Finland Northern Lights Tour

March 25, 2019 - April 1, 2019

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to see the shimmering Northern Lights dancing overhead? To find out, join Sky & Telescope’s Observing Editor Diana Hannikainen on a journey above the Arctic Circle deep in Finnish Lapland for a Northern Lights tour.

The trip kicks off with a couple of days in Finland’s capital city, Helsinki, where among other things you will see unique architecture, Finland’s own brand of Jugendstil known as the National Romantic style. You will then have the opportunity to explore the ruggedness of Finnish Lapland, learn all about the local Sámi culture, and enjoy a sauna the traditional, Finnish way. Reindeer sleigh rides and husky safaris as well as a visit to Santa Claus's lair are all in the program. But all of this is just added bonus — on clear spring nights, there is a good chance of witnessing the Northern Lights.
