What you'll do

Experience the northern lights in complete comfort and warmth, as you're pulled in your heated sleigh through the stillness of the ethereal night-time forest, illuminated only by the stars, moon and nature's most incredible light show.

“The fells are drawn against the night sky like the chest of a sleeping giant, snow crystals glittering like pearl dust in the moonlight.”

Take a seat in the heated Aurora sleigh and relax on this Lapland adventure, as your guide tows the sleigh with a snowmobile through the snowy, starlit landscape, all the way to the top of the fells where you’re far away from the residential areas and any light pollution.

On arrival, we’ll prepare our cameras and compose photographs of the pitch-black night sky, scattered with clouds of countless stars hanging above the softly glowing landscape.

We wait for the northern lights to appear in comfort by a roaring campfire, enjoying hot drinks and listening to traditional tales until someone spots the first flare.

Now your imagination is the only limit: the northern lights rippling in enormous waves across the sky, the constellations, snowy trees, and the shimmering snow-covered fells…
