Optional Activities

Northern Lights Snowshoe Walk

A magical evening adventure hunting for the Northern Lights. You’ll hike to the top of a nearby fell, before taking a rest for hot drinks and sandwiches to observe the pristine night sky, and hopefully the Aurora.

Evening Snowmobile Sledge Ride

Tucked into a cosy sledge drawn by a snowmobile, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and take in the magic of the pristine polar night sky. Hopefully the Northern Lights will shine on you as well.

Starlight Snowmobile Safari

When the enchanting polar darkness falls and the stars are shining you will start your snowmobile for the drive into the forest. Explore the magical wilderness by starlight, and hopefully the Northern Lights will be out as well.

Other activities are available on request, please speak to your skiFinland specialist for other options.
