Explore the nature on a night time arctic nature snowshoe trip
Experience the night-time nature; join us to explore the different feeling of the wilderness after dark on night time arctic nature snowshoe trip. The lack of light intensifies your senses to see and hear like no other time of the day. In the silence, we can truly let the nature speak for itself. The Arctic night is something special. Clear skies are dotted with thousands of stars and if you’re lucky, the shimmering glow of the northern lights.
We snowshoe on easy terrain, advancing slowly. The aim is not to cover long distance, but to enjoy the moods and learn to see in the shadows. Moonlit nights make travel easier; sometimes we can see nothing but clouds and snowflakes falling down. Over a hot drink, we talk about the arctic nature and how it copes the harsh conditions of Lapland. If we are lucky, we might encounter with a fox in the distance or maybe even northern lights.
If you are planning on doing some northern lights photography, we recommend you to book our photography workshop before this trip. There you will not only learn the settings required for successful photography, but some of the history and science behind the northern lights.
