Take a night time safari driving your own snowmobile, led by a local guide, to a nearby vantage point where, if you are lucky, you may see the Northern Lights evolving in the sky (a stunning natural phenomenon which, of course, cannot be guaranteed). Includes hot drinks. Children travel in sleds pulled behind the guide's snowmobile.

Lappish DollOvernight Options

A Night in an Igloo

Duration: Overnight

Price:£120 pp. (Adults and children)

Spend a night in the grounds of the Davvi Arctic Lodge in Karesuando, sleeping in an authentic igloo! With no electricity, your ice house is lit by candles, while your bed is a block of ice, covered with reindeer skins, while each person wraps up warm in a single Arctic sleeping bag. Includes hot drinks. This experience is available on short breaks to Karesuando only.

NB: All safaris include expert guides, equipment and all necessary instruction. On our Northern Lights night safaris, we search for the best viewpoints rather than aim to cover a specific distance. On all safaris, unless a supplement is paid to secure a single rider, you may be required to share with another person from the group. All prices are per person. All distances and durations are approximate and subject to weather conditions and route on the day.
