28, April 2015: Travel industry experts say that a trip to the lovely town of Abisko, in Northern Sweden, is no longer just about visiting the magnificent Aurora Sky Station to experience the Aurora Borealis - it is now seen as a destination in its own right, and a gateway to so much more intrigue.
British actress and travel presenter Joanna Lumley was featured in a BBC documentary about the Northern Lights. She travelled to Lofoten, a beautiful region in Norway and, with interest high, renowned Northern Lights operator Weekend a La Carte Aurora Nights are now taking their clients there as part of an itinerary.
Abisko and Lofoten
With itineraries that include a stay in Abisko, a night at the famous Sky Station and then three nights exploring the fjords, mountains and fishing villages of Lofoten, adventurous travellers can get a real sense of the authentic Arctic wilderness. Springtime is the ideal time to visit, and there is a good chance the Northern Lights will be on show during this part of the trip. As Northern Lights holidays are becoming more and more popular, travellers are looking for new destinations and more ‘off the beaten track’ places to see the spectacle - and travel experts say Lofoten definitely fits the bill. Weekend a La Carte Aurora Nights introduced their Lofoten holiday last year and, thanks to the huge success and amount of attention it generated, are running it again in 2015.
Another attraction of this incredible part of the Arctic Circle is that fact that it has the largest positive temperature anomaly in the world relative to its latitude. Temperatures belie its geographic position and make the area an even more appealing place to visit.
Companies such as Weekend a La Carte Aurora Nights are dedicated to creating interesting and innovative itineraries to provide their clients the opportunity to explore this magnificent region up close and personal and experience the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis for themselves.
