Don't let clouds get in the way.

Northern Lights Flight above Rovaniemi

There is something special about watching the Northern lights as they dance across the sky, a dazzling array of different colours and patterns, truly magical. Your efforts to see this natural phenomenon can sometimes be thwarted by cloudy skies, but no more. Take off in an aeroplane, high into the skies above Finland, above the clouds, up close and personal to this delightful wonder.




Day 1

Whether your arriving into Finland for the first time or returning for another visit, you will always be welcomed like one of the family, and the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is no exception. Surrounded by the beautiful rapids of the Raudanjoki river and lush forest, this wilderness based lodge is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy pure nature and hunt for the Northern Lights. The property is also called Vaattunki in Finnish and it is the gateway to the Arctic Circle Hiking Area, a wilderness destination ideal for free time outdoor adventures. Your home for the next few nights is a pleasant Panorama Cabin. Made from local pine wood, representing modern Lappish architecture, these cabins boast an oversized panorama window, with views across the surrounding forests, if you are lucky you may even see the northern lights from the comfort of your bed.

Day 2

The frozen landscape that surrounds you provides the ideal playground for outdoor winter adventures. Try the three staple forms of transport to explore the landscape, husky sled,snowmobile or reindeer sled. For a gentler pace of life, strap on a pair of snowshoes or cross country skis, follow marked trails or go ‘off piste’, forever on the lookout for the nature that call these woods their home, you never know what you are going to see. Whether you choose to indulge your adventurous spirit during the blue tinged daylight hours or the starry night, you will be left overflowing with memories. Tonight you will go up, up and away into the night sky in search of the Northern lights. You will journey to Rovaniemi airport, where the plane will depart from. Your pilot will take you above the clouds or fly to cloudless skies, allowing you to get a closer look at these natural wonders. Should conditions not be favourable the tour will be rescheduled for another night.

Day 3

Another day of adventures awaits but you cannot possibly come to the frozen north with paying a visit to the home of Father Christmas. Book your space on the shuttle bus that travels to Santa Claus Village, where it is Christmas every day of the year. Pay a visit to Santa Claus’s office and discover the secrets of Christmas, send a letter from the Village post office with a special Arctic circle postmark, this is where they receive over half a million letters for Santa Claus every year. The line of the Arctic Circle also passes right through the middle of the village, allowing you to get that important photo to show you have been to the Arctic! Returning to your hotel you have another opportunity to look out for the northern lights, maybe this time you will choose to join a guided snowshoe hike. Pad your way through the silent forest with a head torch as your guide. When you reach a break in the forest, turn off your torch and be amazed by the star spangled night sky, accompanied by the glow of the Northern lights. Your guide will show you the best settings to use on your camera to get that perfect shot.
