Holiday companies like to take travellers away to see the sights but one activity holiday firm says it wants its customers to see the lights.
(TRAVPR.COM)UK - July 26th, 2011 - Morpeth-based activity holiday specialist Activities Abroad are set for expansion after launching The Aurora Zone (http://www.theaurorazone.com) – 10 holidays based around experiencing the wonder of the Northern Lights at a time when NASA are forecasting the best auroras for 50 years.
Director Alistair McLean, marketing manager Steph Eddy and the company’s product development managers spent time in Norway, Finland and Sweden earlier this year.
They researched accommodation, transportation and other optional activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, tours of the IceHotel, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and more.
The resulting Northern Lights holiday packages provide unique opportunities to “Chase the Northern Lights” in the company of an expert local guide.
McLean said: “We have been taking parties on activity holidays to Norway, Finland and Sweden for eight years, so we know first-hand that to see the Northern Lights is a stunning experience.
“Many of our holidaymakers tell us they are among their most treasured memories, so it made sense to organise dedicated Northern Lights holidays.
“One of the most impressive aspects of the experience is the fact that the lights are never the same twice since they change depending on the ferocity of the sun’s activity, solar winds and the altitude at which they collide with gases in the earth’s atmosphere.”
