Full description

Seeing the aurora borealis (northern lights) dancing above is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. On this guided group trip, learn how to capture this rare experience with the help of a professional camera and photographer. After pickup in Rovaniemi, drive outside of the city to reach the location to observe the northern lights. The viewing location is a place without light pollution, so you’ll have the best conditions to see the northern lights. If you’re lucky, you’ll already be able to spot them on the way. Upon arrival at the viewing spot, an experienced guide will tell you about the northern lights, including how they are formed and why they have different colors. They will also gladly answer any of your questions. A professional camera will be used to capture the northern lights and take photos of you with the lights in the background. The photos will be sent to you the day after the tour so you can always remember your trip to Lapland. If you have your own camera, you can ask the photographer to explain to you how to photograph the lights and what settings are the best. As you are watching the northern lights shining in the sky, your guide will be preparing a fire and barbecue. Enjoy traditional Finnish snacks, such as sausages, cookies, and hot juice. After the trip, your guide will drive you back to your accommodation in Rovaniemi.
