Ride through the wilderness and discover the phenomena of the northern sky at our Northern Lights base
Experience the Arctic night by driving through the snow-covered forest and on the frozen river to the Aurora Borealis camp. At the resort, you will find a theatre inside a snow igloo, where a film about the myths and facts of this natural phenomenon is presented. You'll also have time to roam around the resort, take a brisk sleigh ride, or can just lay back by an open fire admiring the northern sky. With a little luck, the sky is clear and the Northern Lights may show up And don’t forget to fry and enjoy the traditional reindeer sausages and marshmallows prepared by the open fire before your return back to the city.
