Northern Lights travel experts Off the Map Travel has launched a collection of experiences that allow travelers to view the magical Aurora from the water. “We have found that water can enhance the experience of hunting for the Northern Lights, adding relaxation, excitement and even spirituality,” founder Jonny Cooper says. “Our programs have been designed and refined with this in mind and reflect the distinctiveness of each location where we travel.”

The seven itineraries in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland give guests a choice of travel opportunities including viewing from a luxury yacht or kayak, from the ice on a frozen lake, while looking down over the fjords, or while floating in the Arctic waters.
