Winter Holidays to Scandinavia: Explore the Arctic Circle
Winter Holidays to Scandinavia are renowned, and rightly so, there is nothing quite like an adventure inside the Arctic Circle. The air is clean, crisp and the landscapes are magical. Frozen lakes, Northern Lights and snow-laden trees make this area feel almost dreamlike. Scandinavia is home to the hardy Sami people, lots of reindeer and using snowshoeing and dogsledding as once an essential way of travel, this area offers a truly incredible range of winter activities that make for a holiday experience that is unforgettable.
The breathtaking Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are regularly seen from November to late April on clear nights in Scandinavia and latitudes close to the Arctic Circle.
Temperatures & daylight hours
Inside the Arctic circle, the sun remains just below the horizon during the day. But it is not dark as there is plenty of light reflected off the snow. The days lengthen quickly and by April there are more daylight hours than in the UK. Temperatures range from -30°C to +5°C with Christmas normally being the coldest lppand April is higher (around -10°C to +5°C). It is a dry cold, and when dressed correctly -20°C can actually feel very pleasant. So travel with Exodus and all your equipment and arctic clothing is included on most trips!
