Northern Lights Safari with Heated Snowmobile Sleigh on Lake Inari

Embark on a cozy night-time adventure through the winter forest in search of the northern lights

Experience the arctic northern lights safari on lake Inari, one of the least light-polluted areas in the world! Glide across the snow in a heated snowmobile sleigh, offering comfort while you observe the stunning night sky. During breaks you can sit on comfortable reindeer hides and sip on hot drinks, adding to the Nordic experience.

Enhance your adventure with an optional open fire dinner. If you choose this option your safari will be divided into two parts with a delicious, traditional meal enjoyed by the fire in a Lappish tipi in between.

For an added touch of Finnish tradition, you can also opt for a tent sauna, complete with the exciting option for ice swimming. Combine the thrill of chasing the northern Lights with authentic arctic relaxation!

We will meet at 18:30 in Xwander Nordic, Ivalontie 12.  Duration of the whole trip is around 3 hours (4 hours with dinner or tent sauna). Return to the Ivalo around 22:00-23:00
