Full description
This 3-hour Northern Lights hunting tour by snowmobile will take you deep into the wonderful winter landscape of the Arctic Circle. Your guide will lead you on a unique snowmobile adventure through nature where only the moonlight, stars, and snowmobile light systems light the way.  

In the middle of the wilderness, you’ll stop to observe the sky. You’ll be surrounded by lakes and forests that rise like mysterious shadows towards the night sky. With the lights of the city nowhere to be found, you’ll be amazed at what you can see. The guide will prepare an open fire for you to warm up, where you can enjoy warm refreshments and grilled sausages. 

If you’re lucky and the sky is clear, you might see the flaming Northern Lights dancing in the sky in mysterious silence.

They wanted to combine riding a snowmobile with observing the northern lights. Half of the plan was realized. The first time I rode a snowmobile and at first I drove uncertainly. Then the fear disappeared and drove confidently. I liked riding a snowmobile, spending time near the fire with conversations, warm juice and cookies. Unfortunately the weather let it down was cloudy and snowy, and they did not see the radiance. One more day of vacation, and would see, since the next day the sky cleared up. The French conductor Coco was friendly, welcoming, caring and sociable.
