Rovaniemi - Excursion to Aurora Borealis Camp


This excursion takes you to the Aurora Borealis Camp located approximately 10 km away from the city lights with unlimited view to the northern sky. At the camp, you will find the Aurora Borealis Theatre built inside a massive snow igloo, presenting a film about the myths and facts of the Northern Lights along with spectacular photos of this natural phenomenon. You will have time to roam around the resort, take a sleigh ride with snowmobile drawn sleighs, or you can just lay back in the snow observatory by the open fire admiring the northern sky. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy traditional reindeer burgers in the Kota (teepee) made by the open fire. With a little luck the sky is clear and the moon, stars and even the Northern Lights may show up. You should bring your own camera with you. Your guide will have tips on how to catch the Auroras with your camera and you can borrow tripods.
