Northern EU Cruises NORTHERN EUROPE CRUISES

Northern Lights Cruises 2023

Cruises to Northern Lights typically depart from one of the cities in Northern Europe, such as Bergen, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Kiel, London Tilbury, Southampton, which are among the most popular departure ports. An aurora borialis, or Northern Lights, is a natural light display in the sky that is typically seen in locations that are located at high latitudes. Auroras are also sometimes referred to as the polar lights. Auroras are characterized by ever-changing patterns of bright lights that can extend across the entire sky and take the form of curtains, rays, spirals, or dynamic flickers. Although Norway is likely the nation that sees the most visitors on a cruise to see the Northern Lights, Iceland is also an excellent option. There aren't many natural occurrences that can grab one's mind quite like the Northern Lights. A cruise is one of the best ways to see this spectacle. When you're at sea, you're not surrounded by the light pollution that you find in cities, so your odds of seeing the night sky in its full glory are considerably higher than they are when you're on land. This mysterious natural phenomena can typically be observed at its finest between the months of December and March, when there are more hours of darkness and the night sky is relatively clear (though you can sometimes see the northern lights starting as early as August). Even if you don't get a chance to see the Northern Lights while you're on your trip, you'll still have plenty of other reasons to fall in love with these intriguing sites, such as the fantastic dog-sledding or the trekking through the magnificent fjords. Each Northern Lights cruise features a one-of-a-kind combination of thrilling activities and luxurious amenities, all of which are designed to make the most out of every moment.
