No trip around the Auroral Oval would be complete without mentioning Finland! Especially due to the fact that the Northern Lights are visible for around 200 days a year in the around beautiful Lapland. This obviously makes our chances of catching the show even higher, but while we wait for the day to end, there is plenty to see and do all across the countryside.
For those of us in the Christmas spirit while searching for the lights, will be happy to know Finland houses the official hometown of Santa Claus, Rovaniemi! Anyone can visit Santa any day of the year, so don’t worry about missing your chance for photos. After we’ve had our fun exploring Santa’s Village we can then recharge at the Arctic Snowhouse, one of Rovaniemi’s ice restaurants, as we await nightfall and the appearance of the Northern Lights.
If you are looking to be a bit more active with your free time while you wait for sundown, then you should consider the lovely ski resort city of Levi. It is home to one of Finland’s largest ski resorts, which houses slopes suitable for all skill levels. When you’ve finished exploring the slopes and the day begins to fade, we can then polish off the night with a Husky safari into the countryside. Just imagine a serene trek across the freshly fallen snow under the world’s most beautiful nightlight, simply marvelous!
