Nothern Lights by the Border

Summary

Enjoy an unforgettable experience as you witness the Northern Lights in a most unique fashion; reflected upon the beautiful Paatsjoki River as they dance and dart across the sky.

“It is hard to imagine a more spectacular sight than the Northern Lights – except to see the Northern Lights reflected on the surface of a flowing river”

Take a seat on the bus and enjoy the nocturnal landscape of Lapland. We will drive through the silent village of Ivalo and the tiny Nellim, on the winding road toward the slumbering border of our enormous neighbour, Russia.

From the border, we continue on for a kilometer to the Paatsjoki River bridge. Here, we will build a campfire under the open sky, relax in its warmth and wait for the northern lights to flare up.

When they do, the sight is incomparable: the river flowing freely and rapidly towards Russia, mirroring and enhancing the red and green flames of the northern lights flowing through the perfectly black skies, and over the snow-covered trees.

This is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
