Snowmobile Safari to Search for the Northern Lights
This evening departure of a snowmobile safari will be a special experience to discover the magic of snowy forests in the night. Given extra light by the white snow reflection or the stars and the moon, we follow the snowmobile trails away from city lights and look for a spot to admire the sky.
The guide will light up a campfire and we will enjoy a picnic while waiting for the northern lights to appear. Everyone can grill traditional Finnish “makkara” sausages on the fire and enjoy Lappish berry juice to keep you warm. For taking proper photos in darkness, you can bring along a tripod for your camera.
Duration of the program is 3 hours, including preparations. The riding time on snowmobiles is approximately 1 hour
and 30 – 40 minutes. The average speed during our short tours is limited due to the safety and traffic regulations.
Two adults ride on one snowmobile, single riding supplement for an extra charge.
The tour is suitable for families with children; children are traveling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. We recommend having an early dinner in the hotel before the departure.
Please note: the northern lights are a natural occurrence and we are unable to guarantee activity, vibrancy or colour on the evening of the tour. The tour date can be moved free of charge once (depending on availability, excl. group reservations), please contact email@example.com by 16.00 on the original date..
