Aurora Zone Recommends Autumn Equinox Break

March 2018 has witnessed some of the best Northern Lights activity in recent years and, according to experts at The Aurora Zone, this could be repeated in the coming autumn.

The increased Auroral activity is not the only reason to take a Northern Lights trip in autumn. Less cloud cover makes sightings easier, seasonal colours provide a stunning backdrop, temperate weather means more comfortable Aurora hunting conditions and lakes and rivers, which have not yet frozen, often reflect the Aurora for double the effect.

An example of such a trip is Wilderness Auroras during the Finnish Autumn, which is based in Menesjärvi in Finnish Lapland. Daytime activities provide ample opportunities to experience Finnish ‘ruska’, the time of year when the leaves turn to rust. Included are a visit to a reindeer farm, a guided nature walk and a trip to meet huskies at a neighbouring farm.

Menesjärvi’s isolated wilderness setting is ideal for Aurora hunting. Far from any significant light pollution, the location has some of the darkest skies in Northern Scandinavia. The trip's itinerary features a Northern Lights workshop which offers tips on Aurora photography techniques. Guests will venture into the wilderness on two Aurora hunts in the company of an expert guide who will determine the best vantage points should an Aurora emerge from the darkness.

Priced from £1,495 per person (based on two sharing), this four-night trip includes flights from London, transfers, four nights’ full board, activities as listed and expert guides. Departures are throughout September and October 2018.
