Have some heat
All Northern Lights Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
HaHa No Sorry Reykjavik (excited)
Is this a Blackpool illuminations deal? ;-)
For those of a certain age, "Northern lights in a happy tin has very different connotations ;)
Have to agree. The cost of living in Iceland is 67% higher than in the UK so everything is going to be more expensive than here.
I know 2 days isn't long to spend much, but be aware Iceland is very expensive. I spend more money in 5 days there than I did in 16 days in the Philippines. Reykjavik is absolutely stunning tho. I would love to go back one day.
Arrgh! So want to go, got 2 days to persuade someone else to go. Heat and torment. :S
No contest has to be Reykjavik.
11 year solar cycle
So only about 50 quid more, still happy with that
It's 4314 it's because you were clicking the 'bed in a sleeping compartment' rather than booking the whole thing out for two. Cheers.
I'm getting 3780 SEK. Email them and ask for the price for a sleeper compartment for 2/3 but you want it just for two and not to share with a third person. If may be good to call them as they do speak English. Their own website says: Parties of two or more travellers may book the entire compartment for themselves. If only two people are sharing the compartment, a child's price is charged for the third bed.
Yes I did, they have only been released in the last 10 days - 2 weeks. I kept emailing them and bugging them! Timings appear to have changed a little too, unless I missing something:
They are normally pretty stable with their pricing, did you look as soon as booking opened? When I booked I kept an eye on prices each week as they released the dates close to when I wanted and when they finally released the date I needed it was the same.
You are very welcome!
just let it go
Yes, it is but nore interactive as there is a snowflake you can wave your hand above and Elsa reacts to it. They glow in the same colour.
Is this similar to the snow glow Elsa?
You are very welcome. I just don't understand how this is not going hot
Thank you! My three year old has been begging for this for weeks but it was always so expensive. Have ordered one for Christmas! HEAT!
Can you post a direct link? The current one redirects me to the homepage. Hope its still available
Love the look of this. Thanks for posting it
We went on the Nordlys (Hurtigruten) but I think all their ships will be similar. Breakfast was help yourself - all sorts from cereal to meat, fish, fruit etc. Lunch was help yourself - several dishes to choose from and lots of sides, salads etc. Dinner was on a table with 6 others. Same table every night. Waiter service. Set menu - very good. If you have an allergy or something, just tell them when you book, or at the beginning and they will cater for you for dinner. Food was fantastic. Wines etc. expensive. Same price as on the mainland, but that is expensive.
Battery needs charging.
I am indeed :-) hopefully warmer Christmas than it was in the Antarctic last year.
I need help to do something like this. Want to take my 5 kids next Christmas season so best get doing my homework now!!!
It is the same price as the screen shot, works out at £200, that's for a private cabin. It may be cheaper to fly to Kiruna and then add transfers to Abisko but when you allow transport to and from airports and a night accommodation costs and time it's actually more cost effective using the train;
How much extra did you pay to have the cabin to yourselves? Agree, it's a great idea to travel overnight on the train.
Yes I really do recommend the night trains. The Swedish ones come up with the Venice to Vienna ones as my top rated. You can save money by sharing a cabin bur we paid extra for the two of us. We took some food and a bottle of wine and it was lovely. Wandering up and down the cabin in your pj's and we saw the lights from the chain too. When accommodation is so expensive the trains are actually good value.
Hot hot hot. Abisko has been on my to-do list for years and years. Every year it seems to get more popular so I better act on it. This trip looks fantastic, and the night train looks much better than many other European night trains! Defo gonna be looking into this one!
Oh you had a good show of the lights didn't you! I'm so pleased you enjoyed it, I'd only pick places I'd stay in myself or in some cases have visited myself too. It's good to know some people do actually book these trips and enjoy them too! It's made my day, thanks for reporting back. It's made me want to go back and do a similar trip next year!!
We loved everything and are very grateful to you. If you do Facebook and look up Husky Tours Lapland there are 24 new photos on there. One has 2 people in (that's me and my daughter). We saw the lights :D Loved the train,sky station, Abisko National Park, dog sledding, snow skis and your accommodation recommendations were spot on. Thank you
Awwww thanks for letting me know. Did you get on OK? Did you like the overnight trains and most important did you get to see the lights?
Just to say a big thank you. Just got back from a magical break :)
I'd start to look into it now and consider the different companies available. You should be OK to sort when you get there as long as you aren't particular on a certain company ans on a particular night. You are in a good position as you have four nights to pick from!
Yep they sure are I think they run up until the end of Feb/March!!
Will the excursions like reindeer sledging etc still be possible in Feb? I'm trying to find a suitable family break in Feb.
