On this 4h hour trip we combine snowshoe walk in the forest and Aurora spotting. We have a beautiful walk on top of the fjell trough snowy forest with views to Lake Inari. While we walk we look sings of wildlife, for example willow and black grouses since they dig in the snow to escape cold temperatures. 

Our walk is around the forest is easy and the focus is on enjoying the silence and beauty of Lappish wilderness, while spotting for Northern Lights. With groups with kids we will include some extra fun play in deep snow. We will give you tips of photographing auroras and explain the science and forecasting of the Northern Lights.
