Full description

Chase the Northern Lights on a guided Arctic adventure into the Lapland wilderness on a snowmobile. Enjoy a Lapland-style barbecue snack and the unique snowy landscape at night, illuminated only by the aurora.

Go deeper into the brilliant winter landscape of the Arctic Circle in order to chase the auroras. Let your guide lead you on a different kind of snowmobile adventure in an almost completely dark setting, where only moonlight, stars, and snowmobile headlights will light your way.


Take in the forests and lakes rising like mysterious shadows towards the night sky in this snow-covered landscape. Warm up at an open fire and wait for the Northern Lights to dance for you in the night sky while you enjoy some warm refreshments and snacks. 


If you are lucky and the sky is clear, you might see the flaming Northern Lights dancing in the sky, surrounded by the penetrating silence of the arctic wilderness.

Overall it was a decent experience. Good quality skidoos. I think they could improve on a couple of things. When we got to the skidoos they were covered in deep snow - they could have cleaned them down or had them covered as it wasn't pleasant having to clean the snow off with our hands. When we got to the place they make sausages nothing was ready so you have to hang around outside until they've sorted out the fire and room (about 15 mins) - it would be very easy and so much nicer to send someone ahead to have it all ready rather than being in the cold and dark. The "sausage" would be better served and nicer with some bread or flat bread so it is easier to hold than just a hot sausage in a tissue. Small inexpensive things that would make it a much better experience in my opinion.

We drove the snowmobiles about an hour to a frozen lake, where we got sausages, corn and marshmallows. Chatted with the guides about Lappland and we’re even allowed to go on a faster lap with our snowmobiles together with the guide. We were unfortunate with the polar lights, BUT if you have a chance it is on this lake. The view is 90% sky, it’s beautiful. Would 100% recommend and do it again. So much fun!

We did the snowmobile experience with Aurore boréale 2 days ago. Bad luck for us, too many clouds, but the guide told us when he came to pick us up at the hotel, despite that they took their time and we did two sites to be able to see the Aurora. For us who don't speak much English, we managed to understand it and make ourselves understood. Guides very nice, funny and attentive, nothing to complain about!
