Full description
Marvel at the beauty of the Lapland night as you ride your snowmobile under dark, starry skies. You’ll head into the mysterious snowy forest and away from the city lights in pursuit of the magical aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights. Maneuver your snowmobile through the forests of Lapland outside Rovaniemi city on a 2-hour ride, as you learn the fundamentals of handling this machine. The northern lights are a natural wonder and not fully predictable, so you’ll need to be in the right place at the right time to see the spectacular display in the northern sky! Enjoy a stop along the way to build a fire and grill some delicious sausages. The duration of the program is 3 hours, including preparations. The riding time on snowmobiles is approximately 1 hour and 30-40 minutes.

    The guides were extremely helpful (neither of us had stepped foot on a Snowmobile). We felt safe and well looked after throughout the trip. We were blessed enough to see the Northern Lights at the very end. The juice, sausage, and campfire at the midway point hit the spot. While they provided coveralls/boots/etc, we'd recommend using hand warmers and foot warmers especially for the passenger. As a driver, the shield glass blocks the wind from you fingers, but as a passenger, your extremities are much more exposed. Hope y'all have an excellent experience too!

    Excellent guides, felt safe and well looked after throughout the trip! We didn’t see the northern lights but the stars wrrw spell binding all the same. Would recommend taking more than 4 layers of clothes - hand warmers and fopt warmers that you can heat up would be ideal.

    Amazing trip! Got to see an amazing light show !! So lucky! Guides were amazing. Snow mobiles were fun. Could have been a little faster. Really nice food by camp fire. Make sure you rig up as it gets cold!!! Even with 4 layers on!!! If you are going on this tour, make sure you are at pick up point 5 mins before at least to save everyone from waiting for you.... as we had to for many others... just common courtesy... Highly recommended! Bus driver fantastic too!! Hope you all get to see the light show like we were lucky enough to!
