Aurora tour holiday is packed with programme for northern lights hunter. Located at 68 degrees north, Kilpisjärvi is an excellent location for seeing the aurora, statistically 3 out of 4 nights there is a chance of seeing the “Green Lady”. In this remote location you have very little light pollution, so even the fairer northern lights are visible.
Every night we’ll be out chasing the aurora. Thanks to the Scandinavian mountain range, Kilpisjärvi is blessed with it’s own micro-climate which means if it’s cloudy over the village we’ll simply cross the boarder into Norway and head down into the fjords where it is often clearer. It also works in reverse and is the reason people will travel all the way from Tromso to Finland just to see the lights. By choosing an aurora tour in Kilpisjärvi you maximize your chances of seeing the northern lights.
We keep the groups small so we can provide a high level of service and greater flexibility. You’ll be joined on the tour by fellow aurora hunters, people like you who are committed to seeing the lights, so you’ll know you have something in common. Your tour is led by a passionate aurora hunter, photographer and professional outdoor guide, who will make sure you visit a different location every night. Should there be time to sit around a fire while waiting for the aurora, he will be able to tell you a lot of stories and anecdotes about the lights, but also about life in the arctic.
This tour doesn’t have fixed dates, but you can request the trip for any time during the winter season. The group minimum is 2 people and once dates are booked, the same dates will be opened for a maximum 4 other people. If you wish this to be a private tour, a small additional cost will be added. During your stay, you can also book additional day programme with us or our trusted partners from snow shoeing to husky rides.
