The Northern Lights has always been the magical phenomenon that keeps us all dreaming and they still have a big role in the Lappish mythology. 

 

On this trip we will head out into to the forest of the National Park in search of the mystical ”Aurora Borealis”.  We will have a break by camp fire where we will enjoy a hot drink and a bun. Our guide will tell us stories of the ancient past and beliefs of the Sami people as well as the scientific explanation of this magical light phenomenon. In case that the nature does not show the Northern Lights to us, we will still enjoy the peace and quiet of Lapland´s unique nature.
