The 2015 Northern Lights season kicked off in style this week, with a display so vivid they were seen as far south as Oslo - unusual at the best of times, let alone this early in the season. Following the display, Hurtigruten has confirmed it is extending its Northern Lights Promise.
Hurtigruten’s ships sail along the Norwegian coast, away from the effects of urban light pollution and directly beneath the Aurora Oval (the epicentre of Northern Lights activity). They are so confident they offer the best way to experience the Aurora Borealis, that all new bookings for the 12-day Classic Round Voyage departing between October 2015 and March 2016 inclusive will be eligible, regardless of how far in advance they are booked.
If the lights don’t appear during their voyage, guests will be given the choice of a free 7-day Classic Voyage North (Bergen to Kirkenes), or 6-day Classic Voyage South (Kirkenes to Bergen) in an inside twin cabin (voyage-only, b&b basis), departing between October 2016 and March 2017.
Free flights, plus wine or beer thrown in
Not only that, but those booking a voyage departing in October, November and December 2015, will also have their flights from London Heathrow or Gatwick thrown in and will enjoy wine or beer with their evening meals.
Prices for an inside cabin on full board basis (based on two sharing) and including the free flights and wine package start from £1,197, on a choice of dates (including 30 October 2015). Regional flights are available for small supplement.
Please refer to the Northern Lights Promise for full terms and conditions.
