Full description

Join a professional Aurora Borealis photographer and learn the tricks of the trade for capturing that perfect Northern Lights moment. The professional photographer will take the best shots for you. Head up to 100 km away from the light pollution of the city, into the mystical forest. Your tour guide will explain how the Northern Lights are formed and tell ancient tales from the local and Lappish cultures. The photographer can provide guidance in setting up the best shooting angles, shooting screens, camera settings, and more.  Sit down for a campfire BBQ and grill some local favorites and delicacies of reindeer sausage and hot blueberry juice.

    The best sauna I've ever been to. The sauna, the pond and the food are all unquestionably good. And the guides are very friendly. I visited alone, but had a great time chatting with the other guests and jumping in the pond with them. If I ever go to Rovaniemi, I would like to do this sauna tour again. Thank you so much from Japan.

    Unfortunately due to the weather i had to change my tour to Quad bike tour and i would love to say that it worth it so much! The staff was extremely helpful with everything and the guides for the quad bike were amazing. Do not hesitate to trust them for the best activities in Rovaniemi.

    We loved this evening! The French and English guides allowed us to have a great time despite the fact that we did not see the Northern Lights. Very attentive also with my 4 year old son. Magical moments around the barbecue in the heart of nature. And beautiful photos as memories! I highly recommend !!
