Aurora Borealis Safari on Jet Skis

3 hrs. Jet ski safari
Daily Departure at 20:00 

According to scientific statistics, Aurora Borealis - the Northern Lights are active 280 nights per year. In the Midnight Sun season we cannot see them as the sky stays light all night. As soon as the darkness returns, the Auroras start to paint the night skies…  

We take off into the darkening night and cruise along the river, away from the city, passing beautiful islands and river landscapes. We make a break on a small sandy beach and enjoy a light picnic and keep an eye on the northern sky. The Auroras require a dark sky, which we have in Lapland again after the midnight sun season, from mid August. 

In order to drive a jet ski you need to be 18 yrs. of age and possess a driver’s licence. Children travel as passengers on the jet skis.
