Rovaniemi - Aurora Hunting at the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge
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 stunning and a world away from the city of Rovaniemi. 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. Using our experience of creating dedicated Northern Lights holidays, we have an array of night-time activities planned to give you an unforgettable adventure, and the best possible chance of seeing the Northern Lights. From hunting by snowmobile and snowshoe to a reindeer sleigh ride under the night sky, our local experts will guide you to different lookout points to provide as many Aurora viewing opportunities as they can.
When it comes to Northern Lights activities, the lodge really excels, and so we are proud to offer our guests the chance to try the amazing Northern Lights flight as an optional extra during their stay. During the flight, you will climb above any clouds and will hopefully witness an Aurora display from an incredible vantage point.
After exploring the Arctic at night, you’ll need somewhere to lay your head. Choose from traditional Finnish log cabins or stylish Panorama Huts all nestled in the beautiful wintery landscape. Once you’re well rested, take the short walk to the restaurant area to fuel up with a healthy serving of buffet-style Lappish food with a modern touch.
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 too. 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 plenty of time to relax too. 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.
The Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the enchanting Arctic and hunt for the Aurora. With a short transfer time, and with an itinerary full of activities, you waste no time in making the most out of your winter holiday.
