Looking for the Northern Lights in the wilderness with Visit Lapland Tours

As the evening darkens, we arrive at a lantern-lit kota-hut in Pattaskivalo. We sit by the fire on the cosy reindeer skins and hear the guide telling stories about local history and the present. At the same time, we enjoy hot berryjuice and a delicious piece of Lappish dark salmon bread, reindeer pie and fried sausage.

Under the light of lanterns, you can walk in the surrounding forest. In a snowmobile sleigh, you can safely get deeper into the forest. If the solar winds have been favourable and the sky is cloudless, you can get to see the Northern Lights show offered by nature in the northern sky. That leaves no one cold.

Pattaskivalo is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights in the Rovaniemi area, as there is no light pollution nor noise.

If you need, you can get warm overalls, boots, a beanie and gloves from us for the trip. Please arrive half an hour before departure time to get the clothes.

Joyfully in a wintry forest

Welcome to join us for an outdoor time in the forest! The program includes listening to silence in a snowy forest, walking on snowshoes, sliding on a sled and pancakes by campfire. This is what Visit Lapland truly is. 

In the morning, daylight begins to brighten as soon as the tour begins, and on the afternoon excursion you can experience the blue moment, i.e. the time when nature is completely colored in blue twilight. There are three cozy huts in the area, where we sit
in the warmth of the fire on soft reindeer skins enjoying hot berryjuice, pancakes and
fried sausages while hearing stories about Lapland and its nature.
This trip is done in a small group. Welcome to join us in creating unique memories!

If you need, you can get warm overalls, boots, a beanie and gloves from us for the trip. Please arrive half an hour before departure time to get the clothes.

Snowmobiling and fishing

We start by giving instructions on ice fishing. There are salmon under the thick ice in the pond. However, catching salmon is not guaranteed. You need a bit of luck and patience, but the chances of catching are higher here than in other places.

After ice fishing, we salt the salmon and leave them to smoke. At this point, we have the opportunity for an amazing, guided hour of sledding. After the sledding safari, you can taste smoked fish in the house.
