Late autumn is an excellent time to see the Northern Lights, perhaps even better than the winter. The Northern Lights are created when the magnetic radiation called solar wind hits Earth’s atmosphere and reacts with the oxygen and nitrogen molecules. In the autumn the Earth is in such a position towards the sun, that the solar wind hits the atmosphere even stronger, creating a magnificent, very beautiful light show.
We offer excellent facilities to watch and admire the Aurora Borealis in autumn as well as in winter. Located by the Kemijoki river in Rovaniemi is a hill called Porovaara, on top of which there is a beautiful view towards the Northern sky. The place is truly made for viewing the Northern Lights. You can admire them dancing on the sky from our outdoor terrace. And to warm up, what would be cosier than sipping some hot juice, having a gingerbread cookie and grilling sausage by the fire in the warm kota (Lappish hut)? Because we are indeed in Lapland, the safari includes feeding a big herd of reindeer that pastures nearby. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
