Available: 2019-08-23 to 2019-09-23 starting from $755 AUD

Overview

If you don’t fancy the sub-zero temperatures associated with Northern Scandinavia in winter, consider an autumn tour. Enjoy the best of Finnish Lapland, staying in the lakeside retreat and an AURORA DOME, located 230kms north of the Arctic Circle. This local resort offers a great range of early Northern Lights activities as well as comfortable Scandinavian style accommodation.

Enjoy peaceful afternoons at the lake, discovering the nature and wilds of Finland. You can pick as many berries and mushrooms as you can carry, the lake is full with tasty fish and the Jeris River is just a stone throw away.

Day 1 – Arrive and transfer to your hotel in Northern Finland

From Kittilä airport it is only a 45 minute transfer to your hotel where you will be welcomed and receive information on the days to come. After settling in to your accommodation, you can enjoy your dinner in the restaurant. All food is prepared from local and organic ingredients.

Day 2 – Secrets of the Northern Lights and Aurora Campfire

After breakfast you can either relax and enjoy the beautiful nature or add on one of our exciting safaris.

In the evening you will get to know the secrets of the Northern Lights. Your guide will tell you of the appearance and the birth of the Northern Lights. After an informative presentation, you will head out and make a campfire. While making pancakes on the campfire, you’ll find yourself on the perfect spot to admire the Northern Lights.

Dinner in the restaurant and overnight in cozy hotel room.

Day 3 – Hunting Auroras and ‘Glamping’ in an Aurora Dome

After breakfast you can either relax and enjoy the beautiful nature or add on one of our exciting safaris.

For the evening you have two options to hunt the Northern Lights.

Explore the Lappish nature and hunt the Northern Lights on a horseback with your guide or head out by car in search of the Northern Lights. Your guide will check the weather forecast and take you to the area with the best chances of sightings for that evening.

Dinner in the restaurant and overnight in an amazing Aurora Dome.

Spend an extraordinary night camping in the Aurora Dome. It is a comfortable way to spend a night in the wilderness in the comfort and warmth of a cozy bed and a fireplace. The see-through side wall of the dome is directed towards the northern sky with a view over the Lake Toras-Sieppi.
