Full description

Search for the Northern Lights with an expert guide who will find the best spot for viewing opportunities on the night of your outing. Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies as you sit around a bonfire and listen to fascinating tales from your guide.

Get picked up at the meeting point, and ride out away from the pollution of the city lights and into the darkness of the fjords, forests and mountains.

Your guide will choose the best spot for that night and take you there, within an area of 300 km. While waiting to see if the lights appear, enjoy hot chocolate with cookies for a warm and sweet start.

Then, weather permitting, sit by a bonfire and enjoy homemade sandwiches and roast marshmallows. Your guide will share with you the facts, stories, traditions, beliefs, and superstitions about the Northern lights. When the Aurora Borealis do appear, your guide will take professional pictures and share them with you for free. They will also help you to get the best out of your cameras and even mobile phones.

This was a great trip. We knowingly booked on one of the last days we of the season but our guide worked hard to find us the best possible spot with the best chances of seeing the lights. We were the only group to see a small glimmer of light. The bonfire and snacks made the wait easier.

The weather that day was not very good, and I was already mentally prepared for not seeing the aurora. But our guide was very powerful and very hard. After driving for a long time, we took us to Finland, and we saw it! He is really very professional! I am so happy.

We had very good experience. Honestly We did expect we will see northern light because it was raining all day. But guides found the area without less cloud and took pictures of us, we had hog dog, chocolate and cookies. Guides made campfire as well . Will receive! Very my professional on photos and told us the story about Aurora.
