Kemi - Arctic Island Aurora Camp

Medium

When the night falls, start your evening program with a snowmobile drawn sleigh ride to the “Arctic Adventure Island” in the frozen Gulf of Bothnia. On the island, you will see an Aurora Borealis film presenting the myths and facts of this natural phenomenon along with spectacular photos of the Northern Lights. You will also have time to roam around the campsite, fry sausages by the open fire and to take a comfortable ride in an “Olokolo” drawn by the snowmobile on the arctic sea. Olokolos are “cozy nests”; they look like mini caravans with a big panoramic glass roof and have comfy mattresses and sleeping bags inside. With a little luck the sky is clear and the moon, stars and even the Northern Lights may show up. Your guide will have tips on how to catch the Auroras with your camera. Tripods can be borrowed.
