WHat is the activity about? 

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is an amazing show put on by Mother Nature and only visible on the edges of the world. To catch the Auroras we need 3 things; Aurora KP (activity level) of above 1, darkness and open skies. Our five-hour minivan Aurora Extreme Hunt is called a "Hunt" for a reason! We will truly be hunting for the best spots around the Inari area to enjoy and photograph this unique light show. The tour also includes a visit to our wilderness cabin in the far north, where there is no people, no city lights - just beautiful nature that leaves you speechless. 


What does it include?

Our Aurora Hunt is organized for small groups to assure the quality of the service for our guests. All our guides are professional "Aurora Hunters" and can answer all your questions about Auroras, Finland and the culture. The Hunt is always customized by the guide according to weather and the Aurora forecast, but it always includes the transportation, english speaking guide, warm drinks and some snacks.

 We use our comfortable minibuses that seats 6-8 people to hunt the Auroras so that we have the possibility to go as far as the Russian of even Norwegian border if needed to find the Auroras. We cannot guarantee that you will see the Northern lights, but what we can guarantee is that we will do everything in our power to find them for you. 

If you really want to see the Northern lights, it makes perfect sense to come to Lapland. We have pleasure of witnessing the Northern lights dancing on the night sky on 200 nights a year, on average.
