How do they know where to go? Our guides keep a close eye on Aurora forecasts, weather, and cloud conditions. Only when the conditions are optimal do we organize these rides. This tour not only provides you with a great chance of seeing the Auroras, but you'll also learn the best camera settings to capture stunning pictures and gain insights into this fascinating phenomenon of the Northern skies.

What’s included?

  • Aurora insights
  • Guiding
  • Assistance with camera settings
  • Complimentary hot drink & snacks
  • Transfers (if required, from Rovaniemi city center or Santa Claus Village to Apukka Resort and return)

Please note

The choice of vehicle depends on the group size. A car is used for smaller groups, while a bus is utilized for larger groups.

This tour is organized only when there is a good chance of seeing the Auroras.

Ensure you know how to operate your camera so that we can provide you with tips on photographing the Northern Lights.
