  • Gather around a blazing bonfire for snacks and hot drinks in the beautiful wilderness

Full description

We cross the beautiful snowy landscape to reach a traditional, Lappish “kota”; a hut deep in the wilderness. Gather around the blazing bonfire, to enjoy light snacks and hot drinks. The guide will help you with camera settings to best capture the Northern Lights. This excursion is completely focused on the Northern Lights, but you also get to experience the beauty of the pure, snowy forest, darkness, and quietness. As the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, nobody can give a 100% guarantee to see them, but this trip presents an excellent chance.

    Very nice experience, unfortunately we have not seen the aurora but nobody can know that. The only thing I think about is that often in March the aurora comes out late, like around 11pm, which is usually the time when tours are coming to an end. I think it would be better to organize myself later.

    First we were picked up by a train. You are in it for 20 minutes and arrive at the tipi. We got biscuits and warm berry juice and listened to stories from the guide. It is then "improvise". We had a 0% chance of seeing the Northern Lights, because it was cloudy and started snowing hard. That's a shame and I also understand that it's a natural phenomenon. Then 20 minutes back by train. In this case I think €98,- pp is a lot of money for what you get. Keep a close eye on when there is a high chance of the Northern Lights with apps and the weather forecast. If it is there, then it seems like a nice excursion in total.
