Overview
What to Expect
On this tour we learn to drive snowmobiles and drive in the dark wilderness finally reaching a tepee / hut. We make a fire and enjoy warm beverages and barbeque snacks while watching the sky. The guide explains all about Northern Lights and the old mythology. The appearance of the lights is not guaranteed but they are visible in about 90 % of the clear sky evenings. Also the arctic starry sky is very beautiful. Spot the Big Bear and Polar Star, Northern Lights often appear just under the Polar Star. Listen to the stories about local life and nature by living fire.

Our Northern Lights trip has got excellent feedbacks already for years. This is because our Northern Lights spotting place is the best possible place where are no other lights at all, northern sky is fully open and thanks of the local micro climate the weather is often clear even if it is cloudy or foggy elsewhere. By our long experience the right hours to be out there is 11-12 PM. Anyway you need some luck to see the lights and it is unpredictable even during the trip! Great surprises happen!

Why to book our organized trip? During this tour the northern horizon is all visible and absolutely dark that is very important in Aurora hunting. This trip offers a great chance for taking pictures of Northern lights in the middle of beautiful arctic nature. Please also check the tour reviews on our TripAdvisor pages and join us – the Aurora experts!

I did the Tours with the Snowmobile,twice also to see the Auroras. Guide Giacomo is so friendly, knows his way around, he looks very at your safety and its fun. He also can teach you a lot, if you want. A good Guy to get to know the natural origin of the area. You don't realize
