Activity description

Let the night’s sky lead the way on this snowmobile experience in Lapland.

Freestyle into the heart of the Tagia Arctic Circle on this snowmobile experience near Rovaniemi. Staying static is no way to experience the dramatic light show that appears every year in the extreme north, head out to capture it at its best on this snowmobile hunt for the Aurora Borealis. Leaving the artificial lights of the city centre, ride deep into coniferous woods – following the lights overhead and setting up your campfire under the stars.

This tour is organised and operated from Rovaniemi on the outskirts of the Finnish Taiga. Part of the Lapland area of the Arctic Circle, this Boreal Forest is the world’s biggest wilderness -  ideal for star gazing and watching the Northern Lights due to its low levels of light pollution.

Meet your guide in Rovaniemi for this evening snowmobile adventure to find the Aurora Borealis. Suitable for groups of friends and families alike, this scenic trip is ideal for total beginners and expert off-roaders. Due to the unpredictable nature of the Northern Lights, using a snowmobile gives you access to parts of the landscape that would have been inaccessible with any other form of transport –offering a scenic setting and totally private viewing experience. A 25km route following a lead guide, track the distinctive evening colours of the Aurora, travelling deep into the Taiga forest – pausing in the best location for photographs and a campfire. When you stop beneath the auroras, the professional photographer will assist you with not only setting up your camera but will also take pictures for you with their own high-quality camera.  Keep warm by the campfire as you tuck into a traditional Finnish BBQ,  following your guide back into town where your transport will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.

Operating during the Aurora season from October to April, this activity is suitable for anyone with a full, valid driving licence. Children are welcome to join but will be taken by sledge on a separate snowmobile for safety reasons. Please note that Northern Lights sightings are subject to weather conditions and solar activity so therefore they are not guaranteed.

Very good
  • 3 / 5

Too cloudy so absolutely no chance of lights. Not much snow so very corrugated trail ride and fairly slow. These conditions are unpredictable and uncontrollable and that is fully recognised. The office was extremely busy at the time and no one could move. Again, fully understood for this time of the year. Good guides and knowledgeable.
