Rather than hunting for the Northern Lights on land, visitors can now take to the water in a luxury catamaran on which by day guests will search for wildlife and enjoy the local islands and scenery, and at night hunt for the Northern Lights!
With the chance to get away from the city lights and chase the best of the clear skies – taking to the water can give both versatility for a Northern Lights hunt as well as giving guests a greater connection with the Arctic environment.
The Northern lights hunt from the water also includes the chance for guests to get hands on and catch their own dinner, with the onboard chef preparing and cooking the catch, and learn navigation skills and even take the helm.
Off the Map Travel (www.offthemap.travel) have suggested a new three-day Sail Under the Aurora itinerary including Aurora hunting and wildlife cruise from £1595 per person, not including flights. This includes quality hotel accommodation for two nights with one night aboard a luxury catamaran; a guided snowshoe hike; fishing, wildlife and Northern Lights experience and transfers.
