Escape the city lights and spend a quiet evening on the private lake. We'll go Northern Lights hunting and warm up in a cozy Finnish tipi tent.

If you want to go Northern Lights hunting but don't want to get round up with dozens of tourist, our private lake experience is a perfect choice for you. We specialize in small tours only. That way everyone will have our full attention and a chance to get a personalized experience.

We’ll pick you up from your hotel with our comfortable minibus. To escape the city buzz and experience the true beauty of Finland, we’ll drive to a cozy tipi at our private lake in the middle of nowhere. We want to show you the thrill of Northern Lights hunting. Locals here are used to Aurora Borealis, but they never take it for granted. In order to see the lights dance in the sky, you need to have good timing and just be lucky enough. Nature is unpredictable, but it's the thrill of a chase that we go for. In addition, we wanted to immerse you in a traditional Lappish experience and take you on a private lake in our hut, to enjoy juicy sausages and hot drinks.

If the weather is nice, the sky is clear, and the solar activity was in favor of Aurora Borealis we will see the flickering green lights turn in shades of blue and violet. Please note that we can't predict the future, the weather, and whether or not you'll like this tour. However, we can tell you for sure that every time we organize this tour we feel lucky to live in such beautiful place.

We will drop you off at your hotel or place of residence at the end of the Aurora tour.

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.


- 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.


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.


- 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!


- 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.

Northern lights at private lake

February 25, 2019


I went off of everyone else’s reviews and chose Nordic adventures because I’m the kind of person who travels alone and tries to meet locals and stay away from tourist traps. On my first trip to see the northern lights though, I didn’t find anyone that I could link up with who was local and so I did extensive research and even rented my own car to try and stay solo on the trip. In the end I decided to join Nordic adventures for my first night to hope to see the northern lights and also because the company states that they keep group sizes small and provide a personal experience. I have to say that hands down I am blown away. Every step from booking to being picked up even to communication with Alex days after my tour was over was incredible. I don’t feel like I was on a tour, I feel like I was hanging out with a few friends. Alex’s Kota on the lake was magic and I would have enjoyed the night whether we saw the northern lights or not. Luckily... they were magic. But this company is hands down the best way I could have experienced the beauty of Finland. Thank you Alex. I’ll be back soon.

Viewing the Northern Lights

February 20, 2019


Amazing young man, Alex Rudyuk, very knowledgabl and an excellent evening with phenomenal views. This was a very memorable night, and will never be forgotten! The lights were beautiful and the serenity of the atmosphere was fantastic. We cannot thank Alex enough for this life-changing experience, and a delicious dinner of freshly cooked salmon and potatoes!

Extremamente atencioso

January 12, 2019


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!

One of the Best Adventures in the World

The activities were very fun, the activities were not dangerous. The Guids are very nice and can help you with anything. I recommend it to everyone, even to families with young children.
