Activity description

The Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the northern lights, have always held a certain amount of magic and mystery. Find out more about this spectacular display from your expert guide. He'll unveil all its secrets and share his know-how about the local culture.

Dressed up in warm clothes and snuggled in a comfy and cosy sleeping bag, you'll be taken out on a special northern lights hunt.

Let the dogs pull you through the beautiful polar night, passing deep valleys and majestic mountains, accompanied by the arctic silence, only interrupted by the breathing of running dogs and your sled gliding on the hard-packed snow surface.

Hopefully, your outing will be brightened by the magnificent, flickering northern lights above your head, like a green beacon leading the way through the darkness and leaving you in complete awe.

Since you might want to capture this perfect moment in a memorable picture, you'll stop to make a small fire and enjoy a snack and a 'glass' of wine while you adjust your camera or set up your tripod.
