Full description

Chase the Northern Lights on a guided Arctic adventure into the Lapland wilderness on a snowmobile. Enjoy a Lapland-style barbecue snack and the unique snowy landscape at night, illuminated only by the aurora.

Go deeper into the brilliant winter landscape of the Arctic Circle in order to chase the auroras. Let your guide lead you on a different kind of snowmobile adventure in an almost completely dark setting, where only moonlight, stars, and snowmobile headlights will light your way.


Take in the forests and lakes rising like mysterious shadows towards the night sky in this snow-covered landscape. Warm up at an open fire and wait for the Northern Lights to dance for you in the night sky while you enjoy some warm refreshments and snacks. 


If you are lucky and the sky is clear, you might see the flaming Northern Lights dancing in the sky, surrounded by the penetrating silence of the arctic wilderness.

Very good experience, even though we did not have the weather to see the northern lights, we had a great time on the snowmobile ride and the barbecue in the arctic. Antonio a very friendly guy picked us up, he made our experience very pleasant, we totally recommend it. We will repeat for sure!!

Snowmobiling was fun, even though the tracks were all ruined so it was very bumpy. Unfortunately we couldnt see the lights, it was a cloudy night and the lights didnt want to show. The guides Alex and Markus were great fun and very knowledgable. We were a very large group of around 50 people

It was super cool, they give you everything you need so you don't get cold and enjoy the activity. Despite the fact that the weather was like this, before finishing the activity they gave us a small but magnificent northern lights. They make a journey to a kind of "refuge" where you will eat and drink. Perfect!
