Chase the LightsFinland

Starting in seaside city of Helsinki, you'll spend 14 days chasing the elusive northern lights across two of Scandinavia's most magical destinations – Finland and Norway.

In search of the dancing lights, you'll first travel to Lapland's Rovaniemi, where you'll visit the home of Santa Clause and live out all your childhood fairytales. Scenic winding roads will lead you to Saariselka. Here, you'll spend the night in a private Aurora Cabin or Glass Igloo as the Aurora Borealis shines its magic above you among the millions of stars that dot the sky, all from the comfort of your warmed bed.

When the magic of Santa and the Northern Lights fill your memories, you'll head toward Kirkenes where you'll board the Southbound Hurtigruten Voyage and start your adventure south through the wild Arctic landscapes of Mehamn, Skjervøy, Lofoten Islands, UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vega Islands near Sandnessjøen and so much more before ending the trip in Bergen.
