Join our legendary Northern Lights trip to maximize your chances to see this great natural arctic phenomenon and learn to make pictures of Auroras. On this small group tour we drive to the best direction each evening for hunting and photographing northern lights.
The guide shares information about Northern Lights and the old mythology around them. The arctic starry sky is very beautiful. Spot the Big Bear and Polar Star, Northern Lights often appear just under the Polar Star.
Why book our organized trip?
It is all about knowing the best place for following the lights. Many people believe that a glass igloo helps you seeing the Northern Lights. It is a special experience indeed to sleep in one but actually it is not the best chance to see northern lights. The best chances and places are on mountains and hills having great view to north and what is really important for photographing – far away from all artificial lights.
On this trip the weather conditions are maximised as we follow weather forecasts and drive to the best possible direction.

Rovaniemi is one of the best places in the world for spotting the Northern Lights. It is located at the Arctic Circle where in general the chances to see the Northern Lights are very high. Also, the climate in Rovaniemi area is continental that means clear sky for most of the evenings in the wintertime at least on the mountains around the town.
But it is impossible to predict the Northern Lights and the weather reliably. Outside of the town on little mountains where we go the weather is very often clear and better than predicted. Please remark that you don’t need more than 5 minutes clear sky to see the lights. On the mountains it happens very often even on cloudy nights.
It happened already several times that some people didn’t book the tour because they thought it is cloudy or not good for the lights. And finally, that evening was one of the best Northern Lights evenings with the most spectacular lights. What a pity if you were already in town and didn’t join our trip! We have decided that we always go if somebody books the trip, because it is always possible that we miss the lights if we do not go. And if you are not lucky you have a chance to book second tour by lower price!
We will take pictures on the tour and send them to you afterwards if we have your contact details and the pictures are good. We will also advice you in photographing and rent tripods on our tour! Welcome!
