ABOUT THIS TOUR

This 3-hour tour includes transportation, guidance, storytelling and hot sausages by the campfire. Learn about Nordic myths and see the colorful lights fire up the sky.

The best time of the year to see the Northern Lights in Finland is between September and April. In Lapland, you can see the lights for 200 nights a year. Contrary to popular belief lights appear in autumn and spring, even summer too, but you can't see them unless the sky is pitch black. That's why we take you on away from the city lights to see the majestic Aurora light show.

Aurora hunt lasts for 3 hours. We'll pick you up from your hotel in Rovaniemi and take you to our secluded country location where we'll sit by an open fire and wait for the lights. Snacks and drinks are included, so help yourself to sausages cooked on the open fire and recuperate with some hot tea. In a cozy atmosphere by an open fire, you will learn more about the Northern Lights, why they appear and learn about ancient Aurora legends.

The most popular myth in Finland involves the story about a fast Firefox that ran so quickly its tail sent sparks into the sky creating the Northern Lights. Others say that the lights appear in the sky whenever the whales splash water. Find out more about these Nordic myths as you wait for the lights to start swirling in the sky.

Please note that Aurora sights are not guaranteed. Even when the solar activity is right and the timing is perfect, we still need to be lucky to see the lights.

FAQ

(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.

- When is a booking for a tour with Nordic Adventures confirmed?

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 (info@nordicadventures.fi) 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.

- How do I book a tour with Nordic Adventures and what information do you need from me?

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.

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

Visiting Northern Lights

Alex was prompt while he picked us from the hotel; though the tour was only for 3 hours and forecast for northern lights was on low level, he made all his efforts to at least have a glance of northern light though our camera.
Very passionate, keep up the good work.

Sehr schöner Ausflug

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Abend, auch wenn wir mit den Nordlichtern kein Glück hatten. Es gab warme Getränke für alle und auch Würstchen und Marshmellos zum grillen über dem Feuer. Alex war sehr nett und hat auch bei der Kameraeinstellung geholfen. Wir würden jederzeit wieder eine Tour mit Alex machen.

Extremamente atencioso

Somente pontos positivos: a ideia de termos dias livres para ir foi ótima, vimos apenas na 3a noite. O moço que nos levou, aleks, foi sensacional com minha filha de 3 anos e parecia um verdadeiro caçador de Aurora!!!!Irretocável!
