Aurora Bubbles

The tiny, remote Finnish town of Nellim, a true Northern Lights hotspot, is now home to Aurora Bubbles – available exclusively via The Aurora Zone.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 8th, 2013 - Reminiscent of something from a science-fiction movie, Aurora Bubbles are heated pods within comfortable walking distance of the Nellim Wilderness Hotel, each with a double bed and toilet area. Ideal for scanning the night sky in the hope of a Northern Lights show, they are situated just a few hundred yards from the main building to give guests as genuine a wilderness experience as possible.

Located beside Lake Inari, Nellim boasts glorious surroundings and only very limited light pollution – making it the perfect setting for searching for the Northern Lights.  That explains why a) Nellim has an outstanding Borealis-viewing record, and b) why The Aurora Zone’s MD, Alistair McLean, has opted to holiday there for seven years running and has seen the lights each and every time!

Autumn 2013 has now been specified by NASA as the peak of our present Solar Maximum –science-speak for the best Northern Lights in a decade.  Every 11 years the sun reaches the crest of its cycle of activity (the Solar Maximum), and this translates to the time when the Northern Lights are at their finest and most frequent.

Last year, The Aurora Zone debuted a pioneering series of ‘Autumn Lights’ tours – perfect for those who want to (hopefully!) experience the Aurora Borealis without having to brave freezing-cold conditions.  Alternatively go to Nellim this winter for the likelihood of a classic, snow-covered Northern Lights spectacle.



An active, four-night Autumn Lights over Lake Inari trip to Nellim costs from £1,480 pp (two sharing) with flights, all transport, full board including a night in an Aurora Bubble and activities such as two night-time stake-outs at Aurora Camps, and a gold-panning expedition.  Available Sep-Nov.  Call The Aurora Zone on 01670 785012.


A gentle, four-night Aurora Quest trip to Nellim costs from £1,820 pp (two sharing) with flights, all transport, full board including a night in an Aurora Bubble and activities such as a sleigh tour of Nellim, night-time minibus searches for the Northern Lights and a husky safari.  Available Dec-Mar.  Call The Aurora Zone on 01670 785012.

Note to editors: The Aurora Zone is a brand of Activities Abroad.  The company has been offering Northern Lights tours for ten years; Autumn Lights trips were new in 2012.  The Aurora Zone was created to highlight the innovative concept of Aurora-hunting (actively going out to seek the lights rather than remaining in one location) and to promote the fact that the current seasons offer the best opportunity to see the Northern Lights in a decade.
