Searching for the Northern lights in small group (18:30-00:30 or later …)
Are you ready for a real adventure? Before the start of the tour, our guide will analyze the weather to predict the best places for the Northern Lights show. Most often we can find the aurora on the coastal islands, sometimes the clear sky will wait for us in Finland. Once we find the perfect place, we will set up a campfire and start capturing the show on camera. Relax with hot drinks, warm up with a hot meal, and enjoy delicious cookies. The guide will take pictures during the visit and make sure you have your perfect picture with the northern lights. If you decide to bring your own camera, the guide has tripods available and will help you set up the camera. The photos taken during the visit will be sent to you the next day. The duration of the tour can vary from 6 to 9 hours, depending on the weather.
Snowmobile Safari (09:00-17:00)
Finally it is time for what many consider the highlight of the tour! Our snowmobile safari gives you the opportunity to venture into the wilderness and discover the mountains of the far north. We begin the adventure with a comprehensive introduction to safety and a practical demonstration. You do not need any previous skills to drive a snowmobile. All you need is a normal physical condition and a Class B driver’s license. We will drive in couples, a driver and a passenger on each snowmobile, with the option to change underway. We will drive through the picturesque mountains and through the spectacular snowy valleys, from 250 metres up to 900 metres above the sea. The trail is 15 km one way, that is 30 km in total, and we will be on the snowmobiles for about 2 h 30 minutes. Due to the dramatic topography, a reduced speed is maintained during certain parts of the tour. The highlight of the track is the Finn Ice Lake, where we can speed up and get the adrenaline pumping! If the weather permits, you can try ice fishing on the lake. At the end of the trip, we will have a hot meal and coffee in a comfortable lavvu (Sami tent) around an open fire.
It is also possible to join us on our evening excursion, in order to have greater possibilities to see the Northern lights. It is also possible to include two more activities and stay the whole day at Camp Tamok. Departure from the hotel at 09:00 and return to the hotel at midnight. Ask us for more details.
