Northern Lights at sea – Aurora cruises

The open sea is the ideal location for viewing the Northern Lights, outside disturbing city lights. The authentic, Norwegian Hurtigruten ship line has daily “Hunting the Aurora lights” departures throughout the Northern Lights season, taking you to the amazing Arctic areas of Northern Norway. While on board, the captain announces when they spot the Northern Lights, and you can even sign up for Northern Lights wake-up calls during the night!

Based on our local experience, we have put together a selection of Northern Lights cruise packages:
