Details

The Finnish wilderness is known for its Aurora potential and the locals certainly know how to make the most of Mother Nature’s greatest show. The Northern Lights Village in Levi is an exceptional example of this - where Aurora Cabins come as standard for the duration of your trip and all facing north to give you the best possible chance of witnessing a display as you lay tucked up in bed.

The Northern Lights Village is situated 16km outside the centre of Levi, taking you away from light pollution and into the sublime surroundings of the Finnish wilderness. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore the pristine landscape with the included daytime activities of snowmobiling and dog sledding - both unforgettable ways to complete your Arctic experience.

As darkness falls, this remote location also puts you in prime Northern Lights territory and we have included two dedicated hunts by snowshoe and heated sleigh to help you track them down. What’s more, your itinerary also features a Northern Lights photography workshop where an expert will show you how to capture the phenomenon on camera - the perfect souvenir!

The real showstopper of the trip, however, has to be your accommodation for the duration of your stay. Your Aurora Cabin means that every night, long after the Northern Lights activities are over, you can continue your search of the skies from the comfort of your bed!

This carefully crafted itinerary has been designed to offer a complete mixture of daytime Arctic adventures with nighttime excursions to help you tick the stunning Northern Lights off your bucket list. All before retiring to your unforgettable Aurora Cabin accommodation each night!

Escape to Levi’s Northern Lights Village where your glass-roofed Aurora Cabin awaits in the Finnish wilderness. Spend four nights searching for Mother Nature’s extraordinary display from the comfort of your bed as well as on dedicated Northern Lights activities. During the daylight hours, get the full Arctic experience with dog sledding and snowmobiling.

Meeting with your local guide, you will receive a full safety briefing and instructions on how to drive your snowmobile before setting off into the enchanting snowy forest. Along the way, you will stop to take photographs of the stunning scenery and enjoy hot drinks before taking off again into the wilderness.

You will ride two per snowmobile with the option to swap halfway or you can request to ride individually for a supplement. Please note, you must be at least 18 years old and hold a full driving licence to be able to drive a snowmobile.

Today you will have the day completely free to spend as you please. If you would like to fill your time with another Arctic adventure, see our ‘personalise’ tab for more information on the activities on offer. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the restaurant as usual ahead of your Northern Lights hunt this evening.

You will meet with your local guide who will fit you with snowshoes and show you the easy techniques needed to travel into the silent night. Then you will take off into the peaceful forest, walking over the deep snow and keeping an eye on the sky for any sign of the Northern Lights.

As you make your way through the wilderness, you will reach a cosy hut where your guide will build a fire and serve some hot drinks and snacks. You can ask your guide any questions you may have about life in the north – just make sure you keep taking a look outside for a potential Aurora display! Following your break in the wilderness hut, you will make your way back over the deep snow and return to the village.

You will be out for approximately 2 hours tonight.

Today following breakfast you will get to experience one of the most-loved Arctic activities; dog sledding.

After meeting with your expert musher, you will be introduced to your loyal team of sled dogs who will more than likely be barking loudly as they will be eager to get going. Your guide will explain all the techniques needed to mush the dogs and you will receive a full safety briefing before you stand on your sled and get ready to set off.

Though the dogs may be loud beforehand, as soon as you lift the brake and the dogs take off into the wilderness, they will soon quieten down and concentrate on the job at hand. With your team out in front, you will ride over the snowy trails and through the forests on this unforgettable winter adventure.

You will ride two per sled, with the option to swap drivers halfway through. The activity will last approximately 2 hours, travelling for approximately 10km.

Upon your return to Levi, you can enjoy lunch and dinner in the restaurant before your Northern Lights hunt this evening.

Meeting with your local guide, you will take a seat in the heated Aurora sleigh as your guide pulls you along using their snowmobile. You will travel into the silent, snow-laden forest as you keep an eye on the night sky for signs of the Northern Lights.

Travelling away from any light pollution, you will reach a prime Aurora viewing location where you will set up your cameras and keep warm by the fire. As you enjoy hot drinks, your guide will tell you all about the Northern Lights and with any luck, they will start to appear overhead.

You will be out for approximately 3 hours.

Accommodation

Northern Lights Village Levi
     
 

Located in the far north of Finland, 16km away from the centre of Levi and close to the ski resort (approx. 14km), the Northern Lights Village sits tucked away in its own piece of wilderness. 

With 40 Aurora Cabins, you’ll have the brilliant opportunity to view the Northern Lights right from your bed. Each cabin comes equipped with a half-glass roof with the twin or double beds situated underneath. This is one of the few places in the world where you’ll prefer a sleepless night! 

All cabins are in walking distance of the restaurant which serves local, Lappish delicacies. 

Facilities

The village restaurant takes inspiration from the traditional wooden Finnish tipis with Lappish décor. 

Using flavours from Lapland and the Barents Sea regions, the restaurant serves local food and special delicacies. Breakfast is a buffet of continental options and some hot dishes. Evening meals are a buffet with starters of soups and salad, and then a choice of local meat or fish will follow. Dietary requirements are all well-catered for as long as we are informed at the time of booking.

All activities start from The Northern Lights Village (except the husky safaris and art gallery) to make your holiday as easy as possible.
