There is no other break more perfect to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life than a trip to see the Northern Lights and truly experience nature.
The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis to give them their true name, are a truly amazing site that can only be seen from a handful of destinations. The Arctic Direct Northern Lights holiday destination is Kiruna by Abisko. Abisko is a tiny village in Northern Sweden and was recently voted one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights due to the low levels of cloud cover and its place on the Aurora “Halo” – the area of most activity.
