Take off during Europe's winter - right on time to catch the Northern Lights.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Last year it seemed as though everybody was hightailing it to Iceland to gaze upon its pristine landscapes and chase its Northern Lights. Well, not this year.

According to numerous travel publications, one of the destinations tipped to be big for tourists in 2017 is Finland. With its Baltic architecture, ice hotels and burgeoning foodie scene, it is one of the coolest places to be. Then, let's not forget the fact that it's also one of the top places to see the Northern Lights.

Curious? Then listen up. British Airways and Qantas are giving you the chance to be one of the first to see the country this year for less. It's currently selling seats to the Finnish capital of Helsinki from as little as $835 return.

This low price is for flights departing from Melbourne, however flights from other major Australian cities are also available at similar prices. These include: Perth to Helsinki from $868 return, Brisbane to Helsinki from $872 return and Sydney to Helsinki from $942 return.

The catch? The flights for this price are last-minute departures in February and March 2017. Arguably, these dates fall during the harsh Finnish winter - but on the upside it means you'll arrive within prime viewing time of the northern lights, making it ideal for anyone wishing to tick the natural phenomenon off their bucket list asap.

The flights in this sale are operated by British Airways, Qantas and JAL and will include a stopover in Tokyo, Japan.
