Northern lights

Experience the magic of Lapland and photograph the amazing northern lights! Going hunting for aurora with our professional guides, you have the best possible chance to witness the northern lights. The focus of our expedition is the Rovaniemi area, traveling around happens by minivan. We start with a team meeting in which you will get a short briefing about current weather conditions, aurora forecasts and our destination of the day. Northern lights are always unpredictable and there is no guarantee that we will see them every night. However, we give you the best possible chance to experience and photograph these mystical wonders of the Arctic area. During the night, we normally go from two to three different locations which are always chosen according to local weather conditions and photographic opportunities, we can travel up to 100 km away if needed. Altogether we have over 50 locations from which we can choose the best ones each night.

After reaching our destination, we leave the minivan and continue on foot to reach the perfect spots in the middle of the nature. There our guide, a professional photographer, helps you prepare your cameras for the show of a lifetime!

As the tour is photography based and quite demanding, the activity has a minimum age of 10 years.

Please note: we highly recommend that you bring your own DSLR camera with you as we cannot guarantee that you are able to take night photos with compact or phone cameras.
