Hunting the Northern Lights
The Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis is perhaps the most beautiful natural phenomenon you will ever have the opportunity of seeing. An explosion of green, fluttering like a veil across the arctic sky. When you are looking up at the Aurora, you realize how small you are in the vastness of nature.
On the Aurora Express tour; our driver will take you far from the light pollution, and drive east towards the Russian border, west toward Finland, or south into the Pasvik valley, depending on the aurora forecast.
