The Mythical Northern Lights

The Mythical Northern Lights

Lapland is full of mythical creatures, on land, under water and up in the sky. Join the night-time adventure and search for the elusive Northern Lights. We snowshoe through silent forest as we wait for the show to begin. Take your camera and be prepared to break Instagram, as we will teach you to take those mind blowing shots of wandering Northern Lights. However, no guarantees they will appear, as we humans cannot control the sky. In any case, the old mystical forest at night will be an experience to remember. In the dark, snowy trees look like peculiar fantasy creatures. After this tour you will have the skills needed for night and aurora shooting in future. 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.
