Our family is quite unusual in that we are not afraid of a bit of adventure. If that means scouring the four corners of the earth looking for it then we will. It seems that our journey around Lapland during the recent solar maximum in 2013/14 caused quite a lot of people to be interested in us and to want to know a little but more about our plans.

Below you will find details of press and TV articles about our travels and about what we do now on our Northern Lights Holidays

PBS & BBC Forces of Nature


In February 2015 a BBC film crew spent a week with us chasing the Northern Lights for a multi-title co-production among PBS, BBC and BBC Worldwide North America: Forces of Nature with Brian Cox.

This was broadcast in July 2016 on UK channel BBC1. Following this the series was broadcast on Australia’s ABC channel and in the rest of Europe. It broadcast on US channel PBS in September 2016, our episode is showing on September 28th 2016 at 7pm/8pm. Full details of the broadcast of our Northern Lights adventure in Forces of Nature on PBS  can be viewed here.

BBC Forces of Nature book and Kindle edition on Amazon is also available in print form and Kindle edition on Amazon.

There is also YouTube promotion (UK only) of the BBC Forces of Nature trailer below.

 

 

The Guardian

2013_12_20_theguardian_article_websiteBefore leaving the UK in December 2013 Becki wrote an article for the Guardian newspaper which featured in their pre-Christmas edition in the travel section.

It was an exciting time if not a little unfortunate with the timing that she had to write it and submit it only days before we left, when there was a gazillion other things to sort out.

Still, in it went and Becki got full credit as the author. It was published around about the same time we crossed the Finnish border and it gained us a lot of interest both in the UK and Norway.

Nordlys

2014_01_05_nordlys_interview_video_article_websiteAnother local paper Nordlys (meaning Northern Lights in Norwegian funnily enough) did an article on us and also a video interview. At that point we hadn’t really gone much further than Tromsø and had only seen the lights a few times. We got quite a few waves from other drivers and people approaching us to see how we all were. The Norwegian people are really the friendliest people.

iTromsø

2014_01_05_itromso_interview_video_article_websiteOnce in Tromsø we were interviewed by i Tromsø a newspaper covering the surrounding area of Troms. They took some photographs of us in CLONA (she has Aurora Addicts on the side so we are quite easy to spot) and we found people we didn’t know coming up to ask how our journey was going.

George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight

Aurora Addicts on CBC George StroumboulopoulosGeorge Stroumboulopoulos – a Canadian TV presenter with a very difficult name to spell and to read – approached us and asked if he could use some of our pictures and mention us on his George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight website. We would have loved to pop over for a visit but it’s a little out off our planned route….Maybe one day we can make it over your side of the pond. Alaska and Canada are most definitely on our bucket lists.
