Northern Lights competition

15 October 2012 by Luke McCormick

Leading tailor-made travel company, Best Served Scandinavia by WEXAS, has launched a brilliant competition, to win an Arctic adventure in Norway's Tromsø - one of the best places on earth to see the Northern Lights.

The prize includes three nights in Tromso, one of Norway's most vibrant cities, and an aurora-hunting husky expedition that includes a stay at a traditional Sami camp. The prize is valued at £2,000 and includes flights, transfers, B&B accommodation in Tromsø, full board Sami camp stay and activities.

To enter, simply visit our Northern Lights competition page and describe your dream Scandinavian trip in less than 150 words.

WEXAS Channel Editor Luke McCormick, said: "For this prize we really wanted to show off the very best of the Northern Lights in this solar maximum year - when the aurora will be the most spectacular it's been for more than 50 years."

"As a specialist Scandinavia tour operator, we're continually on the look out for the very best experiences on offer in the region, and we think a few days in lively Tromsø with a husky ride at a Sami camp to spot the Northern Lights is as good as it gets."

"We know that for a lot of travellers it's the exciting activities available in Scandinavia - from husky sledding and snowmobiling to reindeer safaris and wilderness excursions - that make the region so appealing."

"We hope this prize inspires travellers to get creative and look at the region in a new light - we can't wait to share their ideas."
