*tours run continuously from November through March. See dates below.
Experience the incredible natural display as the Northern Lights illuminate the winter sky above Finland and Norway. Based in the very north of Finnish Lapland, in the village of Utsjoki, you will learn about the local indigenous Sami people in between your nightly aurora chasing. Here in the northernmost town of the EU, your odds of seeing the sometimes elusive Northern Lights are the highest around. Accommodation for all five nights will be in beautiful wooden cottages along the riverside. During the daytime, you’ll enjoy visiting the historic attractions in Utsjoki while additional options are available to go snowshoeing and husky adventure dog mushing.
All tours will begin on Tuesday and end on the following Sunday between the dates of: 01 Nov 2016 — 21 March 2017
Five (5) nights accommodation in your own cottage are included. These cottages are not only perfect from an accommodation perspective but they are also perfect from an aurora chaser’s perspective. They are proper Finnish high-quality cottages, equipped with everything you will need (see the list below), including your own sauna to warm up after a cold night chasing the lights. The cottages are really fresh and clean because they are almost brand new.
Each cottage is equipped with electricity and water (tap water is drinkable), sauna, heating, indoor toilet, shower, bed linen, and towels. Kitchen and cooking utensils and cutlery for 8 persons are also provided along with a fridge with small freezer, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, television, cleaning equipment, and wifi.
You travel provider for this tour: Aurora Holidays is a local tour provider based in Utsjoki, Finland. They are a fantastic small company that we’ve been working closely with over the past year. We have taken this exact Northern Lights tour last year and absolutely loved it. That’s why we wanted to feature them on our site. We know you’ll love spending time with them in the north of Finland chasing the northern lights, experiencing Sami culture, and experiencing winter they way it was meant to be enjoyed.
