We help you to get the most out of your “chasing for auroras”!
The trips start with a ride in a sled behind a snowmobile, driven by one of our guides. Depending on the conditions of the snow and the ice on Lake Torneträsk the tours can go to different locations but we always go to a place were there is no light pollution and were we get nice open views of the sky. Before the ice conditions on the lake are safe, we do the tour in the area around Abisko National Park.
We have a tipi were we can get protection from the wind and a fire inside that keeps us warm while we are waiting for the auroras. When the lake has safely frozen and the ice is thick enough, we do the tour to one of our two locations that we normally use. One is a wooden hut with skis under it wich we pull out on the ice with snowmobiles as soon as it is safe. It is spectacular to sit in hut with a nice warming fire, on the top of a frozen lake in the middle of nowere up in the Arctic!! And you can just imagine the feeling when Miss Aurora shows up!!
The other location is an isolated tipi with a wooden deck around it. The place is really nice with open views in all directions, including the silhouette of Mount Noulja. Also here we have a nice fire inside so we can keep warm. Our guides can help you with standard settings for your camera or take photos that you can share. We also have some tripods that our guests can use. Warm clothes are included and so are warm drinks and a light snack.
