Take advantage of the Hurtigruten's Northern Lights Complimentary Cruise Promise this season!
Winter should not be underestimated when it comes to visiting Norway. It is perhaps the most incredible place in the world to explore amazing Northern Lights and the Norwegian Coastline blanketed in snow evokes sheer peace and tranquility.
If you know ONE thing about the Arctic, it is probably that the Northern Lights are a must-see for many visitors.
Contrary to popular belief, Aurora Borealis is not just a phenomenon that happens in the deepest, darkest winter - in North Greenland, you can see it from late September through to the middle of April!
In Ilulissat, you don't need to wait until winter arrives to marvel at 'Mother Nature's Light Show.' Due to the town's location 180 miles (300 kilometers) north of the Polar Circle, it is possible to see Northern Lights from late September when the sun's rays no longer can reach above the horizon 24 hours a day.
This means the Greenlandic autumn is an ideal period to visit; not only will the days allow you to explore the Disko Bay and the impressive Ilulissat Ice Fjord - the evening may well reward you with more than just stars.
With our 2022 June and July tours completely sold out, we recommend looking to September and October for availability.
