Description of Lapland Autumn Northern Lights holiday
This Lapland Northern Lights holiday takes place in Finnish Lapland during the autumn months, which are not as well known as potential Aurora hunting time, but a stunning time of year to visit these wilderness regions. This small group holiday is based in a waterfront hotel on Lake Inari, where you will get a chance to, hopefully, see the Northern Lights reflected off the lake but also take in the seasonal leaf changes in the forests all around. Located north of the Arctic Circle, you get to experience this wild and wonderful landscape before it freezes over. The autumnal season is known as ‘Ruska’ locally, with everything changing colour by the day, and some flurries of snow thrown into the already magical mix if you are lucky.
The price of this autumn Northern Lights holiday includes two night trips to local Aurora Camps, where you sit and wait by a camp fire with your guides in a chosen location where lack of light pollution and other conditions make it perfect for potential light sightings. You will also get a chance to seek out the Lights with expert guides on a night time minibus trip with the rest of your group. During the daytime, you can take in the Sami Museum or shops or enjoy a guided hike around the surrounding area, which is a wonderful trip into nature at its most tranquil but also flora and fauna rich.
At the family owned hotel where you stay, you will have a choice of rooms as well as some cosy log cabins and also glass roofed Aurora cabins. Do chat with us about options available at time of booking. All meals are provided as is winter clothing. The price of this holiday also includes return flights London to Ivalo (via Helsinki), with regional departures also an option. We recommend this holiday for anyone over the age of fifteen years old.
