Northern Lights Safari on Snowmobile
Hunt the northern lights on a snowmobile. Take the snowmobile out in the wilderness where the northern lights are most visible and savor a dinner in a warm cabin.
A clear sky, darkness and some patience are the best ingredients for hunting the northern lights. On this tour, you take a snowmobile out in the wilderness, where the northern lights are most visible, away from light pollution.
An exciting adventure where you both get to drive a snowmobile and have a chance to see the northern lights. You share a snowmobile, or drive your own, through the dark winter landscape, following your guide. The guide will frequently make short stops to tell you about the northern lights as a phenomenon, how it occurs, and for you to watch and have time to take your own pictures.
Along the way you stop in a warm wilderness cabin where the guide serves a two-course dinner. The experience continues on the way back and the northern lights have hopefully danced for you before you return to ICEHOTEL.
