Northern Lights Photography Tour from Rovaniemi

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join this legendary Northern Lights photography tour from Rovaniemi to maximise your chances to see this great natural arctic phenomenon and learn to take pictures of Auroras. Your destination is the best possible spot: a small mountain where the sky is often clear and view to the north perfect. If you are in luck, you may spot the Auroras already during the 45-minute journey away from Rovaniemi and artificial lights if the weather is good.
  • Knowledgeable guide handles navigation through the dark
  • Photographer-led tour increases your chances of frame-worthy photos
  • Bundle up in provided thermal adventure gear
  • Access to a traditional teepee, a warming fire, and snacks
What to Expect
Begin your evening tour with hotel pickup and relax while someone else handles navigation through the dark Arctic night. Stop at the tour office to suit up in provided thermal gear, which ensures you’re warm and comfortable during your time in the elements. Next, your guide takes you to a spot far enough away from light sources so you that you can get the best photos of the Northern Lights. Gather around a teepee for guidance from your guide on how to set up your camera and to hear about Northern Lights mythology, Lappish shamanism, and scientific facts about the striking natural phenomenon. Then, spend some time trying to snap the perfect photo. Get relief from the cold Arctic air with hot beverages and barbecue around the fire.
