Northern lights spectacular boosts interest in Arctic Circle travel

northern-lights-spectacularA rare and spectacular display of the Northern Lights visible in Britain last week has made people hungry to see more of the natural phenomenon that is usually only witnessed inside the Arctic Circle.

Tour operator Transun, a specialist in holidays to the Arctic Circle and on the official Northern Lights route, reports that web traffic to the remaining Northern Lights experiences of 2014 was up over 20 per cent compared to last week’s statistics.

Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, occur commonly in the Arctic Circle between late autumn and early spring and deliver light displays that are caused by collisions between electorally charged particles from the sun entering the earth’s atmosphere.

Displays in the Arctic Circle are both frequent and impressive, but it is extremely rare for the Northern Lights to be enjoyed extensively in the UK.
