About:

 

“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 drive through the silent village of Ivalo, on the winding road toward the tiny village Nellim, situated near the slumbering border of our enormous neighbour Russia.
We continue for a kilometre to the Paatsjoki River bridge. We will make a fire under the open sky and wait for the Northern Lights to flare up. And when they do, the sight is incomparable: the river flowing freely and rapidly towards Russia, reflecting the silhouette of the forest and the red and green flames of the Northern Lights covering the skies. An experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

Inclusions:

- Guiding in English
- Warm Berry Juice, Cookies and Marshmallows

Why visit in the Spring?
In Finnish, we call the Lappish Spring ‘Kevättalvi’. There’s a beautiful balance between all the Winter perks, milder temperatures and more hours of daylight. Ideal for those looking to get the most out of the snow!
Why visit in the Summer?
Escape the heatwaves of regions closer to the equator, with temperatures rarely exceeding 20°C. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful and pristine nature of Lapland!
Why visit in the Autumn?
Temperatures are mild, there’s less crowd and nights are very dark which allows for amazing Northern Lights viewings. Plus: Enjoy Aurora Square! You’ll be able to see breathtaking Northern Lights reflections on unfrozen rivers and lakes.
Why visit in the Winter?
Sub-zero temperatures ensure there’s plenty of snow and outdoor fun for the whole family! The sun is only up for a few hours, making the Winter a great time to view Northern Lights. Cold nights tend to have a clear sky, with green, purple and red shades of the Aurora Borealis!
