Choose from 3 or 5-day pass and check in with us every day to embark on a once in lifetime Aurora Borealis adventure. Come to the bright side, we have cookies!

Everyone will tell you that seeing the bright frolicking Northern Lights is a breathtaking experience. What they don't tell you that sometimes it takes more than one try, to see the lights. And, even then it doesn't all go without a hitch.

That's precisely why we provide a multi-day ticket, aiming to enhance your opportunities of witnessing the Aurora Borealis! Discover various terrains and relish the magnificence of Finnish surroundings. Depending on the Aurora's location, we'll encounter hills, woodlands, and grasslands, all while savoring the starry evenings beside the frozen lake.

All you have to do is complete your daily check-in (please review the additional information carefully!). It's essential to complete the check-in process to secure your seat in the minibus. Our minibus is both cozy and secure for navigating snowy and icy terrain. Once everyone is comfortably on board, your expert guide will lead you to the prime spot for witnessing the Northern Lights.

We'll explore different spots, unless we are certain that the Northern Lights will grace a particular location. In such cases, we'll head there, even if we've been before, to revel in the mesmerizing light display. Winter is the ideal season for embarking on an Aurora chase, as it requires dark nights and clear skies to witness this captivating spectacle.

Some believe that January - March is the best time to see the lights, but many find autumn the best. Season of the Northern Lights in Rovaniemi is October – April.

Northern Lights appear when tiny electronically charged particles from the Sun boost with oxygen and nitrogen atoms from the Earth's atmosphere. The lights appear green, blue, purple, and sometimes even crimson red with orangey shades of coral and pink. Our guide will help you to set up the camera and give you some good tips on how to capture the lights. But, before you hurry to snap as many photos as you can, take some time to let go and immerse yourself in the beauty of Lappish night sky.

The pass starts on the first day of your activation. Days are considered in a row. That is, if you start your Pass on Monday, then the last night of the Pass will be on Wednesday (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - 3 days in a row).


⚠️ Please note: you must check in each day to reserve your seat on that night's tour.

⚠️ Even on the first day that your Aurora pass is valid you still need to check in before 1 pm if you wish to join the tour that day. Simply send an email, WhatsApp or call (+358 4O 744 2567) before 1 pm to confirm that you want to reserve a seat.

⚠️ If you check-in\reserve a seat and do not show up on time for the departure, your Aurora Pass will expire.

⚠️ This pass cannot be transferred. Each pass is only valid for one customer to use for the whole booking period.

⚠️ Northern Lights are a natural occurrence and we are unable to guarantee activity, vibrancy or colour on the evening of the safari.

⚠️ The pass starts on the first day of your activation. Days are considered in a row. That is, if you start your Pass on Monday, then the last night of the Pass will be on Wednesday (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - 3 days in a row).

Frequently asked questions 

(See all questions and answers here)

- I have gluten / lactose intolerance / other diet. What should I do?


Please let us know your diet before or after booking your adventure. We will take into account your wishes and prepare the food suitable for you.

A booking is confirmed when you receive a confirmation email. If you think you have made a booking and have not received an email confirmation, please send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form, and we will figure this out together.


- How do i pay for a tour with Nordic Adventures?


You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!


- Can you see the northern lights in Rovaniemi?


If luck and weather are on your side, then you will be able to see the Aurora Borealis above the inviting streets of Rovaniemi. Whether you see the lights or not are dependant on two different factors. The first being the weather. If the sky is clear, no clouds, then you are halfway there to seeing the astonishing spectacle that is the Northern Lights (although light pollution can sometimes be a problem). Increased solar activity is the second half so, if these two merge together you may well be able to see the Northern Lights from Rovaniemi.


- What months can you see the northern lights?


The Northern Lights season is said to be from late August until mid-April. However, if you want to increase your chances of seeing them, it is best to wait until the clear winter months of mid-September until March.


- Will my guide take pictures for me?


Yes, if you have your camera with you, the guide can take a photo of you with the northern lights behind you! These can be single or group photos and free of charge.

Photos can also be taken on a mobile phone, but the quality of the photo will vary.


What are my options if my northern lights tour is cancelled?


When Northern Lights tours are cancelled it’s usually due to unfavourable weather conditions.

