LAPLAND NORTHERN LIGHTS
Private Northern Lights and Photography tour
Lapland is the home of Northern Lights holidays and we would like to invite you to
a beautiful and exciting adventure under the stars!
The Aurora Borealis, also called the Northern Lights is a natural light phenomenon in the Earth’s atmosphere. It is a truly magical experience to see the lights dancing in the sky, but it requires expertise and knowledge of the area to find the best locations to view them. This is why Northern Lights hunting with a professional guide gives you the best chance to witness this stunning natural light show.
On this private tour we will drive away from the city's light pollution and deeper into the Aurora zone. The timing and route will be decided separately for each trip based on real time weather conditions. Your local Rovaniemi Northern Lights guide will explain to you in detail how the Northern Lights are formed and share some Lappish folklore. Your guide will also bring his own professional photography gear and teach you how to photograph the Aurora Borealis and the night sky with your own camera as well.
It isn’t always quite the traditional walk in the park, as we might have to drive long distances in search of the right conditions to see the Lapland Northern Lights. But it’s definitely worth it!
Your group size can be up to 8 persons. Bigger groups can be discussed separately.
We also provide tours for solo travelers.
In a small private group, we have all the flexibility to stop and go as much as we want to give us a higher chance of catching the lights!
The duration of the program is around 4 hours, depending on the changing weather conditions and the success of our hunt.
The tour is not physically difficult and suits people of all ages. But we recommend children under 10-years-old not to participate due to the late hours and cold conditions of the tour.
Hot drinks and small snacks will be served during the trip,
but you shouldn’t go out at night on an empty stomach.
What to bring?
Layered winter clothing, winter hat, gloves and boots.
Camera & tripod (if you have).
