Tick the Northern Lights off your bucket list on one of these stargazing small-group adventures.

The Northern Lights are one of nature’s most enthralling spectacles, illuminating the sky with ethereal green ripples – and sometimes hints of violet and red. In destinations such as Iceland and Alaska, hunting for the aurora borealis can be combined with many other exhilarating adventures, including husky sledding, glacier hiking and snowmobiling. To help you prepare for the experience of a lifetime, we’ve picked out several small-group trips – all bookable with Culture Trip – to some of the best places to see the Northern Lights.
