Jono Archer

Working within the Product and Operations Department, Jono helps to create new and exciting holidays for The Aurora Zone, as well as managing existing ones. Jono's most memorable travel experience is a snowy morning in December, in the heart of the Norwegian fjords.

Layering up with a full thermal suit, mittens, hat and googles and hopping aboard a high-powered speedboat, he sped across the calm waters of the fjords, marvelling at the sheer, snow-dusted granite walls and the icy blue waters below.Twisting from side to side, zooming down narrow fjords inaccessible to most and getting sprayed by the water of a tumbling waterfall, were all amazing experiences. However, spotting porpoises and golden eagles was the real highlight and the trip was rounded off nicely with a stop at a local village for a hot drink and some local cheese; a real delight!

Jono's favourite Aurora Zone destination is Sorbyn, in Sweden. With its charming accommodation, amazing food and beautiful frozen landscapes, Sorbyn is a wonderful winter retreat. Snowmobiling, husky safaris and snowshoeing; what more could you want? Renowned for its food, it is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy sumptuous local cuisine after a day of winter activities.

The Aurora Zone was born out of our love of all things wintery. We were already regular visitors to the likes of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland thanks to a fascination with winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and the Scandinavian way of life. Many of our visits coincided with sightings of the Northern Lights and The Aurora Zone was born from a desire to share Mother Nature’s greatest wonder with as many people as possible. We have all been held in the Aurora’s thrall and our mission is to do our very best to ensure that our clients can experience that magical moment on their Northern Lights holiday.
