Bentours, Australia’s leading Scandinavian specialist, has announced an exclusive Follow the Lights tour of Norway and Finnish Lapland with only one departure date.

Following the success of the sell-out 2013 Follow the Lights tour, and predictions from NASA that this coming European winter will produce the best Northern Lights in a decade, this tour is bound to fill up fast. 

The special 14 day Follow the Lights tour has been carefully planned around the best vantage points for viewing the incredible Northern Lights phenomenon. Combining the expertise of knowledgeable guides, Bentours is offering travellers the best chance to witness the dazzling lights, known as aurora borealis.

Departing from Bergen, Norway, on 5th February 2014, the tour includes a seven day coastal voyage on board a Hurtigruten vessel along Norway’s picturesque fjords, taking in historic coastal towns, and Sami culture. The ship provides the perfect viewing platform to see the lights against the dark night sky, away from the glassigloo2 _2_artificial light of towns and cities.

Disembarking in Kirkenes, Norway, tour highlights for the second half of the trip include a husky dog safari through the icy wilderness, an overnight stay in a heated glass igloo where guests can admire the night sky from the comfort of their warm bed, as well as a visit to Rovaniemi, the home of Santa Claus and one of Finland’s best skiing areas.

Packages start from AU$4695 per person twin share departing from Bergen onWednesday 5th February 2014 and include 7 nights hotel accommodation in 4 star hotels, 6 nights Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage, first class rail from Rovaniemi to Helskinki, expert English speaking guide,  as well as 13 breakfasts and 11 dinners.
