With the glorious kaleidoscope of season’s change coupled with milder weather, chasing the Northern Lights in autumn is a truly enticing proposition. And, this comprehensive itinerary will see you explore the beauty of Finnish Lapland, taking in the aurora with a night spent around a campfire and a choice of included activities. Perhaps explore on horseback, or let a Northern Lights expert drive you out in search of those ethereal reds and greens. You’ll also enjoy hearty breakfasts and dinners throughout, along with transfers and a stay in charming, timber-clad accommodation. It all ends with a night in an Aurora Dome – a luxury igloo tent.
Day 1: UK to Harriniva
Flying into the wilds of Finnish Lapland you’ll be met at the airport and brought through old-growth forests to your cosy riverside accommodation, all blond-wood accents and Scandi chic. You’ll also enjoy the first of your included dinners, with fresh, local ingredients showcased across menus of regional delicacies, served by a roaring fire, of course. Then, as night falls, it’s time to begin your programme of aurora activities.
Day 2: Aurora Campfire

Then, after dinner, you’ll head out to chase them with a choice of included activities. For something truly evocative, saddle up for a horse-back ride under the aurora or consider taking a car for perhaps the best chance to spot the lights. Your aurora guide will drive you out to remote locations, carefully chosen based on the night’s weather.
