Fly to the Arctic Wilderness

Monday 30 December 2013

Lapland specialist Transun has announced an additional departure in their Northern Lights programme departing from Exeter Airport this winter. 

The three-night break departs from Exeter on 13 March 2014 and travellers stay in hotels in Karesuando, a village divided by the Sweden/Finland border situated on the official Northern Lights Route (designated as such by the governments of Finland, Sweden and Norway).

The airport has teamed up with Transun to offer a once-in-a-lifetime break in Lapland, which is ideal for those seeking the Northern Lights or wishing to try their hand at mushing a team of huskies through the Arctic.

Also included in the package is a snowmobile safari, where guests can drive their own snowmobile down a frozen river, and a Northern Lights forest trek which ends at a spectacular viewpoint overlooking the snow-filled fell.

With NASA predicting that the winter of 2013/14 is likely to be the best winter in decades to see the Northern Lights because of increased solar activity, chances of spotting the fabled Aurora Borealis have never been better.

Transun’s James Crawshaw said: “Transun is delighted to be operating this very special departure from Exeter, offering those in the south west the opportunity to visit a real wilderness area of the Arctic, far from mass-market commercialised resorts.’

Richard Broadley, commercial manager of the airport added: “We are pleased Transun has chosen to operate this unique holiday from Exeter Airport: this adventure is unlike any other leaving from the airport this winter, and gives an exciting alternative to cruise-based or flight-only Northern Lights departures.”

Established in 1982, Transun is an independent tour operator offering a selection of charter departures to Lapland from the UK.
