Tour Description

Do you know what makes a place become an ideal spot for Northern Lights spectating which is the top 1 safaris activity in Rovaniemi? Somewhere high and away from light pollution. Then what is the best time to see Northern Lights? It would definitely a day with clear sky, no coverage of cloud, and the Northern Light forecast gives a positive sign. If the weather is all good like that, you would probably have a high chance to spot the Polar Lights. You can also check the KP index yourself by downloading an “Aurora Borealis Forecast & Alert” application on your phone. However, don’t worry, we will give you advice for the most suitable time.

The important element about the Northern Light tour is THE LOCATION. You need to find someplace darkness in the forest and away from the city centre to avoid light pollutions as mentioned. The perfect Northern Light areas are places located in the North such as Rovaniemi; Ivalo, Inari ( Finland);Tromso (Norway); Arijeplog (Sweden). We offer you one of the best LOCATION where is 30 km away to the North from Rovaniemi. In addition, we have a very special cottage (Finnish – Kota) in the middle of the forest for you to stay warm inside, especially for small children during 3.5 hours hunting Northern Lights and one more Lappish cottage (outside) if you want to try Lappish experience. Let’s book the tour now and get start!

Half an hour driving far from Rovaniemi centre, you will get to the perfect spot for Northern Lights chasing. Our tour guide will drive you up north, to reach closer to Aurora Borealis area, which has the highest possible for the adventurers to catch the sight. Come with us and you can stand on a high Lappish hill (sorry we don’t have the mountain in Finland), feeling like you’re floating between the earth surface and the sky, listening to the breezing sound of the trees, staring at the mysterious pitch dark of Polar Night (Kaamos), you would have the feeling of casting in a Northern Lights movie. On the beautiful snowy hill, we provide a warm and cosy traditional Lappish cottage with a campfire where you can recharge your energy with authentic Lappish evening snack. In this cultural decorated Kota, where you can spend the moment together having Finnish evening snack with our Karelian pie with Reindeer paste, Grilling sausages, try the 3 most typical Finnish bread, hot drinks are also available. By the time gathering by the warm fire, you will also hear about Lappish cultures and stories from our skilful tour guides If you have any wondering or questions about Lapland, Lappish culture or even mysteries creatures in the area, do not hesitate to ask us!
