Full description
Begin with a team meeting about the tour of the day then get a short briefing about current weather conditions, aurora forecasts, and your destination of the day. The focus of this tour is the Rovaniemi area and you will travel by minivan. After reaching the destination you will leave the minivan and continue on foot to reach the perfect spots in the middle of nature. In the destination, your guide, a professional photographer, helps you prepare your cameras for Northern Lights photography and get ready for the show of a lifetime. Northern Lights are always unpredictable and there is no guarantee that they will be found every night. However, this tour gives you the best possible chance to experience and photograph these mystical wonders of the Arctic area. During the night you are a member of an exclusive team led by a professional photography guide. Simply put, you will join real aurora hunters who rely on the following to succeed in their mission: • background research into local weather and Aurora forecasts • live information feed coming directly into the minivan •local knowledge of all the best viewing spots •willingness to go the extra mile, or a hundred miles, to find the aurora During the night, you will normally visit two to three different locations, which are always chosen according to local weather conditions and photograph opportunities. This means that if the sky is clear and there is a possibility to see the aurora 100 kilometers away, we will take the chance and drive you there. Altogether there are over 50 locations from which to choose the best ones each night.

    It was just wonderful. The guide (Finn) was super hospitable and showed that he really has knowledge, not to mention that he is very funny. The group was not that big, which is wonderful. We saw the northern lights and took several pictures. Finn helped everyone who had cameras set them up. I had no camera, but I was not left out of the photos. All registered by a professional

    Yes, definitely a great tour. Well organized, skilled guide. We visited 4 different locations and we saw the lights in two of them. And we could warm at the fire a d the sausages went well with the glöggi. All perfect. As we were without a camera our guide took photos for us. If you want a perfect Northern lights hunting tour - this is a good one.
