Northern Lights & Lapland Birds

From: £Contact us

Lapland is a fantastic location for seeing the Aurora Borealis and is rich in Arctic birds, so why not join us on this superb week-long trip to the Finnish taiga forest and Norwegian coast?

We start among the conifers of Finland's taiga forest, home to Siberian tit, Siberian jay and pine grosbeak, before crossing into Norway, where sheltered coastal waters have three species of eider in stunning plumage, and are teeming with seabirds. In March there is plenty of daylight, while nights are still long enough to give us a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights, in all their glory. We'll also do some astronomy here – birding telescopes and even binoculars can be excellent for this.
