The visibility of Northern lights depends for example on the weather and activity of the Sun, but this trip is to offer you the best chance to see the lights on the best possible location in Ivalo – Saariselka area. We take it seriously
Our sites are absolute dark far from the village lights and hotels. This is important because most of the lights are relatively faint so in absolute darkness you will see much more.
The longer you stay the more you see. This is why our tour is relatively long. The best hour to see the lights is just before the midnight but the best lights may appear whenever. On the way to the site we stop the car even several times if needed and follow the lights.
During this tour we also spend nice time in a tepee on the best possible site for following the sky and barbeque for all tastes and diets.
We will also advice you in taking pictures and we will make pictures ourselves which we share with you from our cloud service.
We follow the daily weather forecast
