Northern lights student camp
'The northern lights student camp tour is our reaction onto the inspiration that we got from students that came to Kiruna northern Lights for an entire night. The basic question was always "why do all Northern Lights tours end so early when it is known that the strongest activity is to expect after 23.00 ?" Of course it is always about the logistics and safety in wilderness travel !
Still we have been working on a solution... If you plan to travel to Kiruna with a bunch of people mainly to see the Northern Lights this is the perfect tour for you !
At app. 19.00 in the evening your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in town or from the train / bus station. After a car transfer to the basecamp you'll get warm clothes (overall, boots, cap, mittens). You'll get a ride as passenger in the trailer behind the guides' snowmobile to the Aurora camp at the shore of lake Sautus outside Jukkasjärvi. The wide open space above this big lake and the remote location grant perfect view onto the sky toward north - no city lights can disturb the view onto the Aurora.
A simple tent in genuine Kåta-style with open fireplace will give shelter and your guide will work nightshift: He will keep the fire going and hot coffee and tea will be available all night long. Hot soup and sandwiches are available at all time.
You can spend the night active on the solid frozen ice of the lake and watch out for the Northern Lights or just enjoy the beauty of this incredible landscape at starlight.
Whenever you feel cold or hungry you're welcome in the shelter. Take a coffee and sandwich and have a smalltalk with the guide before you go out to watch the Northern Lights again!
At 06.00 next morning you will go back to the basecamp by snowmobile/trailer to get a car transfer back to town or to the airport.
Please note the following details:
THE NORTHERN LIGHTS IS A NATURAL PHENOMENA LIKE SUN, RAIN, WIND OR THUNDERSTORM - WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL SEE IT DURING THIS TOUR !
But IF it will appear during this night you'll be at the best place to enjoy it ... and no guide will tell you that it'll be time to leave soon - because your guide will be working nightshift. Friendly and professional.
This is not an overnight tour! There are no beds, no sauna, no dinner, no breakfast, no further activities!
It's just about to give you a real chance to watch the Northen Lights without any time pressure and from a top location without any disturbing city lights!
