20:30 - 00:30
Spend the evening at the best location in Rovaniemi for spotting the northern lights.
A bus will pick you up from Rovaniemi City or Santa Claus Village. After a 15 minute ride north you will arrive at Apukka Resort, a perfect spot for viewing the northern lights. You will spend the most active aurora hours here, adventuring our area in your own pace.
Apukka is far enough from the city lights and we have open view all around us by the lake. When the ice is thick enough, you can even walk on the frozen lake and see the whole sky.
We have ice log cabins and even an ice carving workshop where you can try making ice art yourself!
You will learn interesting facts about Aurora Borealis and the science behind them. You get to hear the legends behind Aurora Borealis and how people have admired the lights in the sky for ages. On request you can also try glow fried salmon under the night sky. Aurora Adventure is once in a lifetime experience and simply a must if you are visiting Rovaniemi.
