The Aurora Zone

The Aurora Zone is launching a new form of Aurora hunting this winter in the tiny and remote village of Nellim in Finnish Lapland – heated Aurora Sleighs.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - June 20th, 2014 - Pulled by snowmobiles, the snug sleds – complete with heating, comfy seating and transparent walls and roof – allow guests to be transported through the Arctic wilderness, to admire the night sky in style (and warmth) from the back of a moving sleigh.

Embark on an Aurora Sleigh Safari and travel in one of these Northern Lights-viewing cocoons 250km north of the Arctic Circle which, deep in the light pollution-free wilderness, is home to many fantastic vantage points. Here, in the midst of a frozen lake, you’ll be served warm berry juice. Alternatively, opt for the sleigh ride and a romantic dinner à deux at an Aurora Camp on Lake Inari. Travelling to and from the camp by sled, the guide-turned-chef will put together a three-course meal which you’ll enjoy in an intimate and mesmerising setting around an open fire.

“We’ve been wracking our brains to come up with a solution to one of the most common problems associated with hunting for the Northern Lights – the cold,” comments Alistair McLean, Founder of The Aurora Zone. “All too often we are asked whether there’s a way of seeing the Aurora Borealis whilst remaining warm, despite being deep within the Arctic Circle. Well, here’s the solution: it’s private, it’s intimate, it’s fun and, best of all, it’s warm.”

Last year, The Aurora Zone launched the highly-popular Aurora Bubbles – heated pods – and these brand-new heated Aurora Sleighs follow a similar concept, with the added – and considerable – bonus  of being transported around (in comfort and warmth) whilst scanning the night sky, in search of the Northern Lights.


An active Aurora in the Wild trip to Nellim costs from £2,090 pp (two sharing) including flights (London), transfers, six nights’ full-board accommodation, all activities including cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, husky safari, a day with a reindeer herder and Northern Lights hunts, plus cold-weather clothing. The trip also includes an Aurora Sleigh Safari. The Aurora Sleigh Ride and Dinner costs an additional £105 pp. To talk to an expert, call The Aurora Zone (01670 785 012,

Note to editors: The Aurora Zone is a brand of Activities Abroad. The Aurora Zone is the only dedicated Northern Lights holiday company and 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.
