Seek out the Northern Lights by night with a guide, and explore your captivating surroundings by day – options include dog-sledding, snowshoeing, glacier walking and more. Whether you choose Reykjavík, Tromsø, or an off-the-beaten-track location, you stay in a friendly hotel of character.
The Northern Lights are elusive and hard to predict, so seeing them in all their glory is such an exciting and tantalising prospect. To give you the best chance of spotting them, our Northern Lights breaks include an evening excursion with your hosts or a local guide.
By day, depending on which Northern Lights holiday you choose, you can enjoy the snow in a variety of ways.
These range from cross-country skiing to snowshoeing, from dog-sledding to glacier walking, and from sightseeing to snowmobiling. (We’ll provide full information about the activities available and how to book.)
If you are lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during your break, it is an experience never to be forgotten: explosions of iridescent greens, pinks, yellows and blues flash and soar across the night sky in an incredible, almost surreal, display of celestial pyrotechnics.
We offer specific Northern Lights breaks to the Icelandic capital, Reykjavík, as well as to the Norwegian city of Tromsø, the island of Senja, and the settlement of Sollia close to the Russian border.
Alternatively, our journey by boat amid Norway’s Arctic Islands, or any holiday in Ylläs in Finland, also offer a good chance of witnessing this spectacular natural phenomenon.

Northern Lights breaks, Inntravel style
The three key ingredients of our Northern Lights breaks (and Inntravel holidays in general) are: awe-inspiring surroundings; hand-picked, welcoming accommodation; and traditional regional cuisine.
Information you can trust
We take great pride in providing comprehensive information about each village and its activities, and we update it constantly. As well as practicalities such as the best hire shop and the ice rink’s opening hours, it includes information about places of interest and local culture, so that you have a rich holiday experience – however you enjoy the snow.
Tailored to suit you
Holidays work best when tailored to your requirements, so we do all we can to meet your needs. Let us pre-book your equipment hire (as well as lessons), arrange a room upgrade, book flights from an airport near you (or rail travel from London), and perhaps add on a city break, making your snow holiday even more memorable.
Friendly, expert knowledge
If you want a snow holiday with a difference, talk to the friendly experts. Having explored the quiet side of the mountain since 1985, we are well set to help you plan your ultimate holiday away from the crowds. When you call or email us, your questions will be answered by people who have stayed at our hand-picked hotels.
