Northern lights hunting in the autumn

Let’s go hunting for the Northern Lights in autumn!

In autumn before the first snowfall, northern lights are most spectacular because snow is not yet on the ground to reflect light. Autumn forest also has a magical atmosphere!

Our guide will take you on a hike to the Tankavaara trails to see the Northern Lights and the beautiful starry sky. The forests and mires of Tankavaara are quiet areas and there are no lights to disturb your views: the stars and northern lights shine brighter. We also enjoy snacks and hot berry juice by the campfire. At dusk the forest looks quite different from the daylight hike and our guide will tell you about the nature of the area.

Before the Northern Lights hunting:

Wear outdoor clothes and shoes according to the weather. The trip is suitable for  adults and children with normal physical health and we can take small breaks as often as needed during the hike.

Before leaving, come to the Tankavaara Wild reception and bring your ticket (paper or mobile), our staff will check the ticket.

You can also order a three-course dinner to enjoy before your hike in the Old Gold Prospector restaurant in the Gold Village (38€/person).

Duration: 3 hours

On most clear evenings the Northern Lights are visible, but we cannot guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights during the trip. In the dark woods, however, there is plenty of things to see and experience.

Groups of four or more can book the discounted group rate. Select Group Rate when booking.
