What you'll do
Aah yes, the beautiful pictures of Aurora Borealis! The best that Lapland has to offer, the Northern Lights, right? Im going to be totally honest with you: To see the Borealis is all about luck. Thats why I want you to experience other great Lappish things; to have a good time for four hours with open fire, two different types of huts / wickets, traditional Lappish / Finnish food & treats, stories, lake views, the polar night, the surrounding nature and atmosphere. And if we are lucky, the skies are clear and the universe serves us right, the Borealis will add a final touch to our shared traditional Lappish experience in the winter nature. Heres what is going to happen: – I will pick you up at 18.00 sharp – A drive of about 20 kilometers away from the city´s light pollution. – A short walk through the night forrest to the lake – We start a fire in the hut. – Free hanging around the area, spotting the borealis ect. while I cook. – The Dinner – We can try to figure out do the Borealis really hum... – I will watch the borealis radar – If theres no Borealis by the lake, we head on top Ounasvaara for different views & change for Sledging – I will drop you off where you want
When I was young I worked as an elf in the Santa village; hence this experience is arranged by a professional, whose curriculum vitae ends with the job title "Official Adjutant of Santa Claus." Born and raised in Rovaniemi, I have done a fair share of traveling always thinking what to do, see, understand and experience in a new place. Putting together these two - my knowledge of Rovaniemi and Lapland & my experience as a traveler – led me to build these unique and diverse experiences for You. It makes me proud to be able to share the best of what Rovaniemi and Lapland have to offer.

Where you'll be
We start from the center and drive about 30 kilometers to lake Norvajärvi that has zero light pollution - the perfect place for Borealis viewing. I will tell you more about this special area when we are there.
