Drive away from the city to the place with the highest chance of seeing the Northern Lights. Find a warm spot to set up the fire and sit and wait for the show.

Usually, you can view the Aurora in the middle of a huge frozen lake or river.  All of the pictures of the Northern Lights on the website were taken during tours, some by clients and some by guides. Some were even taken on a mobile phone. Cameras often capture stronger images than what you can see with the naked eye. However, when the Aurora really starts to dance, no cameras are needed.

We landed in Rovaniemi, and after check in headed straight for this sauna experience. We got a private cabin with our family, pre-heated, where we could start 1h30 - 1h45. Plently of time to relax. For our kids it was a first sauna experience, and for us a first to roll in the snow - and for the ones who dare take a dip in the froozen lake. The cabine is 35-40min drive from the city, on a desolated lake. If the weather allows, and if you know what you are looking for, there should be a good chance to spot northern lights. We were not lucky. After the sauna, we were served berry juice, cookies and sausages. Contrary to other activities of the same agency, these sausages where not tasty at all

They picked us up and dropped us off and provided good thermal clothes and shoes. The hike was a truly wonderful and magical experience. Our guide Kristiina was amazing and it was clear that she loves what she does as a guide. The sights are one-of-a-kind and being a small group meant plenty of photo opportunities :) We saw wild reindeer and had a cozy bbq at the end with hot berry juice by an open fire. Truly fantastic!

The snow hotel is beautiful. The tour itself is short, but you get 1 hour of free time to walk around in the hotel by yourself, so plenty of time to take pictures in every room. The ice bar is also great, where you can smash your glass against the wall. The diner was served quickly, so we did not get cold (inside is -5C) and the food was great!

Finnish sauna, snow sauna and jacuzzi are amazing. Very unique experiences! Although the kotahovi restaurant is just average especially the reindeer meat but the whole experience was great! Would definitely go back again.

It was simply amazing. The owner of the company took us on the snowmobile and let us even try his moto! The dogs were also loving!!! I would recommend this activity to everyone.
