Plan your own northern lights holiday with us. Include day trips, huskies or even snowmobiling, stay as long as you like. Bring along friends and family. Contact us for a custom holiday which will tick all your boxes.

Located at 68 degrees north, Kilpisjärvi is a prime location for watching the aurora. Remote location means there is no light pollution, so on clear nights the aurora is visible from anywhere in the village, even from the window of your cabin!

Our group sizes are small, typically 1-4 people, so there is lots of time for personal contact with your guide to help with your photography. Small groups also mean we have great flexibility with chasing the aurora and aren’t tied to one spot waiting for the whole night.

Our professional photographer will make sure that you have the knowledge needed to take great photos of the northern lights. He will be on hand to ensure that your settings are correct and that you camera is focused. If you need, you can even rent a tripod from us.
