Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Are the Northern Lights guaranteed on this trip?

    The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis as they are also referred to are one of the many natural wonders of the world and are a natural phenomenon

    As a naturally occurring phenomenon, the appearance of the Northern Lights is notoriously difficult to predict any further in advance than about two hours before it happens. So much is dependent on solar activity, we can accurately predict neither when they will occur nor how frequently.

    Every endeavour will be made on this trip to see the Northern Lights, if it is the correct time of year to see the lights however this is not guaranteed.

  • Is there a single supplement available on this tour?

    Yes. Please take note that there will be an extra charge for a single supplement room. Please contact us to arrange this.
