Hunting The Arctic Lights

Rovaniemi, Finland

Experience hosted by Christoph

3 hours, Hosted in English, German and French

What you'll do

I will give you the best chance to see the northern lights.
The Rovaniemi city area is often cloudy and full of light pollution, what makes it hard to observe the auroras. Therefore we will drive away from the city lights to find perfect spots where the sky is clear enough to see the auroras. I will choose the route according to the weather condition. Sometimes we need to go far in order to see something. I will keep an eye on the geomagnetic activity and the weather forecast.

I will bring my camera and make pictures if we see northern lights. I will send you some pictures after the tour.

If you bring your own camera (DSLR) and tripod I will show you how to make northern light pictures.

During the trip you will also learn about the life in Lapland, local culture and a lot about the northern lights .

- I pick you up at your accommodation at the agreed time
- We drive out of the city to a good northern light watching spot
- We move on to different locations if we need to find better viewing conditions
- I will show you how to make good aurora pictures, and will make some for you.
- I drive you back to your accommodation
Other things to note
Please tell me in advance if you need any additional winter clothing.
Don't forget to bring your camera and a tripod.

Years before I became a wilderness guide in Lapland, I already had the passion of exploring wild nature. I traveled Siberia, Alaska and Scandinavia and learned all the skills needed to live in remote places. I love to share my knowledge and life experience to inspire people.

Where you'll be

I know many places to watch the norther lights and I will choose where to stop during our trip according to the weather (mainly the clouds).
If we are not able to see the auroras because of the bad weather or too low activity we will drive to a fireplace and enjoy the beautiful nature.
The tour will take between 3 and 4 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 3 reviews.

Chris was really friendly and made a big effort to ensure that we got to see the lights by driving us to multiple locations. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't in our favour but we really appreciated Chris' determination and drive to make our experience positive.

It’s a great experience! Chris is really nice of helping us setting the camera and exploring more places for Nordic lights, we are so excited and lucky to see the stars and Nordic lights! He got some professional equipments to help us keeping warm, And he prepared warm drinks and snacks which is really important because we aren’t usually experiencing that temperature, He also recommended us to go to a museum on the next day, the museum is great too! Thank for all!!

Chris is an amazing person. He really made the activity very interesting and put a lot of effort and investment into it. He knows a lot about northern lights and knows exactly where to catch them. I recommend it very much.
