What You'll Do

Get lost on a one-of-a-kind, 5-night getaway to the stunning corner of the winter wonderland that is Lapland, and experience an absolutely unforgettable journey for all the family.

You and your family will be picked up from Ivalo airport, and driven straight to your incredible accommodation for the five days, our Aurora Cabins; a 29 square meter elegant and cosy cabin has enough room for spending an evening together under the glass roof providing an amazing view of the star-filled sky and the Northern Lights.

Authentic, warming breakfast, lunch and dinners will be provided in a cosy local restaurant, Kota, where you can sit at the window and drink in the picturesque views over the reindeer paddock.

During your stay, you have the opportunity to enjoy some unforgettable experiences in awe-inspiring landscapes, including snowmobile safaris, blissful relaxation at Saariselkä Spa and reindeer rides to meet Santa, deep in the Finnish wilderness. All activities are expertly organised, so that you can simply enjoy the expeditions and relax as we take care of the details.

At the Northern Lights Village, where your Aurora Cabin is situated, we specialise in hunting and photographing the Northern Lights. On all Aurora Expeditions you are guided by a professional photographer, who will help you take the best possible photos of this incredible natural phenomenon.

Of course, searching for the northern lights is about being in the right place at the right time. Fortunately, you and your family will be in exactly the right place, at the right time of year, accompanied by the very best northern lights hunters in the world, maximising your chances of ticking off the ultimate bucket list moment.

Your Local Host:

Markku

I was born and raised in Finland and for the last twenty years now I've been offering authentic, immersive experiences in the region of Lapland. Originally, I worked with my sister as operations manager for her tour company. So, finding,  sourcing and planning trips and excursions and this equipped me with a vast knowledge of the area and the tours that were being offered.

Experience Itinerary

Welcome to Aurora Country

Your Northern Lights adventure begins when we pick you up directly from Ivalo Airport and transfer you into the Lappish wilderness, through pristine snow encrusted pine forest and snowy fells until we reach the Northern Lights Village.

Here, you’ll be shown to your private cabin. This stylish, elegant space will provide you with your base for the experience, and offers beautifully cosy warmth against the Arctic weather outside.

And of course, the glass roof means that you’ll have unobstructed views of the spectacular night sky and the jaw-dropping Northern Lights, all from the comfort of your bed.

After a hearty dinner, it’s time for your first expedition to spot the Northern Lights. Led by locals who are experts in spotting the natural phenomenon, you’ll venture into the wilderness by heighted sleigh and take in the night skies in comfort.

 

Husky Rides

After another hearty breakfast, set out on a husky ride, swishing through the silent, snow-covered forest on your own private sleigh.

Meet these beautiful, energetic dogs that will take you exploring through the glistening Lapland wilderness, on a safari you are sure never to forget.

After dinner, you’ll head out on another expedition, this time on a heated sleigh, to see if you can catch another glimpse of the stunnin

Accommodation:

Reindeer Express and cross country skiing lesson

Sit down into the sleigh and signal the reindeer – and hold on! You’ll get to see how Laplanders used to move around before snowmobiles arrived in the northern wilderness. Driving a reindeer sleigh through the wintry forest is an experience to remember!

Next you get to try out cross country skiing – another traditional way to get around through the winter carpets – however you’re doing the rewarding work.

Farewell

We’ll transfer you back to the airport, and look forward to maybe seeing you again!

Location Information
