What you'll do

Get ready for a private Northern Lights Hunting and Photography adventure.

The Aurora Borealis, also called the Northern Lights is a natural light phenomenon in the Earth’s atmosphere. It is a truly magical experience to see the lights dancing in the night sky, but it requires expertise and knowledge of the area to find the best spots to view them.

I will come to pick you up from your accommodation in Rovaniemi city center or otherwise agreed location.

We will leave the city lights behind and drive deeper into the Aurora Zone. The goal is to find the perfect conditions to witness the magical light show in the night sky. I have many spots to go to and we might try out some new routes as well. Hot drinks and small snacks will be served during the trip, but you shouldn’t go out at night on an empty stomach.

On this tour I will explain you why and how the Northern Lights occur as well as some old folk tale about them. I will bring my camera gear with me and teach you how to photograph the Northern Lights with your own camera. Pictures will be shared with you after the tour. More over we will have plenty of time to talk about Lapland and share our experiences. I'd be more than happy to hear about your home country too.

This tour will be fun and easy going in which we have all the flexibility to stop and go as much as we want to give us a higher chance of catching the lights!
Other things to note
Remember to eat well before we go.
Remember to dress up warmly and bring extra layers.
Hunting for the Northern Lights requires patience. Since it is a natural phenomena no one can guarantee that we will see the lights, but regardless of that we will have a great time!

Meet your host, Janir

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I left my previous career in marketing to work as a Safari Guide and a host in Rovaniemi. What makes me happy is to be able to provide people with the best possible experience they can get on their holiday. I am a true Northern Lights enthusiast myself and I go out hunting and photographing them whenever I can. I offer a private service so that people can join me on my hunts and have a unique local experience with the best chance to see the lights.

Where you'll be

As we drive outside of the Rovaniemi city you will get to see the surrounding nature in a completely different light. When darkness takes over, the landscape shows its more mystical side. You will see the beautiful frozen rivers and snow covered forests glowing under the stars and moonlight. And if we are lucky the Northern Lights will show up to reveal the true magic of Lapland. Each tour is unique as we choose our destinations based on weather.