I'm sort of glad you've said that because when we go we've only got 2.5 days there including excursions and I was thinking it was going to be rushed but glad I'll be able to get everything done! Just need to buy some warm clothes now!! Think I'll be picking pot noodles haha!!
Great deal price wise, but two and half days exploring Tromso might be a bit much, it's basically one street and a church! Also be warned Tromso is very expensive for eating, transport etc. You can do it on a budget, but it's limiting. Have fun and wrap up very warm!
Glad I could help! Doing it myself in 2 weeks, can't wait!
Hi Nick, Hope you don't mind me asking but how much are you paying for the holiday? And have you any more details as I am looking to book a trip also. Cheers Matt
Not alot really there is a description on the website, the screen shot has some of the description in there. I just think the bathrooms may be a bit closer but that's all. There was another hostel I looked at too here although you may need to use Chrome to translate.
PS rachel whats the difference between the 2 hostels on the page? i can't really find any info on either of them?
Ah yes, I thought you meant for the dates here! Yes the private ones are popular.
it seems to depend on the date - i guess for the dates i was looking at the private ones are all gone!
£7.99 with membership for me
Showing as free for me still. You need to be signed in.
£7.99 for me too
Just looked. Its £7.99 :-(
Thanks (and to the OP as well, of course). Seems you need to do as two separate orders since only one promo code is allowed.
You've learnt WELL my young apprentice ..... hehehehe lol. :-)
Something to be careful about. By default, the free order includes a 30 day free trial of Audible, after which you will be charged. I almost fell for it but spotted the 'remove item' option before placing the order.
I'll take a free audiobook wherever possible (trying to walk myself fit arm) because they are so expensive! Thanks a lot op. :)
Sunshine Stacey can you find me a holiday for 2 adults long haul possibly the Caribbean coast / Mexico. Leaving on or after aug 12th 4* or 5* all inclusive for less than £900 per person? Preferable airport Newcastle upon Tyne but Willing to travel?
Hi Stacey. I'm looking for Xmas hol23rd dec. 10 nights. 2x adults 1x4yo. 1x1yo. I if you can find anything. Thanks.
It's a marketing ploy. If the chance of seeing the lights is 1% it will be advertised as Northern lights. Northern lights = click thru sales = commission. Sad times.
bbbbbbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! Is not minus 30C already in October???
Including Northern Lights in title is very misleading.
Needs expiring, outbound flights not available at quoted price
any offer for flight ticket to US for 4 person in August around 3 weeks?
Who do you call about this deal?
Wow your holidays sound like military operations! Some of us like to be a bit more relaxed and actually take in the experience! We've done many fly/drive USA holidays, some being 3500+ miles. We take it at a leisurely pace, pleasing ourselves how long we stay at each place based on how much there is left to see and how much we're enjoying the area. If we miss places, we can always go back :D. I agree the Northern Lights sounds like a great idea to break up the journey home.
Anyone needing the "ABOUT" small print, it would appear hukd paying sunshine stacey should be severely frowned upon.. Although the commissions piece is clearly stated, as would be expected.. HotUKDeals.com was founded in August 2004 as a place for consumers to freely share deal tips, voucher codes and other consumer information. The purpose of the site is to escape from the marketing messages and ads that surround us and get genuine advice from other people about hot deals. No self-promotion or marketing Any type of self-promotion or recommendation where the person profits is severely frowned upon. The basis of the site is that it is for honest tips from other people who don't stand to gain. Merchants who are found self-promoting are banned from the site. Anyone can share and vote Registration is free and open to everyone. The more members we have sharing and contributing their tips, the more everyone gains! You can help build this community by sharing deals you've found, voucher codes you know of, giving advice and insight on deals listed, or just being a friendly member! How HotUKDeals is funded We don't run banner ads on the site, sell ad space, use your email address for marketing or sell your details to other parties. The site is funded by using commission links on merchants where HUKD receives a commission if a product is purchased. As members submit and vote on deals we believe this keeps the site unbiased.
best time to see the lights at the end of the year is sep-oct does anyone know what the chances of seeing them at the very start of december is ?
Done 7 night's and it was brilliant... fantastic skiing,
yeah I think a bit too long as well. I fancy about three nights then it doesn't eat into my annual leave either
7 days may be a little long , but price wise to a real bargain for 3 nights easyjet we are paying £189 flights, £90 accomodation and transfers £25
hi, don't want to hijack this thread but could one of the holiday gurus do there thing for holidays in august again. I missed the last lot and my situation has changed and can know go. selfish but what would suite me is 2 adults + 1x16 + 1x14 flying from london airport ( gatwick/heathrow) middle of august for 7or 11 nights. any location considered. any way hot deal. voted. pete
