Private Northern Lights Spotting by Sleigh Ride

Our Northern Lights Spotting by Sleigh Ride tour is a perfect option for families and everyone who wants to be on a move when trying to spot northern lights but does not want to drive a snowmobile by himself / herself.

In this tour, you will be sitting in a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile driving by our guide. We run this tour only as a private, so you do not need to be afraid to sit next to strangers. This tour has been designed to be extra safe and family-friendly.

We will pick you up at your hotel and drive away from light pollution for about 50 minutes. We will make a short break at Parpalandia to get our winter outfits and safety instructions. Then you can sit comfortably in the sleigh, enjoy the ride and take pictures.

During the tour, we will stop to make fire and grill sausages and talk about northern lights.
