Photograph The Northern Lights
Easy | 3 hours | Starting from 99€
Join the night-time adventure and search for the elusive Northern Lights of Lapland.
Let's go snowshoeing through the silent forest while waiting for the show to begin. Want to learn how to take pictures of Northern Lights? Take your camera and be prepared to leave your Instagram followers in awe, as we will teach you to take those mind-blowing shots of wandering Auroras.
Remember that as humans, we don't have control over the sky so unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you will see the auroras. On a clear night, the chances are around 50%. However, it is still an amazing experience to wander the dark snowy forests and admire the sky full of stars and the peculiar forms that the snowy trees form, so the tour will be something to remember, no matter what!
After this tour, you will have the skills needed for night-time and Aurora shooting.
Tour length is 3-4 hours.
Auroras can be seen on clear, dark nights in Autumn, Winter and Spring. Pihka Outdoors offers tours from September to early April.
Let's keep an eye on the weather and northern lights forecasts and book the dates with most possibility to see the auroras!
We offer transportation from your accommodation in Ylläs area. Pick up from Levi for an extra fee. A hot drink, small snacks and tripods are included. Warm clothing is provided if needed.
The northern lights can only be seen when the sky is clear. Even then they are not guaranteed as auroras appearing depends on the Sun activity.
