Northern Lights by the Lake

What You'll Do

Enjoy an unforgettable evening around the roaring fire on the water's edge and marvel at the spectacular dance of the northern lights by the lake - only at our Aurora Camp.

The Northern Lights by the lake tour begins with a bus journey to the camp. On the way, we will stop to take photos at the rugged Lake Inari, a stunning expanse of ice dotted with pine-covered islands, which was believed to be the home of Ukko, the Overgod, by the ancient Laplanders.

From there, we continue on to the idyllic Aurora Camp on the shore of the lake.

In the camp, we will warm up in a cozy hut by the fire, enjoy a warming drink and prepare a traditional Lappish midnight snack whilst waiting for the northern lights to appear on the horizon.

Grab a reindeer hide, lie down in the snow, and enjoy an unforgettable experience under the northern lights. If the evening is completely calm, you may even hear the faint whispers the northern lights create as they ripple through the cold, pure air…

“Do not raise your voice as the Northern Lights blaze, for this brings bad luck.”

Your Local Host:


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.
