Wiltshire, UK (12th September, 2012) – Arctic Direct, a leading provider of specially-tailored holidays to the Arctic, has seen a rise in bookings for Northern Lights holidays due to next year’s Solar Maximum, which will allow holidaymakers to see the Lights at their clearest.
The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is a spectacular natural phenomenon caused when highly-charged electrons from solar winds mix with elements inside Earth’s upper-atmosphere; this creates a series of shimmering displays most likely seen in Greenland, Iceland, Northern Norway, Sweden and Finland, as well as Alaska and Canada. Many people travel north to see the Lights every year, and with the Solar Maximum expected in 2013, this number is increasing.
The Solar Maximum occurs on an 11-year cycle, and offers clearer, more vivid sightings of the Lights; Arctic Direct has seen a rise in interest for their Northern Lights holidays as people seek to make the most of the Maximum. Their range of packages offers a diverse selection of locations in which to see the Lights, whilst enjoying various activities and cultural excursions.
“Without a doubt, the Northern Lights are one of the most beautiful, striking sights anyone can experience, and the Solar Maximum offers us all a wonderful opportunity to see them at their clearest,” a spokesperson for Arctic Direct said. “Some of our Northern Lights packages are selling fast, so we advise anyone interested to book theirs as soon as they can. The Solar Maximum is sure to offer some stunning moments people will remember forever!”
