The Aurora trail
3 hrs. excursion by car and by foot
Daily departure 20:00
The magic of a nocturnal forest can only be highlighted by a blaze of Auroras.
We will take you out at the prime time of Auroras, as they are said to be visible most likely at the hours around 21:00 and midnight. For sure you have been wondering what the Auroras are and how come they are visible only in the north. Tonight you will get the answers to all these questions! At our Lumi-Resort's sighting location you have snowshoes available, in case you wish to walk further out in the forest and try to catch Auroras from there. While you are enjoying your time in the pure nature, our guide is preparing some snacks and hot drinks for you at our outside camp.

What we say about this tour:
“The Auroras are impressive, even for us, Lappish born and bred. So we can only imagine what it feels like to see this magnificent nature phenomenon for the first time. Therefore we pay outmost attention to the venue where we take our guests for observing. I definitely recommend the dinner with this excursion. The food is delicious and you get to deepen you knowledge on the Auroras with the displayed video.”
All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2018 – 31.3.2019, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. Daily Departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). Private excursions are available for min 6 persons (adult fare).
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker–models. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free.
Children travel in a sledge pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies.
The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (29 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.
You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.
