The northernmost region of Finland, Lapland is a vast area of forests and fells situated inside the arctic circle. The area is home to the indigenous Sami people and a popular destination for winter tours. From reindeer-sleigh and husky-sled rides to snowmobile excursions, here are our tips for nature safaris in Lapland.
 
Husky Safaris
Riding a husky-drawn sleigh through Lapland’s forests and plains is a hugely popular experience, ideal for families with children who’ll love to snuggle in the blanket-lined sleds. Trips leave from all resorts and typically include a sled ride, drinks by the campfire, and time to meet the huskies—and possibly their puppies—as you learn about their care from the handlers. Some safaris also include the option to take turns driving and riding your sled with other passengers for extra excitement.
 
Reindeer Safaris
Taking a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride is not only the gentlest way to experience Lapland’s winter wonderland, it also offers an extra-special sprinkling of Christmas magic. Young children will associate the reindeer with Father Christmas, feel comfortable with their slower gait, and adore the cozy sleighs and sound of jingling reindeer bells. Typically morning affairs, trips leave from most Lapland resorts. What’s more, most include delightful extras such as hot berry juice, the chance to learn about the reindeer from traditionally costumed Sami herders, and souvenir international reindeer-driving licences for everyone to take home.
 
Snowmobile Safaris
Perfect for travelers wanting to up the tempo of their Lapland adventures, snowmobile safaris offer a range of formats and are available from most resorts. Options range from leisurely paced, family-oriented trips that let you drive a snowmobile to a reindeer farm for a reindeer-sleigh ride to full-throttle excursions to hunt down the Northern Lights. Ideal for thrill-seekers, these latter tours run in the evenings and let you zoom through the fells and pine woods along darkened trails. Most include a campfire stop to warm up with hot drinks and learn facts and legends about the mysterious lights.

Private Aurora Tour (5 or more) by Aurora Experts- Ivalo-Saariselka

The visibility of Northern lights depends for example on the weather and activity of the Sun, but this trip is to offer you the best chance to see the lights on the best possible location in Ivalo – Saariselka area. We take it seriously Our sites are absolute dark far from the village lights and hotels. This is important because most of the lights are relatively faint so in absolute darkness you will see much more. The longer you stay the more you see. This is why our tour is relatively long. The best hour to see the lights is just before the midnight but the best lights may appear whenever. On the way to the site we stop the car even several times if needed and follow the lights. During this tour we also spend nice time in a tepee on the best possible site for following the sky and barbeque for all tastes and diets. We will also advice you in taking pictures and we will make pictures ourselves which we share with you from our cloud service. We follow the daily weather forecast

Private Aurora Tour (5 or more) by Aurora Experts- Rovaniemi

Private Aurora Tour (5 or more) by Aurora Experts- Rovaniemi

Our Northern Lights trip has got excellent feedback already for years. This is because our Northern Lights spotting place is the best possible place where are no other lights at all, northern sky is fully open and the weather is often clear even if it is cloudy or foggy in the town. By our long experience the right hours to be out there is 11-12 PM.Great surprises happen! The likelihood is about 80% to see some kind of lights. Is it the highest in the world? We do not know but we think so Why to book our organized trip? It is all about knowing the best place for following the lights. Many people believe that a glass igloo helps you seeing the Northern Lights. It is a special experience indeed to sleep in one but actually they don’t help you seeing the lights. The best chances and places are on mountains and hills having great view to north and what is really important for photographing – far away from all artificial lights.
