Interest in viewing the Northern Lights continues to grow and a 'solar maximum' is predicted by NASA to continue into 2014/15. We have been fortunate to secure a limited number of seats on a direct charter flight from London Gatwick, Manchester and Cardiff (early booking recommended) to Tromsø during the favoured season for seeing the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis (viewing of the Northern Lights is not guaranteed). A stay in Tromsø, the Arctic capital and starting point of Amundsen’s and Nansen’s polar expeditions, is complemented by a dramatic Arctic cruise northwards through snowy Norwegian landscapes and seascapes to small, colourful ports. When gazing from the North Cape, Europe’s most northerly point, out to sea, one’s thoughts may turn to the English explorer, Richard Chancellor, who named it.
