Description

Immerse yourself in the mythology and science behind Finland’s night skies on this safari featuring a sumptuous Lappish picnic. Travel with an experienced guide in hopes of glimpsing the stunning Northern Lights—or Aurora Borealis—and pick up fascinating trivia along the way.

Join your guide and travel to a secret spot beyond the Rovaniemi city limits. As you speed through the tundra, steep yourself in the folklore and science that have been used to explain to the mystifying cosmos for centuries. Then, learn why this area of Lapland—situated only 6 miles south of the Arctic Circle—provides visitors with the ideal geographic conditions for catching sight of the Northern Lights. Arriving at a pristine viewing location, disembark the car and set forth into the brisk nightscape. Cross your fingers and hope to see the auroras, caused by solar winds colliding with the earth’s atmosphere.

As you stand in awe of the stellar canopy, enjoy a tasty Lappish picnic. Sample grilled snacks from the fire and warm up with a hot beverage prepared by your guide. Learn tips and tricks for photographing the Northern Lights, and then snap a few images of the dreamy winter scenery before preparing to return to Rovaniemi.

There is nothing wrong with this activity. However, it is a bus trip to a site just off the road. Lots of light pollution, so little chance to see the northern lights.