In that case, your options will be to:

1. Reschedule for another day.

2. Find another tour to do and use the deposit for it.

3. Get fully refunded.

Please send us an email ( to re-book your tour.


Will i definitely see northern lights on the tour?


The Northern Lights are natural phenomena and we unfortunately cannot promise you will see them. Their appearance depends upon atmospheric and weather conditions.


- Do i have to book in advance?


There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.


- How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Nordic Adventures?


This is a nice question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated in the voucher. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide. Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.


- How to dress right and feel comfortable in Winter?


1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.

2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.

3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.

4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up

Nordic Adventures is happy to tell you where you can rent costumes if there is such a need!


- What are the best camera setting for photographing the Northern Lights?


Unfortunately there isn’t just one simple answer to this question.​

There is not just one single setting for your camera that ensures great captures.  but if you have manual options, you are probably best served with experimenting with various combinations of ISO, aperture, and exposure settings. As a rule of thumb, ISO setting between 800 and 3200, aperture between f/2.8 and f/5.6, and shutter speed at between 15 seconds and 30 seconds have proven effective.​

​Different combinations may give very different results. Higher ISO setting will allow you to capture faster exposures, but the downside to this might be for example grainier images.

​If the shutter speed is above 15 seconds it will result in slight star movement.

​Wider angle lenses are usually more versatile in low light settings, but longer lenses give you different options for compositions. Make sure that you remove all lens filters, as they may distort images. You will probably get the best results with manual setting for infinite focal length​.

Be sure to remove all lens filters, as they may distort images. You will probably get the best results with manual setting for infinite focal length.


- Do you provide transportation to your adventures?


Most of our tours (please see specifications under each tour) include transfers from accommodation in Rovaniemi city area. It is included in the adventure price.

The pick up is usually 5-20 min before the start of the safari (time in your voucher). Transportation back is immediately after the end of the safari.

We try to provide exact pickup time one day before the start of the tour by email or text message/whats-app, which is why it is important that you provide your valid email and phone number when booking a tour.

We booked the 3 pass because we were not sure to be able to see any. The first day Alex the owner was opened to see what to do but it was a cloudy night so no chance to see them so we decided to forget about. The next night it was looking better but at the end the clouds didn't want to go away. Alex the guide - yes two different Alex - was all the time nice and so optimistic. He was tacking care of us and making the moment special. At the end we could'nt see any...buttttttt the last night and aslo the last try at -15ºC, we achieve yo see them!!! alex the guide - I don't know the surname- was all the time taking care of us because it was so cold outside....he added value to the moment with his charm. the experience great and if you go there in nov-desember be patiente because the cloudy nights make so difficult the chance to see them. thanks Alex2

Great way to make sure you catch the aurora!

March 7, 2020


we thought long and hard with which company to book and were glad to see Nordic Adventure was offering the 3 day pass. the price, relatively to Finland was appealing.
and we took the offer and got lucky seeing the aurora on our first 10 minutes!
the experience is fun and we felt good knowing we can come back and go and see the lights again which we did as we saw it on our 3rd night as well.
I have to mention the nice treatment we got from Alex the driver, and Alex the owner
which helped us by taking us from our apartment and made sure we feel comfortable in this tour.
i highly recommend using their service as the price is fair and the experience great.
Alex even helped us with the photos attached!

What an epic night watching Aurora Borealis dancing across the sky!

February 16, 2020


We booked the 3-day pass a month before our tour in Finland. I thought it was a bit pricey because we could end up not seeing the Northern lights. But the service alone is so worth it. The guide, Alex is so helpful, the experience of chasing and transferring from one spot to another was so exciting for us. They will make a bonfire and cook sausages and serve tea or hot chocolate while waiting.

We were able to see Northern lights for each night. The best one is the final night when it danced across the night sky! Everyone was shouting and cheering when it moved and change colors.

I highly recommend this tour!

ALEX, OUR guide was on the dot when he fetched us at our accommodation.

Lucky on the first night with beautiful shots. Alex showed us how to get beautiful pictures. The grilled sausages and the hot chocolate were also great.

Second night, we did the same tour, but had to wait until the clouds cleared.

It's really very cold waiting for the sky to clear.

Alex was right on time to fetch us at our AIRBNB. We were lucky to see the Northern Lights on the first night. Alex was great with helping in the photograph. The sausage and hot drinks also helped a lot
