Experience the magic of polar night and toboggan down the longest toboggan slope in Finland! The activity starts with a chair lift ride to the top of fell Kaunispää, from where Saariselkä’s city lights open in front of your eyes as a sea of sparkling lights. The toboggan slope is  illuminated with light art, just follow the aurora lights that guide you back down to the valley.

Aurora Tobogganing is possible only during lift operation hours, please check the opening hours www.skisaariselka.com. 

The Aurora Experience light art illumination can be best experienced during polar night season in December and January, when it is dark also during daytime. After days become longer after mid January, the aurora lights are only on during night skiing days.

The price of Aurora Tobogganing ticket includes proper toboggans suitable for our 1800m toboggan run, a helmet and a 2h ticket for the chairlift to go back up you can get several runs in. 

Know before you go

  • Minimum age of passenger is: 7
  • Snowcats and maintenance vehicles are operating in the slope after opening hours. Tobogganing outside the opening hours is strongly prohibited due to safety reasons. It is very difficult for the snowcat driver to see skiers or persons tobogganing in the dark due to a “cloud” of snow around the machine. Impacts of a collision between a person and a snowcat or another maintenance vehicle can be fatal.
  • Aurora Tobogganing is possible only during lift operation hours, please check the opening hours www.skisaariselka.com.
