watch northern lights at night

Northern lights nightshift

This tour is our reaction onto the inspiration that we got from guests that came to Kiruna to see the aurora borealis / northern lights. 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 mainly to see the Aurora Borealis / Northern Lights this is the perfect trip for you !

At app. 21.00 in the evening your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in town. After a car transfer to the basecamp you'll get warm clothes (overall, boots, cap, mittens). We will continue to a remote wilderness camp outside Kiruna. The wide open space and the remote location grant perfect view onto the sky towards north - no city lights can disturb the view onto the Aurora.

A simple and rustic cabin with open fireplace will give shelter and your guide will keep the fire going and hot coffee and tea will be available all night long. Soup with reindeer meat and bread are included as well.

You can spend the night active outside and watch out for the northern lights or just enjoy the beauty of this incredible landscape at starlight.

When ever 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 03.00 AM next morning you will go back to the basecamp and we will bring you back to town or to the airport.

IF aurora should 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 further activities - just the beautiful winter landscape at night and with some luck fantastic aurora!
