Would you like to go searching for magical auroras? The Northern Lights Riders can take you on an aurora expedition by car, exploring the calm backroads of Lapland. You'll get a great chance to soak in Lapland’s beautiful scenery, while sitting comfortably in a warm car as you search the skies. Hot drinks & snacks are included as well.
Northern lights are best seen in the evening and at night. Even if it was dark at 14:00 - 19:00, the appearance of the Northern Lights at that time is very rare. This is why we run our tours between 21:00 - 02:00, which tends to be the peak time for this phenomena.
We have found that, due to our regional knowledge and experience, 4 hours is the right length to discover the Northern Lights. Sometimes we've been up for 6 hours at no extra charge due to changing circumstances and because we wanted our customers to see the Northern Lights.
It would be easier and more profitable for us to organize shorter trips, which would significantly reduce the likelihood of discovering the Northern Lights. But we want our customers to have a unique journey while getting to see the Northern Lights.
