What to expect

There are many ways to get out of the city and see auroras, but for the adventurous nothing compares to viewing them by snowmobile. Riding across the snow under the stars is a real thrill! Arrive at a remote, outdoor fireplace where your guide will tell you all about the Northern lights, as you grill sausages over an open fire and drink hot juice. With a little luck, the lights will come out and fill the sky.
