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.

    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

    Very beautiful and immersive experience, first immersed in the Lappish forests and then whizzing on the frozen lakes. You will be provided with everything you need, thermal suit, boots, balaclava and helmet. After a brief explanation on how to drive and the directions to follow, off you go. The highlight is obviously waiting for the Northern Lights, sipping hot blueberry drinks and freshly cooked sausages. I give 4 stars and not 5 just because I think the experience is a bit too expensive ...

    A really great experience! We were very lucky with the weather and saw beautiful Northern Lights. The guide was very nice and told a lot. There were sausages and hot drinks by the fire. The snowmobile safari was a lot of fun. We received good instruction and felt safe. We drove to a lake (length was very comfortable) where we saw the Northern Lights. On site we had enough time to enjoy everything. After that it went back. Highly Recommended!
