About Aurora Hunt tour and Northern lights

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is an amazing show put on by Mother Nature and only visible on the edges of the world. Our three-hour Aurora Hunt is called a "Hunt" for a reason as we will truly be hunting for the best spots to enjoy and photograph this unique light show. As The Auroras, Northern lights, are something that nature creates there is no one place where you can be sure to see them - sometimes you really need to hunt them.

WHat is aurora hunting about? 

We use our comfortable minivans that seat 6-8 people or a 17- seater minibus to hunt the Auroras - the Northern lights - so that we have the possibility to go as far as 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. 


What does in 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. 

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.
