Important InfoInfo
Experience the magic of Lapland and photograph the amazing Northern Lights! Going Aurora hunting with our professional guides, you have the best possible chance to witness the Northern Lights. We are Lapland’s top tour company specialised in Aurora photography and will ensure that you get the photos of a lifetime.

The focus of our expedition is the Rovaniemi area and we travel by minivan. We start with a team meeting about the tour of the day. You will get a short briefing about current weather conditions, Aurora forecasts and about our destination of the day.

Northern Lights are always unpredictable and there is no guarantee that we will find them every night. However, we give you the best possible chance to experience and photograph these mystical wonders of the Arctic area. What sets us apart from other tour providers is a genuine determination of finding the Northern Lights. With us you are a member of an exclusive team led by a professional expedition guide. Simply put, we are real Aurora hunters and rely on the following to succeed in our mission:
• background research into local weather and Aurora forecasts
• live information feed coming direct into our minivan
• local knowledge of all the best viewing spots
• willingness to go the extra mile – or a hundred miles – to find the Aurora

During the night, we normally go to 2-3 different locations which are always chosen according to local weather conditions and photographic opportunities. This means that if we have a clear sky and a possibility to see the Aurora 100 km away, we will take the chance and drive you there.

Altogether we have over 50 locations from which we can choose the best ones each night! After reaching our destination we leave the minivan and continue on foot to reach the perfect spots in the middle of the nature. In the destination our guide, a professional photographer, helps you prepare your cameras for Northern Lights photography and we are ready for the show of a lifetime!

My wife and I went on this tour with Nadia and enjoyed ourselves a lot despite not being able to see the lights. We learnt some night photography skills and did some BBQ. Nadia is a good and professional guide. Thank you!

We were scheduled to take the tour but the weather forecast was against us. Re scheduled to next night and again the weather did not help. But the company was responsible enough to tell us about it!! Although we did not get to take the tour, the honesty and responsible manner the company managed it, I would definitely recommend it !!

I enjoyed this trip although we didnt see the lights. We learnt some valuable techniques for night photography and have a stunning photo from the trip. It will stand us in good stead on our quest in Sweden again this week.

Even if we didn’t see the auroras, it was still a fun tour and the guides made you feel like they really want you to see the lights. They take extra efforts to take you places with better chances and make you feel comfy throughout. Worth it!
