Different options for aurora hunting tour

To get to the best wilderness spots, you have two different possibilities:

  • By minivan, with a lappish sauna tour

Aurora tour by snowmobile in Rovaniemi

If you choose the snowmobile hunting northern lights tour, you will experience the driving of snowmobiles through snowy forest as well as on frozen lakes. Since this northern light program is private, there will be nobody else with you but your guide. Therefore, you will truly have the opportunity to exchange with your guide to learn and understand this incredible phenomenon visible only in the polar regions.

As the aurora activity can’t be predicted more than a few days in advance, it will be possible for you to reschedule your excursions from one day to another to maximize your chance to see the Northern Lights. However, since forecasting natural phenomenon is not an exact science, seeing the Northern Lights can never be guaranteed.
