Aurora Camp & Open Fire Dinner

See the Northern Lights and enjoy tasty food

This evening trip takes you to the world of Aurora Borealis, more commonly known by the name Northern Lights.

We will start this activity at Xwander offices in Ivalo town by gearing up with necessary winter clothing. Before departing outdoors – we’ll talk about the Northern Lights science, mythology and how to read forecasts in a form of short presentation.

The camp is located in the vicinity of Lake Inari and even though only 15 minutes ride from Ivalo to the North, it is completely hidden of light pollution.
At the camp, we will head to the lake ice and the forests for a stroll and talk more about the Northern Lights mythology and Arctic nature.
Back at the camp, it is time for Open Fire Cooking, while keeping our eyes on the sky between the dishes.   

You can choose to combine your Aurora Camp with Ice Swimming and Tent Sauna! (You can make selection on your booking checkout)
