This safari suits well for beginners too.

Northern Lights Hunt with huskies will embrace the romance and the beauty of the Finnish winter wonderland as you set of at night by dog sled. Powerful headlights cut through the darkness of the winter forest. As the forest gives way to the open frozen lake, on a clear night the sky opens up before your eyes offering the possibility to see the scenery of the northern lights.

Relax by the warmth of the fire in our traditional Mongolian Yurt as your guide serves up a traditional “musher’s burger”, then step outside for another spectacular view of the night sky. Enjoy this unique adventure being driven by your personal guide as you are wrapped in the warmth of reindeer hides, or join in the driving, either way this tour will glisten in your memory for a long time to come.

Snowshoe adventure is the perfect way to explore Vuokatti’s winter landscape authentically. You start from the Safari Center where you will be teached how to use the snowshoes.
