Full description

This Northern Lights hunting tour by snowmobile takes you deep into the wonderful winter landscape of the Arctic Circle. Your guide will lead you on a unique adventure through nature where only the moonlight, stars, and snowmobile lights illuminate the way.  

In the middle of the wilderness, stop to observe the sky. Be surrounded by lakes and forests rising towards the night sky. Without city lights in sight, be amazed by the gorgeous view. The guide will prepare an open fire for warmth, where you can enjoy warm refreshments and grilled sausages. 

If you’re lucky and the sky is clear, see the flaming Northern Lights dancing in the sky in mysterious silence.

    Everything was magical Pick up - 100% on time Both guides were super friendly and always ready to help. You get all the warm clothes you need. Snowmobile driving is so much fun. We were able to see the northern lights. Magical experience It takes a little longer than 4 hours Only tiny suggestion would be, better sausages and maybe some bread for the sausages

    Great tour with great guides. There were sausages for the barbecue and corn on the cob for the vegetarians. The warm juice kept us warm as we waited for the Northern Lights. We weren't very lucky at our spot, but we suddenly saw some on the way back and the guides stopped again and took photos of us and the northern lights despite the "closing time".

    We did this activity and it was a success. The guide, Olavi, very nice, made the effort to explain everything in English and Spanish. We were lucky to see some small auroras although there was a full moon and it was difficult. I think this is a good option because if you don't see them, you at least get the experience of the motorcycle.
