Experience the excitement of a northern lights hunt, as well as the beauty of the wintry Nordic nature by forest walk and open fire.
We’ll arrive at the Happy Fox forest farm away from any disturbing city light and head for the lean on to enjoy the magic of the northern lights and the star filled skies of the North. Then we take lanterns and head to the dark wintry forest.
At the forest we make observations of winter nature and experience the excitement of darkness in midst of the forest. A local guide tells about surrouding nature and stories about the old Finnish ways, Gods and elfs.
If the fox is pleased with us – as the old saying goes – we may be granted the chance to view the northern lights.
Should the northern lights not be seen, the experience in the midst of nature is still unforgettable.
We’ll cook sausages on open fire and enjoy some campfire coffee or tea in a lean-to back at the farm, get knowledge about Auroras and hear stories about life by Ounasjoki river.
You may attend this trip in a relaxed outfit – we’ll provide you with the necessary winter gear (overalls and winter boots).

Northern lights or aurora borealis are natural light displays, consisting of colorful, dancing and constantly changing figures in the night sky. The closer you are to the polar regions of the Earth, the more northern lights you’ll see. In Finland, they are most commonly seen in Lapland in winter. Northern lights are caused when charged particles of solar wind collide with the Earth’s atmosphere.
Predicting Northern lights is based on satellite observations of solar wind and bursts of the Sun. When particle bursts in the Sun are detected, northern lights can be expected to be seen on Earth within a couple of days.
For northern lights hunters, there are several professional forecasts on the Internet. Forecasts of northern lights can be provided, approximately, three days in advance. Because northern lights are a very unpredictable phenomenon of the nature, forecasts shouldn’t be trusted too heavily.
