Experience the excitement of a northern lights hunt, as well as the beauty of the wintry Ounasjoki on a snowmobile-pulled sled.
We’ll ride on the frozen Ounasjoki river, far away from any disturbing city light, on a sled pulled by a snowmobile.
Under favorable circumstances, we’ll be able to see the northern lights.
Should the northern lights not be seen, the experience in the midst of nature is still unforgettable.
Finally, we’ll cook sausages on open fire and enjoy some campfire coffee or tea in a lean-to back at the farm and hear stories about life by Ounasjoki rive.
You may attend this trip in a relaxed outfit – we’ll provide you with the necessary winter and safety gear (overalls and winter boots).
Adult € 95, children under 12 years € 55. With a snowmobile-pulled sled if the ice conditions allows.

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.
