Tour description provided by Viator

Go in search of the famous Northern Lights in Finland on this small-group aurora borealis safari to Lake Inari from Saariselkä. Wrapped up warm against the cold, travel deep into the Finnish wilderness by sled with a guide. Keep watch on the skies for sightings of the spectacular Northern Lights and — with a little luck — marvel at spectacular views of the evening light show around Lake Inari. Savor a warming dinner by the campfire and enjoy personalized attention from your guide on this small-group tour — limited to 10 people.
Begin your tour with a pickup in central Saariselkä, then travel out to the basecamp near the banks of the Ivalo River. On arrival, pull on your thermal layers then continue onward to the small village of Koppelo — deep in the Finnish countryside and far from the glare of the bright city lights.Here, take a seat in your sled and zoom deeper into the wilderness toward Lake Inari with your guide. Along the way, watch the night sky for sightings of the famous Northern Lights shimmering and swirling above. Enjoy a warming dinner and hot drinks by the open fire, then return in comfort to central Saariselkä to conclude your 5-hour tour.
