Activity description

Snowmobile through the dark winter landscapes and chase the Aurora Borealis in the Finnish Lapland near Rovaniemi. 

One of the best times to spot the Auroras is said to be in the evening before midnight so this exciting safari begins at 8 PM. Driving through the dark winter night is an exciting experience on its own but if you are lucky to catch the Northern Lights dancing, it will truly be a spectacular evening! The Lapland of Finland can provide star studded clear skies with a mystical moon, all prepared for the beautiful lights to show themselves.

A guide will meet you in Rovaniemi city center and provide you with warm winter clothing. Then you are off to snowmobile into the night! Good stories, tasty snacks, and a hot beverage are all guaranteed. The snowmobiles are locally produced BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker models. These models are not only extremely comfortable to drive but are gentle to the environment as they are practically smoke and smell free. Do not miss out on the beautiful nocturnal adventure!
