Finnish Lapland offers countless experiences for those wishing to witness the northern lights. From its abundance of glass igloos, where guests can relax in comfortable surroundings, to the more adventurous escapades in the wild. Join a team of husky dogs and chase the lights, zip up in a dry suit and float beneath the shimmering night sky, or climb above the clouds on a flight dedicated to finding the aurora.

Spend the night in an Aurora Wagon
For those seeking splendid isolation beneath the stars, opt for a night in a glass-roofed wagon in Finnish Lapland. Inside a double bed, small kitchen and a bathroom provides everything required for night in the wild. And attached to the back, a wood-burning sauna on skis can be arranged. You’ll be whisked out into the wilderness to hunt for the Northern Lights in complete privacy then collected in the morning in time to enjoy a hearty breakfast back at the resort.
Aurora Ice Floating
Finland's abundance of frozen lakes are a wonder to explore by boat or even by floating aurora hut, yet a specialist aurora suit allows Arctic explorers to get up close and personal with the water and the night sky. A surprisingly soothing experience, simply zip up in an Arctic- grade all in one, and follow your guide. Your entire body will be protected whilst you are guided on a unique floating experience where you can search for the aurora between the stars.
