An evening trip into the world of Aurora Borealis. 

We will start our trip at Xwander Basecamp in Ivalo by picking up essential winter clothing and headlamps. After gearing up we head towards the Aurora camp, which is located in the vicinity of Lake Inari. Even though the camp is only fifteen minutes away from Ivalo, it is completely free of light pollution.

All participants get to enjoy warm drinks and an introduction to the nature of northern lights once we arrive at the camp. After that we will take a stroll on the lake and through the forest while discussing and observing the beautiful phenomenon in the sky. 

After our walk it is time for an open fire dinner at the camp. You can also choose to combine your Aurora camp experience with relaxing tent sauna and ice swimming, go for a sleigh ride or hop on electric snowscooters.
