Santa's Village and Northern Lights Wilderness Tour
Today you can stroll over to Santa’s Village, see the elves at work and soak up the Christmas atmosphere before you set off on your wonderful Northern lights wilderness tour.
You’ll join a small group and a professional guide to search through the wilderness on your evening hunt for the Aurora Borealis, and have the opportunity to drive through the Lapland wilderness and explore the arctic nature. During stops you may take a short walk through the very old, white and snowy forest or to the top of fells, you may cross a wooden bridge over powerful rapids, or enjoy the silence on a lake beach and tranquility of a landscape of ice and snow… Hopefully, with Auroras dancing over your heads!
This experience is almost always done in the complete dark and you see the scenery in a completely new and beautiful way. You will get the opportunity to build a fire, outdoors, next to a log hut or in a teepee. Your guide will teach you how to light a fire in the traditional way, using silver birch bark and flint. While waiting for the first greenish arches to appear above your head, as the kettle starts to boil, your guide will share with you their knowledge and passion about the forest and its wildlife, and the northern lights. You will also have a hot beverage to warm you up, grill your own sausages over the open fire and enjoy your it with the famous Finnish mustard.
We can’t guarantee that you will see them due to weather conditions, but your local guide is expert at searching for the best possible place to see the, and if you don’t see them, you can try again the next evening! You’ll have chance to stop in the forest, make a fire and warm up with hot drinks and some local snacks whilst you wait and gaze at the inky black sky in the beautiful silence.
