The Aurora trail
2.5 hrs. excursion by car and by foot
Daily departure 23:30
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.”
