Aurora Camp & Open Fire Dinner

See the Northern Lights and enjoy tasty food

An evening trip into the world of Aurora Borealis. 



We will start our trip at Xwander Basecamp in Ivalo by picking up essential winter clothing and headlamps. After gearing up we head towards the Aurora camp, which is located in the vicinity of Lake Inari. Even though the camp is only fifteen minutes away from Ivalo, it is completely free of light pollution.

All participants get to enjoy warm drinks and an introduction to the nature of northern lights once we arrive at the camp. After that we will take a stroll on the lake and through the forest while discussing and observing the beautiful phenomenon in the sky. 



After our walk it is time for an open fire dinner at the camp. You can also choose to combine your Aurora camp experience with relaxing tent sauna and ice swimming, go for a sleigh ride or hop on electric snowscooters.

What to Expect

  • Physical Requirements: The tour involves being outdoors in cold weather, so participants should be prepared for low temperatures. There is a warm tent and an indoor toilet in the camp
  • Accessibility: The experience is not fully accessible by wheelchair due to the nature of the terrain and activities. Contact us for accessible options for this tour!
  • Weather Dependency: The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed. Our Aurora Camp is designed for fun and games even on the nights when Auroras might not be present.
  • Clothing and Gear: Warm clothing and suitable winter gear are essential. Overalls, warm boots and gloves are provided if needed
  • A temperature limit of -25°C: If the forecast for the day is colder / weather conditions unsuitable, we will cancel and/or reschedule the trip. There is no additional fee in case the trip is cancelled by Xwander
  • We will call you at 15:00 on the day of the activity for a weather update
