The search for the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is not easy but your professional guide will take you to the likeliest spot of that evening.
Certain conditions must be met such as darkness and avoiding the city lights which is why your guide will drive further north into the wilderness. Deeper into the arctic circle your guide will camp at one of our various lookout locations with the highest possibility of having a clear sky with a panoramic view. There, search in comfort as your guide prepares a campfire to cook a typical delicious Lappish BBQ of sausage with hot berry juice.
There can be no guarantees of seeing Aurora because she likes to play hide-and-seek, but your professional guide will use his/her in-depth knowledge and experience to calculate the factors for the best possibility of when and where you might find Aurora.
DLSR cameras are best for photography and the company may have a tripod available upon request.
