Grab your camera and let the magic of the Northern Lights enchant you on this photography tour of Lapland at night. Plus, learn top tips to capture the moment forever thanks to a professional photographer.
What to expect?
What better way to experience one of the world's most beautiful natural phenomena than a photography tour, ensuring you'll have memories of the Aurora Borealis to look back on forever. A must-do activity on any visit to Rovaniemi is watching the colourful illuminations dance against the night sky. Don't forget your camera!
Having been picked up from your hotel in the Lappish capital between 8 and 10 pm, you'll head out on this unique adventure. Make your way into the darkness of the snow-capped forests of Finland, around 25 miles (40 km) from the bright lights of the city centre. Here you'll find the ideal spot to experience the natural wonder.
Under the magically illuminated night sky, explore different views from the beautiful places in the countryside, while a professional photographer explains some tricks and tips to capture the colours of the Aurora Borealis. What's more, they'll be snapping photos throughout the evening, which will be sent to you following the activity so that you'll have great memories to share with your friends and family.
At the end of your photography tour, you'll enjoy a barbecue for dinner, as part of which you'll have the opportunity to try a typical Lappish delicacy: reindeer meat. As you keep cosy around a campfire, you'll also learn historic and folkloric tales from the area's locals, adding to the mythical atmosphere of the evening. Following your meal, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Rovaniemi.

- After your Northern Lights Photography Tour, you'll be sent the photos taken during the activity at no extra cost so that you'll have a souvenir of your experience.
