Our week long Northern Lights trip is ideal for true Aurora hunters. You will be located in Karesuando a remote village 160 miles north of the Arctic Circle, far away from the commercialism of mass-market winter resorts. Our guides will lead you to night time vantage points, offering optimum chances for witnessing the fabled Northern Lights. You will also have the opportunity to mush your own team of huskies and visit the nearby village of Hetta, home to the Sami museum which provides a fascinating insight into Sami culture.
Your Aurora Hunter adventure starts with your flight into Enontekiö, Finland. Once you have arrived, relax in comfort as you make the 1 hour transfer to Karesuando, enjoying the magnificent views of fells and frozen lakes as you go. Now, on arriving at your hotel the real aim of your trip begins – to catch the elusive Aurora Borealis!
During your stay you will have the chance to go in search of the lights in many ways. Drive out into the night on your own snowmobile, crossing a frozen lake to reach areas of little light pollution. Enjoy a guided forest trek to a wilderness viewpoint, where you can hope to see the Northern Lights dance above the village. You can even relax in your hotel until they decide to appear, taking just a few steps outside to enjoy the view.
Your stay includes the following excursions, giving you the opportunity to enjoy all that the land of the Northern Lights has to offer. If you wish for even more from your time north of the circle, we can even organise an overnight stay in Tromso, the capital of the Arctic or perhaps a night under the stars in your very own igloo. See the optional excursions page for more information.
