Tour description

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most spectacular sights to be seen in nature, and a Northern Lights cruise with Seatrips offers you an excellent opportunity to witness this unforgettable celestial phenomenon in person – a real bucket-list experience.

Enjoy the eerie glow of this night-time kaleidoscope as solar flares are drawn to the Earth’s atmosphere by the magnetic fields of the Arctic, painting mesmerising displays of green, white, violet, red across the sky.

To see the aurora requires a clear and dark night sky, so a SeaTrips Northern Lights cruise will take you away from the bright lights of the capital city for a much better chance of success. Remember though – the Northern Lights are not “on” every day!

Additional Information

We recommend that all guests dress up warmly in multiple layers and put on suitable footwear as it is often much colder on the water. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

*Normally we will sail on the Amelia Rose. However, if there are fewer than 12 passengers booked for a voyage, then we may take our smaller yacht instead. The Axel Rose helps us to reduce our impact on the environment for smaller parties.

Please note
The northern lights are a natural phenomenon and unpredictable, so remember to bring patience and optimism with you. If the northern lights are not seen on your tour, we do not offer refunds, but instead, give our passengers a complimentary ticket to use another day. Weather is a big factor for the tour, and we may have to cancel the tour.
