Collette’s polar adventures

THE Northern Lights have continued to prove a drawcard for tourists heading to Iceland and Finland, with demand prompting Collette to add new tours to the destinations.

The fresh additions are The Northern Lights of Finland and Iceland’s Magical Northern Lights, with the itineraries packing in stays in boutique accommodation and adventures from ice walking to dog sledding.

“There has been so much interest in the Northern Lights that we have added new tours to Iceland and Finland, including them in our new Explorations small group journeys,” said James Hewlett, head of marketing at Collette.

Collette reminded agents limited accommodation in Iceland means that bookings need to be made early.

The company will soon introduce a new itinerary which features Iceland and a cruise to pristine Greenland in the heart of the Arctic Circle.

The Greenland & Iceland: A Nordic-Inspired Voyage cruises through the fjords aboard MV Ocean Atlantic and ambles across geological wonders. The adventure passes vibrantly coloured homes throughout rugged terrain in Sisimiut and enters the Arctic Circle to encounter Disko Bay. Travellers will see the Eqip Sermia Glacier, Greenland’s most active glacier, and in Iceland travel along the Golden Circle and discover the capital city of Reykjavik.

Collette offers two tours for travellers looking to explore Antarctica. Collette’s Adventure to Antarctica and “Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent itineraries both start and finish in Buenos Aires and cross the Drake Passage.
