        Inari-Saariselka
        Stop: 45 minutes - Admission included
        Join the Aurora Experts on our legendary Northern Lights trip to reach the best places and see this great natural arctic phenomenon. The guide shares information about the Northern Lights and the old mythology around them. Listen to the stories about local life and nature by living fire. Experience some Lappish shamanism and see your future with our great Aurora guides! Make pictures by the hints from the Aurora guide. The visibility of Northern lights depends for example on the weather and activity of the Sun, but this trip is to offer you the best chance to see the lights on the best possible location in Ivalo – Saariselka area. We take it seriously Our sites are absolute dark far from the village lights and hotels. This is important because most of the lights are relatively faint so in absolute darkness you will see much more. The longer you stay the more you see. This is why our tour is relatively long. The best hour to see the lights is just before the midnight but the best lights may appear whenever. On the way to the site we stop the car even several times if needed and follow the lights. During this tour we also spend nice time in a tepee on the best possible site for following the sky and barbeque for all tastes and diets. We will also advice you in taking pictures and we will make pictures ourselves which we share with you from our cloud service. We follow the daily weather forecast

        Expensive Aurora
        Pure northern light tours can be a complete waste of money if there are NO LIGHTS. The craze for these tours are not because of the barbeque in the tepee or log cabin in the cold dark nights but purely for the hope of seeing the aurora . Unfortunately in the most COMMON occasion of no show , these are pure waste of money. If we all know that's it's a very unpredictable occurrence depending on several factors, why schedule these tours on daily basis and HOPE for the best!! Lapland is costly anyways and all these aurora tours are non refundable tours but are exorbitantly priced and there are no options for a repeat / refund. I have experience of 4 such tours who all ran it on hope but probably was pretty sure there will be no auroras. My advice to all aurora chasers would be to first research the weather and the aurora activity and book any of these at the very last minute. Aurora predictions are unreliable if checked 1-2 days ago and hence prior bookings can just waste all hope, effort and money.

        Great tour
        Firstly, I want to express my gratitude to the company for their exceptional service. I didn't pay close attention to the instructions and ended up not reaching the meet-up point on time. Remarkably, they went out of their way to return and pick me up without any communication from me. At that moment, I was on the verge of giving up and heading back to my car to return to the hotel. However, the driver approached me and asked if I was waiting for the tour. I am truly thankful for their assistance. As for the night itself, the sky was remarkably clear, creating the perfect setting for observing the aurora. The drive to the cabin took approximately 15 minutes, followed by a short hike up a small hill in the woods. An open area in front of the cabin allowed us to capture the mesmerizing beauty of the northern lights, and the clarity of the night sky also offered the opportunity for some breathtaking stargazing.

        Guide did not show up and didn't notice me. I went there to see the northern light and they just blew up the change. I need my money back where can I get refund

        No northern lights due to weather
        The tour operator should have advised the customers the weather was not ideal for northern lights viewing before. Our guide tried hard, but it ended up as an evening inside a Smokey Tippie.

        Fun evening!
        Spending the evening hours in a wilderness teepee, enjoying the company and Irena/Maris enriching us with the history of the area and the northern lights. We enjoyed roasting food over the fire. While the cloud cover was too much for us to see the rare northern lights, the evening was fun overall!

        Honest, but unfortunate
        Tour was cancelled at the time of pick up due to a change in weather conditions. We did appreciate the honesty that we were not going to be able to see the lights, given the tour was quite expensive.

        Must go place
        This is an excellent place. This village is full of activities in winter; you can do Aurora hunting by bus, snowmobile, in foot as well, Lapland Safari is a good option for that. Husky tour is excellent by Husky & Co. Skiing is perfect from here, the lifts are there in the village, they have renting place for skiing which is huge and excellent and have beginners classes as well. Riekonlinna Hotel by Lapland Hotels perhaps is the best option as a hotel there, otherwise Holiday Inn, Saariselka Inn and Hotel Tunturi are good options for Hotel and Apartment. You should have layers on for the cold there, it's easily -11 - - 20 at the winter, however you can rent jumpsuits from Lapland Safari's office which is downstairs to Riekonlinna Hotel. Cheers

        First snowmobile of the season!
        We booked the late night aurora hunting snowmobile excursion of the season leaving from Saariselka and had an excellent time. We appreciate the itinerary which included some snowmobiling, adequate time looking for northern lights, camp fire with local fare and constellation orientation. Highly recommend!

        Jukka is a cool guide. We enjoyed his company. Seeing the amazing Northern Lights was the hit. Hope you see it too.

        Snowmobiling and Ice Fishing with Jukka
        Two of my friends and I went snowmobiling with Jukka. We had a great time snowmobiling and even saw a reindeer and the northern lights. Ice fishing was a new experience for me, but after brief instructions, I felt confident and comfortable out on the ice. Out of my 10+ years of adventuring, Jukka might just be the best guide I've had venturing out into the bush. From the very beginning, he gave instructions clearly, being sure that everyone in the group understood. When, because of conditions outside of his control (i.e. the weather and trail conditions), our situation became dangerous, Jukka decided to end the safari before we reached our original destination. In my experience, only top-notch guides are able to access a situation, recognize dangers, and change plans accordingly without getting overwhelmed. Jukka did all of this quickly and got us out of a potentially dangerous situation. Our excellent guide made for a fantastic safari out in beautiful Lapland.

        Cross country skiing at Saariselkä
        None of us had experience skiing, but with the guidance of our guide, Yukka, and countless falls, we gradually got the hang of it. Skiing was truly a workout, never have we felt so warm in freezing temperatures. The activity can be customised to the group’s skiing experience. For our level of experience, we felt the duration of the activity was just right. We also made a pitstop at a husky farm for hot chocolate (payable) and got to see some puppies and sled dogs. (The toilets have no sinks to wash your hands, snow and hand sanitisers were used instead). We ended off the activity with a 400m walk to the carpark, with our skis in tow, and had a nice cup of fruit tea and biscuits in the van. We would like to commend Yukka for his patience and words of encouragement. He made sure everyone had fun while prioritising safety. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

        Amazing Experience with Awesome Guide.
        I was so lucky to be able to see the Northern Lights. It was a very good weather and it didn't take long for the amazing view to show itself. The guide is very passionate and professional. Lapland Welcome provides free outfits and equipment for customers. Don't worry too much if you don't have enough clothes or suitable shoes for this activity. The campfire barbecue was great :)) And the traditional Finnish New Year celebration, the melting tin horseshoe, was just so cool. Highly recommended!!

        We had a great time with Sami
        First, we were blessed to be able to see the northern lights. Not that the company puts on the show for you but really depends on the statistics with the experience of the guide. Second, our guide Sami was great. He’s really nice and knowledgeable! Even things he’s not sure about, he will google it for us. I had a camera on my own which I didn’t know is capable of taking the northern lights, thanks to Sami’s guidances. There were only 3 of us out in the dark & cold forest, it was great. He makes sure we are comfortable and warm all the time, and also that we are having a good time (which we did - 5 hours in the cold with non stop northern lights display; a memory that will forever be with us). We prebooked the activity & the pick up was on time. We kinda waited at the wrong spot as there were two locations for the same name, but Sami came to look for us. Thank you so much, Sami. Hope you had a good time with us too.
