Rovaniemi - Aurora Hunting at the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge

Visit operator website

Run by: The Aurora Zone

Reference number: 2917

From: £1415.00

It may only be a short transfer away from the airport, but Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is nestled in a pristine wilderness landscape.

Overlooking the river rapids and snowy forest, the setting is beautiful and feels a long way from the city of Rovaniemi, despite the transfer only being 20 minutes.  As night falls and the pitch-black skies appear overhead, you’ll see why this is one of the best Aurora viewing locations in the area.  We have an array of night-time activities planned to give you an unforgettable adventure, and to help you fulfil your goal of witnessing the Northern Lights. From an Aurora snowmobile and evening snowshoe to a reindeer sleigh ride under the night sky, the activities are unforgettable.

The lodge also offers the exceptional Northern Lights flight as an optional extra. During the flight, you will climb above low-lying clouds and will hopefully witness an Aurora display from an incredible vantage point, should conditions be favourable.

After exploring the Arctic at night, you’ll need somewhere to lay your head. Your holiday is based in traditional Finnish log cabin style accommodation, but we can also arrange upgrades for you to the Panorama Huts or the spacious Riverside Apartments.

After a hearty breakfast, we, of course, want to make the most of the daylight hours here too, which is why we include many different daytime activities. You’ll see even more of the natural surroundings during an exciting snowmobile safari, then let a team of huskies take you on a dog sledding adventure. There’s also plenty of time to relax. Unwind as the locals do in the large riverside sauna or take in the beauty of the Arctic with a dip in the hot tub (payable locally).

The Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the enchanting Arctic and keep watch for the Aurora. With a short transfer time, and an itinerary full of activities, you’ll be able to really make the most of your holiday.
