Experience Itinerary

Welcome to Aurora Country

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

Here, you’ll be shown to your private suite. This cosy 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 on snowshoes, settle by a crackling campfire, and wait for the show to begin.

This evening also includes a photography workshop, so that you can get the most spectacular pictures possible of this green and red ribbons of light that illuminate the dark night sky. You can also head out for an Aurora Expedition on Snowshoes.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Immerse Yourself in Nature

Start your day with a hearty breakfast, and prepare yourself for a day of activities that will allow you to truly get in touch with nature and experience true wilderness.

You’ll have free access to the site’s sleds, snowshoes, skis and other equipment for the entire experience, so that you’re free to explore the trails and paths that snake through this untouched, pristine part of the world and discover dramatic fells, hidden clearings and frozen lakes.

After lunch, it’s time for a husky safari. These beautiful, energetic dogs will take you on a tour of the incredible landscape, for around 10 km, and you’ll get to spend time interacting with these affectionate animals.

NOTE between 1 September and 13 November the husky sled ride will be shorter as the weather is too warm for the dogs to run for long distances.

Satisfyingly wearied and chilled from a day in the open, you’ll head for another warming, hearty dinner, warm your bones by an open fire, and spend the evening at your leisure, waiting for the spectacular Borealis to burn across the clear night sky.

In the evening, head out on a heated sleigh to the darkest corners of Lapland for your best chance of catching a glimpse of the northern lights.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Aurora Hunting

Start your adventure by heading out into the wilderness by snowmobile. A practice used by the natives for centuries, this is a chance for you to get a glimpse at local life in Lapland.

NOTE: 1st September – 13 November  this activity will be a guided electric fat bike safari in the wonderful lappish countryside.

In the evening, jump back out into the wild for an aurora camp by the lake, where a beautiful warm tent, along with a roaring fire, have been set up as you watch the aurora borealis.

Photography Workshop and Day To Explore

This morning you will join the photography workshop, where you will learn invaluable tricks and techniques to accurately represent the magic of the Northern Lights and the night sky in your photographs.

Following the workshop you are totally free to explore the site and surrounding wilderness, relax at the nearby spa, or simply lie in gazing at the snow-covered pine trees around you.

You could take a look at our husky rides, getting up close and personal to these beautiful dogs and heading out into the untouched landscape via sled, or grab your snowshoes for another adventure into the forest.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Departure Day

Wake up on your final morning here, hopefully blown away by the natural spectacle you witnessed last night.

Feeling rejuvenated and refreshed by the pure air, the time spent in nature and the extreme comfort you’ve enjoyed, head for a final breakfast.

Your stay sadly comes to an end at this point, and we’ll transfer you straight back to Rovaniemi airport.
