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 know by the name Northern Lights.

We will start our trip in Xwander Basecamp in Ivalo with gearing up with necessary winter clothing and headlamps, and then head towards the Aurora Camp. The camp is located in the vicinity of Lake Inari and even though only 15 minutes ride from Ivalo to the North is completely hidden of light pollution.

On arrival to the camp you will get warm welcome drink and we’ll talk about Northern Lights science, mythology and how to read forecasts.

We will then head to the lake ice and the forests for a stroll and talk more about the Northern Lights mythology and Arctic nature. When back on the camp it is time for Open Fire Cooking, while keeping our eyes on the sky between the dishes.
