Winter Holiday Package

From mid-October to end-March

Our Magic of the Aurora Borealis & Arctic Winter holiday takes you 450km North of the Arctic Circle to the northernmost part of Finnish Lapland where untouched Arctic landscapes meet dark, starry skies: the perfect setting to make your dream of seeing the Northern Lights come true. 

During this unforgettable adventure, our knowledgeable guides will chase the Northern Lights with you, amidst the world’s cleanest air and deep within the beauty of the nature of the north. In addition to the unmatched sights of your journey, you will also be treated to the tastes and smells of the Arctic in our brand-new restaurant.

With us you will begin to understand the lifestyle and culture of the north and experience some truly unforgettable activities.

Join the northern lights hunting trip

According to old myths, the Northern Lights appear when a fox is running along the sky. People believed that the sparks from the fox’s tail create the phenomenon that we call the Aurora Borealis. During your six-day adventure to Lapland, we will lead you into the wonderful and mystical realm of northern nature. Leading you on this adventure are our experienced Northern Lights guides. In addition to these intimate nature experiences, we’ll also pamper you with our chef’s exquisitely designed and prepared dishes.

In Utsjoki, located in the far north of Finnish Lapland, the Northern Lights can be seen from September until the end of March. Nature is wonderful yet unpredictable, and as such we cannot always guarantee the appearance of the Northern Lights. Nevertheless, our experienced and passionate guides will always do their best to make your dream of seeing the Aurora Borealis come true and provide you with the best opportunities to experience everything Lapland has to offer. 

The Magic of the Aurora Borealis & Arctic Winter is an all-inclusive, Northern Lights-focused holiday package that includes accommodation in a Finnish holiday cottage with a private sauna, as well as food prepared with care from local ingredients and complimented by beverages reflecting the tastes of the North. In addition to the Northern Lights hunts included in the holiday package (three nights) and the Utsjoki village tour, you have the opportunity to book additional winter & cultural activities of your choice and according to your interests. All you have to do is arrive to Ivalo at the appointed time and we will take care of everything else.

Northern Lights Hunting (We select the three best evenings)

Our guides are Northern Lights hunting professionals actively monitoring the Northern Lights and solar activity throughout your trip, ensuring that they are always ready to guide you to the spectacular aurora borealis. During three evenings of your holiday, our guides will be searching the night skies and seeking for the best possible place from where you will be most likely to see the Northern Lights. Sometimes, the journey isn’t that far at all, as the Northern Lights can occasionally be visible as soon as you step out of your cottage! Through careful analysis and planning, our guides always choose the best nights, places, and times for your Northern Lights hunts.

What would a holiday be, if you didn’t have stunning photos to remember it by? That’s why you will also receive photography guidance and direction from us. Our guides are passionate about photography and will help you take the best shots with your camera, if your camera is suitable for photographing the Northern Lights, as night photography requires certain settings and features that your camera and lenses be capable of. If you have any questions about the Northern Lights prior to your trip, please feel free to contact us. If you are fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights, our guides will gladly take pictures for and of you with the Northern Lights; so that you will get a memory of the Northern Lights even if you don’t have your own camera.

The Utsjoki village in Lapland during winter

Utsjoki - Stories from Historic and Modern-day Life

As part of your holiday, we want to tell you about local life and history of the area. What better way to do this than to tell you stories about Utsjoki and Sámi culture and show you some local attractions, from past to the present? This program is always planned according to each day’s opportunities and availability.

Feeding the reindeer

As a traditional Sami reindeer herder family, we have some resident reindeer around our resort. During the winter the reindeer are fed every day and as our guest you’ll get to experience what it is like to feed reindeer. You’ll get to join us and the reindeer in their enclosure for the feeding. And if the reindeer are feeling brave, they’ll eat directly out of your hand.

Reindeer are not fully domesticated animals though. As a responsible travel operator we want to respect their natural tendencies and will never force human interaction with them. By nature reindeer do not like to be touched. Unfortunately at some tourist attractions they don’t have a choice on the matter, which causes them a lot of stress and discomfort. When you feed the reindeer with us it is always on the terms of the animals, which makes the experience more memorable when a shy animal chooses to approach you.
