Northern Lights continues to top wish-list polls

The Northern Lights has continued to be named as the top ‘must see’ experience amongst British travellers following a survey by The Adventure Company. The company’s study of 8,000 travellers found that 16 percent of Brits would most like to see the Aurora Borealis, although Machu Picchu followed closely with 15.7 percent. Claire Wilson, managing director of The Adventure Company said the success was due to television and a star-gazing trend. “It seems that recent shows such as the BBC’s “Wonders of the Solar System” and Joanna Lumley’s own Northern Lights experiences have really inspired us Brits to look up for holiday inspiration,” she said. “Coupled with natural displays such as a partial eclipse of the sun and a meteor shower being visible in a few fortunate corners of the UK over the last few months along with last month’s super moon, it looks like the UK’s fascination with ‘star-gazing’ on their travels may finally be moving away from C-list celebrities.” Other experiences in the list included the Himalaya, Galapagos, Amazon and the rainforest.
