PREMIUM AURORA EXPERIENCE
Treat yourself and your loved ones with the best aurora hunting experience you can imagine. This private Northern Lights tour is organised by an aurora expert guide who will do everything possible to find the auroras for you. The tour has been designed to offer all the best features for a successful aurora hunt!
The tour lasts up to 6 hours, which allows to drive very far (up to 300km around Rovaniemi) to find clear sky and observe the auroras. Driving far might be the only way to find northern lights, especially when the weather is challenging in Rovaniemi. By staying out for a longer time, you also get the opportunity to see more in the sky and will not miss any Northern lights if they appear late in the night!
The tour is private, allowing for an intimate experience adapted to your needs and requests. A specific start time will be suggested, based on our analysis of the weather and conditions (a brief report will be send to you in the morning to inform you about our analysis of the conditions) but it can also be adapted to your timetable. During the experience, you may always decide together with your guide if you would like to change locations to experience something else or stay longer at the specific place because you enjoy it. You are also free to decide to return home at any time when you feel fully satisfied. Basically, this is YOUR experience.
Your guide will always be equipped with a professional camera, specifically designed for low-light photography. This is a must-have tool when chasing Northern Lights! It helps anticipate the evolution of the sky and therefore allow us to make the best decisions! And of course, pictures are always nice to keep as a souvenir! All pictures taken during the tour will be sent to you by email in high quality!
OPTION FOR A WILDERNESS DINNER
A standard Finnish snack (Finnish sausages with hot drinks) is included in the program. However, you may be willing to live a more special experience and opt for a wilderness dinner served around the open fire. Your guide will then cook and serve some local traditional food directly around the fire in the middle of nowhere (and hopefully under the northern lights!). The dinner includes local hot drinks, starters, main salmon dish and homemade dessert.
A vegetarian option is also possible on request. Vegetarian options are for the whole group.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee to see the Northern Lights. No matter how hard we try, no matter of the decisions we take or the distances we drive, sometimes we also need a bit of luck. Northern Lights are an unpredictable phenomenon, and despite our long experience, there is unfortunately nothing we can do if Mother Nature decides not to offer us auroras… This is also the beauty about the Northern lights and we all have to accept it. But even if we are unlucky, the adventure will be worth it!
