Mount Reindeer also called Porovaara is the perfect spot for viewing the magnificent Auroras Borealis. Cozy up by an open fire in the warm Kota, or outside while you grill sausages and sip on some hot berry juice, all while admiring the gorgeous Northern Lights.
In the evenings, at the best time to see the northern lights/aurora borealis, we organize northern lights trips to Sky Aurora Station which is special platform and one of the best places in Rovaniemi to admire Northern lights.
We will pick you up from your accommodation, city center/Santa Claus village and take you about 20 kilometers away from Rovaniemi city center. After we arrive at Mount Porovaara where Sky Aurora Station is situated, we will make a fire in a big wooden Kota, where you can grill sausage by the fire and taste some lovely, hot juice.
Kota is located on top of a hill next to river Kemijoki, at an excellent place to see the northern lights. The views open towards the northern sky where the Aurora Borealis mainly occur.
We will enjoy snacks by the fire and will visit a fenced area where dozens of reindeer live and pasture in the winter. Everyone can pet reindeer and feed them with lichen. Lichen is their favorite and very important food in winter and some of them cannot resist it but will do anything to get a piece of it.
