Please be aware that the Aurora does not appear every night, even when the sky is clear, and it also cannot be seen through cloud. We cannot therefore guarantee Aurora sightings at any time, including on New Moon Aurora dates.

It’s actually quite a common misconception that the #auroraborealis can only be seen in the winter months! When in fact, the #northernlights become active and visible in our skies come August. πŸ‚πŸŒŒ
We still have various space from mid August through mid October, if you are looking to book your #aurora adventure this year!✈️🧳
