Experience nature with a night in an Aurora tepee! Enjoy a half-day husky tour, dinner under the stars, and why not a sauna after the tour.
Check in time 14.30
Autumn in Lapland is an exciting time for change. This phenomenon begins as the days get shorter and the weather gets colder. The birch acquires a gentle shade of yellow, the aspen turns red, and the leaves of blueberries and lingonberry bushes become bright red. The high season lasts two to four weeks in September/October. In addition to the autumn colors, this time of year is when the northern lights return, which means that you can have an unforgettable autumn experience in the Gold of Lapland, and although the northern lights are often associated with cold and snowy winter landscapes, it does not mean that they do not appear during the milder months, quite the contrary!
Highlights of this tour include a night in an Aurora Tepee under the starry sky, guided Northern Lights hunt behind a husky team, kennel visits 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! (Varies by availability)
*If you want to add that little extra to your stay, you can also book a sauna. Enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning stove.

Northern lights watching!
When darkness begins to creep in, we pack our backpack, tighten our shoelaces and head out into the wonderful nature. Today’s walk is about 6 km and halfway in 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 outside and if you are lucky, witness the beautiful northern lights. The Nordic tipi stands on Gårdberget and you have a 360 degree view. While we wait for the Northern Lights, we will teach you more about the Arctic nature, about life in the north and the basics of northern lights and night photography. We take pictures of the northern lights, of ourselves and of the nature around us.
Whether you are a beginner or more experienced in photography, our guides will help you take pictures to take home with you for your album
Then we walk back to the guesthouse and have dinner.
A northern lights tour by dog sledding 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 dog sledding tour with carriage or sleigh pulled by a team of lively and friendly Siberian Huskies.
We start the tour at 16.00.The tour goes along forest roads with many open spaces where nothing blocks the magical northern lights.
When we get back, we have dinner in the guesthouse before it’s time for you to walk down to your Aurora Tepees for a lovely night and hopefully the northern lights dance in the sky.
Breakfast in the your tipi before it’s time to go up to the guesthouse and pack up and leave us for this time.
