Northern Lights viewed from Hurtigruten vessel

With demand for the Northern Lights higher than ever, Hurtigruten has launched its 2012/13 winter brochure, packed with dedicated Northern Lights itineraries. The northern winter just gone, saw some incredible Northern Lights sightings and next winter is expected to see similar solar activity, fuelling excitement from customers eager to catch a glimpse. The brochure contains all Hurtigruten’s winter product in one place and is eye catching, and an ideal tool for agents to help capture the increase in demand. Overall, prices lead in at just £744pp for a five-night ‘Voyage South’.

Kathryn Beadle, Managing Director at Hurtigruten UK comments: ‘ We are yet again seeing an enormous demand from customers who want to experience the Northern Lights this winter, which shows no sign of decreasing. By doubling the number of charter departures we anticipate doubling our winter business and so far signs show we are on track to do this.’

‘What is also quite positive is that our competitors have seen the success we have had and are themselves introducing Northern Lights cruises, which we see as testament to our success. We view any competition as healthy not only to us but good for the industry as a whole as this further raises the profile of this unique experience.’

A summary of what you will find inside the 2012/13 winter brochure:
· Captivating Astronomy voyage departures accompanied by expert lecturers.
