Northern Lights Webinar - 18th June 2024

Join us for an enlightening travel webinar on 18th June 2024 showcasing nature’s own light show – the ethereal northern lights. The appearance of the aurora in skies above the UK in May acts as a wonderful reminder of the unpredictability of this majestic spectacle. Yet, the auroral oval which runs through Europe’s far north is still the best place to head for aurora hunters seeking the ultimate display.

Let us take you on a virtual journey through the Nordics with travel writer and photographer, Will Gray. He’ll talk through what causes the northern lights and the best months to witness them. He’ll also outline our collection of winter holidays and will then be joined by our panel including aurora expert, Sævar Helgi Bragason, award-winning guide, Cathy Harlow and Nordic Travel Specialist, Eric.
