Northern Lights cruises from the UK

For many, catching a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights is a life goal. Heading there on a cruise is a great way to try and fulfil this dream because of how many options cruising offers you, from short Northern Lights mini-break cruises to longer expeditions exploring the best of Northern Scandinavia and Iceland, you can tailor the trip to your needs.

On your journey, you can expect to view such wonders as the Norwegian Fjords, majestic waterfalls, and you might even witness some volcanic activity in Iceland, so there is a lot more up for grabs on such a cruise than just the Northern Lights.

The fact is, the UK has an expansive range of no-fly Northern Lights-inspired cruise trips, offered by many stand-out cruise lines such as P&O Cruises, Saga Cruises, Cunard Line, and prominent newcomer Ambassador Cruise Line.

Hurtigruten Expeditions even offers a 'Northern Lights Promise' which means that on some cruises, if during the trip the magnificent beams of light do not make an appearance, you can have another voyage - free of charge - on one of their Coastal Express experiences. Of course, the hope is that on these expertly designed trips you'll get to see the famed lights - but it is nice to know that a cruise line has got you covered.
