When the short northern day turns to evening, we harness the dogs and begin our 20-kilometer journey in the magical wilderness of the Riisitunturi fjell. We will ascend on top of the Jaksamovaara, far away from the light pollution to the best viewing spot there is. The views are breathtaking.

The ride ends at the wilderness lake cabin just next to the National Park, where you’ll be greeted with a wilderness dinner and a delicious dessert, together with a warm sauna and sweet dreams inside sleeping bags. If the northern lights turned out to be shy that evening, you will have the whole night to observe sky. The cabin area is completely free of light pollution, so you will have a great chance of spotting the aurora borealis!

The guide will leave you in peace for the night. Breakfast will be delivered to the cabin to be enjoyed at the guests own pace. You will be picked up at an agreed time, latest at noon, to get back to civilization.

This program will be done always private.
