See the Lapland Northern Lights
Autumn in Lapland is an exciting time of change. This phenomenon starts when the days get shorter and the weather gets colder. The birch turns a gentle shade of yellow, aspen turns red, and the leaves of blueberry and lingonberry shrubs turn bright red. The peak season lasts two to four weeks in September/October. Besides the autumn-colors add the magic of Aurora borealis at night, and you can have an unforgettable autumn experience in Gold of Lapland, Even though the Northern Lights are often associated with cold and snowy winter scenery, it doesn’t mean they don’t show in the milder months!
Highlights of this tour include a night in a Aurora Tepee under the starry sky, guided aurora hunting behind a husky team, kennel visit and photo opportunities of the Aurora borealis, and of course local food such as reindeer, brown bear, moose, trout and our famous smoked salmon soup with saffron, once tasted, never forgotten!

Northern Lights watching!
When darkness begins to creep on, we pack our backpack, tighten our shoelaces and head out into the wonderful nature. Today’s walk is about 6 km and halfway through the tour we stop at a traditional Sami lávvu (nordic tipi) for hot drinks and coffee. Here you can choose to either warm yourself by the open fire or go out and, if you are lucky, witness the beautiful northern lights. The hut stands on Gårdberget and you have a 360 degree view.
While we wait for the Northern Lights, we’ll learn more about arctic nature, life in the north and the basics of northern lights and night photography. We take pictures of the northern lights, of ourselves and of nature around us.
Whether you are a beginner or more experienced in photography, our guides will help you take pictures to take home to your album
Then we walk back to the guesthouse and have dinner.
The northern lights tour with dog sled is the perfect way to increase your chance of seeing the sometimes hard-to-find northern lights. Let the autumn darkness of Lapland envelop you as we embark on a 10-mile dog sled tour with carts or sleds pulled by lively and friendly Siberian Huskies.
We start the tour at 16.00.
The journey goes along forest roads with many open spaces where nothing blocks the magical northern lights.
When we get back we will have dinner in the guesthouse before it’s time for you to hike down to our Aurora Tepees for a lovely night and hopefully dance the northern lights in the sky.
Breakfast in the hut before it’s time to go up to the guesthouse and pack up and leave us for this time.
