Hoping to learn something a little different this year? Set your eyes to the skies and head to the beautiful region of Luleå, Sweden, to learn about constellations with a local astronomy specialist.

This four-night trip includes two guided evenings at an observatory to make the most of the dark skies and hopefully catch sight of the Northern Lights, plus other activities including an Aurora hunt by snowmobile-pulled sleigh and a visit to a traditional wood-fired sauna.

The cost is from £1,575 pp (two sharing), including flights (London), transfers, four nights’ full board, guided activities and cold weather clothing. Departures until 3 April.
