Arctic Sunset and Northern Lights cruise by M/S Kemijoen Helmi

2 hrs. scenic cruise
Departure Saturdays 20:00

M/S Kemijoen Helmi takes you out on the river late evenings in the summer and fall to admire the arctic sunsets and northern lights.  In June and July the sun does not set below the horizon. In the evenings we have a magic light, which we like to call the arctic sunset. From late August, you can admire the northern lights as the sky gets dark. 

The captain greets you welcome on board and tells little about Rovaniemi as we pass the city centre. An informative video on the midnight sun or northern lights is shown on the screen and the captain is telling you about these magic nature spectacles and also about Rovaniemi. The vessel has an open terrace at its stern and there you can stand right under the midnight sun or blazing northern lights.

You will also receive a leaflet with information on how to bet capture the lights on your camera or smartphone.

There is a cafeteria on board selling refreshments and snacks.
