The Aurora Zone wins Silver for Best Travel Company to Nordic Destinations in 2022 at the British Travel Awards

The original Northern Lights company, The Aurora Zone, has won silver for Best Travel Company to Nordic Destinations in 2022 at the British Travel Awards on Tuesday 29 November 2022.

The Aurora Zone is the UK’s only holiday brand dedicated solely to sharing the incredible Northern Lights (and was the first company to do so). It sets itself apart by working with local representatives in Finland, Norway, Iceland and Sweden, guaranteeing guests can fully immerse themselves in their holiday destination.

Having launched in 2018, the British Travel Awards is home to the largest poll of consumer opinion on the best companies operating in leisure travel. The awards have no affiliation or stakeholder interest with any travel or publishing companies; they are determined solely by the number of public votes cast. Over the last five years, an average of 312,000 individuals have registered their votes annually – this level of participation, combined with the straightforward voting process, has established the British Travel Awards as the gold standard for enterprises operating in the leisure travel sector.

The 2022 awards ceremony took place at Battersea Evolution in London and was a wonderful celebration of achievement for all companies recognised by customers as being best in the business. This year, thousands of people voted for their favourite tour operators – made even more special after two years of travel restrictions.

It was a close call for the Best Travel Company to Nordic Destinations in 2022. Canterbury Travel was awarded gold – just above The Aurora Zone – and Regent Holidays won bronze.

Amy Hope, Managing Director of The Aurora Zone, says: “It’s such an honour to receive this award, the team behind the scenes work really hard to make everyone’s holiday perfect, and our suppliers go above and beyond in the resorts to make every activity memorable. We absolutely love working with new suppliers to create exciting new trips for next year, and our current suppliers are building new experiences for our guests. This award makes it all worthwhile, thank you everyone who voted for us”.

With more than 60 activity holidays to Finland, Norway, Iceland and Sweden, The Aurora Zone is the company to travel with to see the Northern Lights. Plus, as we are entering a Solar Maximum (period of highest solar activity) the Northern Lights are displaying at their best for the next 4 or more years –it’s the perfect time to book a trip to see the aurora borealis. The Aurora Zone also works with expert-local guides and scientists in each destination that know how to give guests the best possible chance of seeing a spectacular Northern Light display.

This winter, The Aurora Zone has launched a wide range of exciting new trips to its destinations including two downhill skiing and Northern Lights trips to Finland, a brand-new gastronomy and Northern Lights trip to Iceland, plus a whale watching and Northern Lights sailing expedition in Norway.
