Full description
Join our Northern Lights tour by boat to maximize your chances to see the magical double Aurora. This happens only in autumntime when the Northern Lights on the sky are reflected the lake's or river's surface. Then you can see the Aurora arches in the sky and on the water simultaneously. Our Resort is located between two lakes outside the Rovaniemi city area, away from artificial lights. This makes it the best possible place to hunt Northern Lights. As you hop on a boat from our own shore, you get to enjoy the peace of nature right away. However, while rowing across the lake Olkkajärvi in search of the Auroras, you also have a great chance to learn about the local way of life from our knowledgeable guide. We will land at a wilderness campfire spot during the trip to make a fire and grill sausages. This place is optimal for the Northern Lights, so even during the break, you can keep an eye on the sky for the lights.
