Cross Country Skiing (approx. 2 hours)

The traditional Finnish winter sport is definitely something you have to try on your trip. Cross country skiing used to be the most common method of transportation – there is no other method as quiet taking you through frozen and snowy scenery than on skis. The guide shows you how to use them, and once everyone is ready, you take a nice route admiring the beautiful scenery, stopping to take pictures and enjoy warm drinks on the way.

Aurora Camp (approx. 2.5 hours)

Seated comfortably in a sledge pulled behind a guide’s snowmobile you are driven to one of the chosen camp spots where an open fire and hot drinks keep you warm while waiting for the sky to show the magical northern lights. The atmosphere by the camp fire is an experience by itself and located away from any artificial lights, Lake Inari is one of the best places for aurora viewing.

Aurora Snowshoeing (approx. 2.5 hours)

Snowshoeing on the frozen lake during night time is an adventure of its own. You wander on the lake and surrounding wilderness heading for the camp, where you sit back with hot drinks while gazing at the sky, waiting for the aurora to appear.
