Hurtigruten Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are spectacular phenomena that illuminate the darkened skies with ripples of stunning colours and are truly a sight to behold. They are caused when particles from the sun collide with atoms in the Earth's atmosphere emitting photons of light, and it may be possible to see them on a Hurtigruten cruise. These magnificent voyages take you to some awe-inspiring parts of the world such as Norway where sightings of the Aurora Borealis are most common. Being at sea means that you are away from any light pollution from the mainland and given clear skies and the right conditions you may get the chance to witness one of nature's most fascinating displays.

Hurtigruten Northern Lights

Hurtigruten Northern Lights cruises are available from October to March when the phenomena are most frequently witnessed. Beautiful shapes in a multitude of colours glow eerily against the blackness of the night. Learn about the science behind their appearance in a series of lectures delivered onboard by a renowned astronomer, or discover how to capture their beauty on a digital photography course. There are also shore excursions available on many of the voyages where you are guided out into the icy wilderness in search of the mysterious Aurora Borealis. Over the years, the Northern Lights have inspired many myths and legends, poetry and works of art, and if you witness them for yourself it will be a breathtaking and unforgettable experience. Being natural phenomena, the lights can be somewhat elusive but with Hurtigruten Northern Lights cruises you know that you will have the best possible chance of seeing this magnificent sight, however this cannot be guaranteed.
