Northern Lights – Experience the Magic in a Small Group

In our small group Northern Lights tour, we will take you to a great location to enjoy the magic of this natural phenomenon. Seeing northern lights, known also as Aurora Borealis, is an unforgettable experience and we will do our best to show the northern lights to you.

Our experienced guide will pick you up and then we will start driving from the city. The journey is quite long, about 1 hour, but that is because we want to take you to a light pollution-free location. Having no or little light pollution is important for northern lights observation. If we are lucky, we will be able to see the northern lights already on the way. In such case, we will stop along the way.

Once we will reach our northern lights location, the guide will tell you about the northern lights, how are they formed, why do they have different colours as well as will answer any of your questions.

While you are enjoying auroras dancing in the sky, the guide will prepare a fire and a barbecue for you. We will have some traditional Finnish snacks, such as sausages, cookies, and hot juice.

After the tour, your guide will drive you back to your accommodation.

This tour has a small group guarantee. There will be a maximum of 16 participants. You can enjoy your experience without the feeling of mass tourism.
