Are you planning a trip to the Arctic in search of Northern Lights? If you wish to maximize your chances to view this mesmerizing natural phenomenon, also known as Aurora Borealis, you should consider spending a few days in Kilpisjärvi.
Statistically the village of Kilpisjärvi is a great choice – the Northern Lights appear here more frequently than anywhere else in Lapland. While staying in the village you may catch sight of Aurora Borealis without going far from your accommodations – a short walk takes you away from any light pollution. But if you want to venture out further and experience the Arctic night in the nature, join our evening tour to the wilderness.
The tour starts with a snowmobile passenger sled transfer from the village center. You’ll be seated comfortably on cushions, wrapped in blankets, while your guide pilots the machine towards the darkness. At the destination, which is a basic wilderness camp, you spend the evening marveling at the sights and sounds of the Arctic nighttime nature and anticipating ”Lady Aurora’s” mood. Will she dance tonight?
Hot beverages and a tasty snack will be served by your guide during the course of the evening.
