Cruise holidays to see the Northern Lights are rising in popularity among Brits, and it's not difficult to work out why. Being on the deck of a ship at at sea, far away from artificial light pollution yet a stone's throw away from your cosy cabin and a hot toddy or three, you're in a pretty ideal place for Borealis-spotting.
This year sees a number of new cruises to the Arctic Circle, Greenland and Norway, many with some great deals. And with 2013 predicted to be one of the most active for this natural phenomena, this is a good moment to consider floating away under the colourful sky.
