Are we sure to see the auroras when booking a northern light hunt ?

Although everyone hopes to be able to observe the Northern Lights, it is however impossible to guarantee anyone that they will be able to observe this phenomenon during their stay in Lapland.

Important note: we are the only agency in Rovaniemi to offer several optional slots during your stay, to maximize your chances for Northern Lights hunting. We will choose the best night of these options offered to you, in terms of weather conditions, in order to optimize your chances of seeing the Northern Lights. If, unfortunately, the sky is cloudy each evening, the excursion will take place on the last option date.


Since solar activity (solar flares) does not depend on the season, the Northern Lights occur year-round. However, they are obviously more visible at night than during the daytime. For this reason, the first northern lights are generally visible in Rovaniemi from September when the last aurora of the season will be visible around mid-April. We recommend two periods to maximize your chance of observing the Northern Lights: Around September/october and from January till end of March.
