What you'll do

Adventure into the pure Lapland wilderness, getting far beyond the confines of civilisation thanks to your snowmobile, to witness the northern lights as they should be.

“It is said that the most powerful shamans could call the Northern Lights by whistling, jump on their back, and ride them anywhere.”

Take a snowmobile through the nocturnal, snow-covered forest, far away from the residential areas and their light pollution, up the slopes of the silent snowy fells.

Up in the vast, beautiful fells, we warm up by the fire under the ink-black sky scattered with countless stars and wait with an evening meal and hot drinks. Will you be the first to see the first flare of the Northern Lights?

Take stunning photos of the glowing waves of the northern lights, the shimmering snow-covered conifers, and the majestic fells, or just let the unforgettable sights enchant you.

Our snowmobiles are new, extremely easy to use, and safe. If you wish, you can also hop into the sleigh towed by the guide and focus entirely on enjoying your Lapland adventure.
