Full description

This 3-hour Northern Lights hunting tour by snowmobile takes you deep into the wonderful winter landscape of the Arctic Circle. Your guide will lead you on a unique adventure through nature where only the moonlight, stars, and snowmobile lights illuminate the way.  

In the middle of the wilderness, stop to observe the sky. Be surrounded by lakes and forests rising towards the night sky. Without city lights in sight, be amazed by the gorgeous view. The guide will prepare an open fire for warmth, where you can enjoy warm refreshments and grilled sausages. 

If you’re lucky and the sky is clear, see the flaming Northern Lights dancing in the sky in mysterious silence.

    Amazing andenture! Very friendly stuff! They helped us with everything! We were very lucky and we saw the northern lights! They sent us their photos also! A small misunderstanding with the food they provide...but OK! They could also buy a bit more, let's say... Overall, even without the aurora borrealis part...it worths the experience!

    Very good experience in snowmobile! The guide (English) was really very nice, he explained a lot to us about Lapland and Finland. To take charge from the start, be sure to be on time or nothing to say. The excursion is top notch, very beautiful landscapes, fire / very convivial meal; too bad we weren't able to see the Northern Lights but the weather was overcast. Small flat, we make the same trip by snowmobile to the outward and return. I recommend (watch the weather forecast carefully to maximize the chances of seeing the aurora). Thanks to the team!

    Unforgettable experience. They provided us with a shuttle service from our hotel, they accompanied us on the spot and after having equipped us with everything we need, but really everything, even heavier socks, our guide explained how the snowmobiles work. We drove through enchanting paths through the Lapp forest to then arrive at a hut where we were taught how to make a fire (complete with a woodcutter attached), roast sausages for dinner and marshmallows and hot juice. Marcus, our guide, also told us about the aurora. Magnificent adventure. Thanks to Marcus, very kind to us and to the children. A genuine, good and very friendly guy. He was really a great companion for this evening beyond any expectation!
