prime time to witness the Northern Lights is during the winter months, from September to April, when the nights are longest and the skies are darkest. Venturing into this winter wonderland is well worth wrapping up for!
