Autumn Colours and Northern Lights Tour

Lapland → Helsinki

Trek into the unspoilt Arctic wilderness and discover the photogenic nature of Finnish Lapland on this 6-day tour, surrounded by the spectacular colours of the “ruska” season.
Our itinerary compiles the essential Autumn activities, such as tundra trekking, lake fishing, meeting arctic animals such as huskies and reindeers and and chasing the Aurora Borealis. The magical light show put on by nature is at its most visible at this time of the year, giving us a great possibility to witness the magic during our stay.
From the calm and tranquil beauty of Lapland, we will travel by train through the country and end our journey in Helsinki, the vibrant seaside capital of Finland.
