Aurora Borealis Safari by Snowmobiles from Saariselka


Experience the Arctic night by driving through the snow-covered forest and on a frozen river. Sip warm beverages and savor a snack by a campfire and learn more about the Northern Lights and Lapland.

With a little luck, you’ll travel under a bright sky lit by the moon and the stars and maybe see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). The Northern Lights are one of nature's most spectacular phenomenons, and Lapland is the perfect destination to witness the magic for yourself.

On average the Aurora Borealis appear in the sky around 200 times per year, so there is plenty of opportunity to spot them if luck is on your side. Leaving the bright lights of the towns and resorts behind provides the best opportunity to see the Northern Lights in their full glory. Good luck and happy Aurora hunting!
