Imagine some of the world’s brightest, most spellbinding displays of the northern lights pulse through a star-spangled Arctic sky. Or feeling the exuberant tug of huskies as you mush across a frozen lake... Imagine the thrill of watching orcas glide through Arctic seas, or a waterfall thundering against cliffs of ice. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to spend a night in the Icehotel? Or a log cabin snuggled in the snow-shrouded forests of the far north?
Our collection of winter holidays showcase the quintessential experiences that capture the magic of winter. They are designed to maximise your chances of witnessing the northern lights, but success should always be viewed as a bonus. This natural phenomenon is notoriously fickle – but much of the pleasure comes from the chase.
Our holidays offer plenty of scope to enjoy a range of winter activities from husky sledding and snowmobiling to superjeep tours and sauna sessions. Also vying for attention are spectacular natural wonders like Iceland's frozen waterfalls, Finland's snow-cloaked taiga forest and the cetacean rich sea of the coast of Norway.
Swapping winter for the austral summer
Perhaps your definition of a winter break is an escape from winter. In which case, the long days of the austral summer provide the ideal antidote to the northern chill. Epic wildlife encounters in Antarctica, self-drive discoveries in New Zealand, or tropical adventures in Australia are just a few of the options available.
Whether you choose the ultimate 'cool' break at Sweden's Icehotel, a cosy log cabin hideaway in Finland or an adventure cruise in the great white continent, contact our team of Travel Specialists to plan your holiday.
