Experience Aurora Borealis with Kirker Holidays

Experience Aurora Borealis with Kirker Holidays

Kirker Holidays is offering tailor-made itineraries to three Nordic destinations this winter.

Whilst there is always an element of luck (and favourable weather conditions) involved in Aurora Borealis sightings, the operator has chosen remote parts of Iceland and Scandinavia (where light pollution is at a minimum) for its Northern Lights trips.

It has also included the expertise of a local guide to maximise the chance of clients witnessing a display.

Kirker can tailor-make short breaks and multi-centre itineraries to suit clients’ specific requirements and budgets, across Iceland, Sweden and Norway this winter, including the following sample itineraries:

ICELAND
Reykjavik & the Golden Circle
The price is from £1,522 pp (two sharing), including flights (London), private car transfers, three nights’ accommodation with breakfast at the four-star Hotel Borg in Reykjavik, an evening Northern Lights excursion and full-day ‘super jeep’ excursion to the Golden Circle, both with local guides.

… with a South Iceland Extension: Add a two-night stay in the rural south of Iceland at the four-star Hotel Ranga, where open-air Jacuzzis provide a luxurious spot from which to view the Northern Lights.

A five-night holiday, combining three nights at the Hotel Borg (package as above) with two nights at Hotel Ranga, is from £2,634 pp (two sharing), including private car transfers and a full-day super jeep excursion to the scenic black sands and waterfalls of Iceland’s South Shore with a local guide.
