Cruise north in search of the mysterious spectacle of the Aurora Borealis – one of Earth’s greatest natural wonders, which simply must be seen to be believed.

The extraordinary and dazzling dancing lights of this curious phenomenon that occasionally illuminates the northern skies is truly remarkable, and one of the best ways to see the Northern Lights is on an ocean cruise.

Cruise through the dramatic landscapes of the fjords and the far north, stepping ashore to explore remote towns by day and then returning to the ship to gaze skywards in search of the magical illuminations by night. Balmoral offers dedicated Northern Lights cruises that sail to Iceland or Norway in late autumn or early spring. 

On these classic voyages, you’ll discover the glorious natural paradise, beguiling villages and waterside towns. Some of our cruises will include passages through the mighty fjords, while longer voyages might journey even further north, to the stunning Lofoten Isles or way beyond the Arctic Circle to the very tip of Europe.

Whichever cruise you choose to take to see the Aurora Borealis, our range of Northern Lights cruises will be truly unforgettable.
