Multi-activity weeks with a focus on searching for the Northern Lights in the late evenings can be booked in Autumn and multi-day sleddog tours from mid February. Obviously, the longer the period of time you spend with us in the arctic, the more likely it is that you will get to experience the northern lights.
Autumn starts with spectacular blazing colours as far as your eyes can see, and then the hoar frosts come with the freezing nights, patterning the very ground you walk across. Leaves and then trees are dusted and then laden with crystalising powder until the whole landscape sparkles. Changes can be gradual or overnight and temperatures can fluctuate 20 degrees in a day so each day you can approach the landscape with a new lens, and new expectations.
Add to this the early nights which make it easier to see the northern lights and glittering lakes in which capture their reflections, and it is easy to see why this is one of the best times of year to enjoy this natural phenomenum.
It is no surprise that this is considered one of the two best times of year for heading north by those who actually live in Scandinavia - the other is Spring, when the skiing tracks are at their best.
But why go north to just enjoy the aurora? There are so many fun outdoor activities that you can try in the arctic at this time of year!
Our northern lights packages are built around an activity-filled week based out of our husky farm and the surrounding wilderness area with a focus on end-of-day activities which place you in great locations from which to potentially view the illusive northern lights.
