20:00-23:00 Searching for Aurora Borealis snowshoe hiking tour
We start from your hotel and drive to the forest away from the distracting city lights. When the sky is clear and luck is on our side we do a short hike with snowshoes under the flaming Auroras and make up a fire on a spot where the sky is open. And even if the sky is cloudy and we don’t spot any Auroras, we get so much! The dark and tranquil nature is such a thrilling experience and we learn a lot from our experienced guide. Around the fire we hear many stories about Aurora Borealis, both believes and facts while the guide prepares delicious evening snacks with pure Lappish flavors. With a rested mind we head back to the city – hopefully under the flaming Northern Lights.
