On this 3-hour trip, we combine a snowmobile sledge ride through the forest with Aurora spotting. We'll embark on a beautiful ride across the snowy forest on top of the fjell, with panoramic views of Lake Inari. As we ride, we'll keep an eye out for signs of wildlife, such as willow and black grouse, which may be hiding in the snow to escape the cold temperatures.
Our forest ride is easy and focuses on savoring the tranquility and beauty of the Lappish wilderness while searching for the Northern Lights. We'll provide tips on photographing the auroras and explain the science and forecasting of the Northern Lights.
Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights is amazing phenomenon that is very dependant on weather, especially cloud coverage. You can book the tour with 100% free cancellation terms all the way to when we meet and check the final forecast in Xwander basecamp.
