Aurora & Nordic Winter

There are several travel 'bucket list' items that can be ticked off in our region. If you want to view the Northern Lights/ Aurora Borealis in Scandinavia it is best to go when they are at their most frequent between end of September and end of March. At 50 Degrees North, we can offer you advice and suitable tours that will maximise your chances of seeing this remarkable phenomenon.

Visiting Santa Claus for a White Christmas in Finland or drinking mulled wine on New Year's Eve in Northern Norway under the Aurora light are just a few of the special experiences our region provides.

In winter, the Nordic countries are transformed into a fairy-tale landscape of whites and ice. If you have never experienced the joy of snow, and you head to northern Norway, Finland or Sweden you will be pretty much be guaranteed snow if you travel between December and April.
