Full description

Lappish nature in the silence of the night offers a magical atmosphere like no other, and on this tour, you’ll experience it by hiking through the moonlit forests with snowshoes.

After a 20-minute transfer out from the town and city lights, you’ll arrive in a wilderness area where it’s time to put on your snowshoes and follow your guide to the surrounding nature.

Along the way, take a break to enjoy a warm snack and drinks by the campfire, while your guide shares knowledge about the Northern Lights. With favorable weather conditions and a pinch of luck, you may even get to witness this magical phenomenon with your own eyes - make sure to keep glancing at the night sky.

    Was a really great experience! In a small group (total 6 people) you could enjoy the beauty of the Finnish countryside! Pick-up went smoothly, equipment was given according to one's own/personal needs and explanations about Finland and the Northern Lights were given during the hike and the meal at the campfire.

    Brilliant quide

    We were a family of five from young children to grandparents. We all had a fantastic time going through the woods in the evening was magical. Half way through stopped for a bite to eat and a hot chocolate sitting by a camp fire. Every one of us had a great time and our guide was awesome. He even took us tongue door as he was concerned for the little ones on our group. Thank you

    Nice experience, but a short walk.

    The van arrived quite late to pick us up, friendly welcome, good outfit. Drive again and then put on the snowshoes. Walking and eating and drinking at a campfire; no sausages but cinnamon rolls (also tasty). Then a short walk and already back to and with the hat. It was nice, but only a short walk. We found that a minus point.
