On this 3-hour tour, we combine a snowshoe walk in the forest and Aurora hunting. We embark on a beautiful trek through the snowy forest, looking for signs of willow and black grouses as they dig in the snow to escape cold temperatures. Depending on the snow depth and structure of the day, we will choose either traditional snowshoes or modern gliding snowshoes for our trek.

We will meet at 18:00 at Xwander Nordic, Ivalontie 12. Here, we will gear up with snowshoes, headlamps, and winter overalls if needed. After gearing up, we’ll drive 15 minutes to the Lake Inari shore and choose the best spot for our trek based on factors like cloud forecast and wind.

We will pack some hot drinks and snacks, and get ready to explore the peaceful winter forest and hills. This activity is recommended for those aged 12 and up. For younger children, the Aurora Camp is a better fit due to the fun of tobogganing and the option to get warm indoors if it gets bit cold, ensuring everyone can enjoy the snowy landscapes in a way that suits them best.

The entire tour with prep and transports lasts around 3 hours (4 hours with dinner or tent sauna). Return to Ivalo around 21:00. Additionally, you have the chance to combine this adventure with an Open Fire Dinner, Aurora Ice Floating, and Tent Sauna & Ice Swimming for an extended experience.
