Kiruna aurora

Aurora campfire dinner with snowmobile

Lean back and enjoy the ride to a wilderness camp built of snow. We drive you on a cozy sled behind a silent 4-stroke snowmobile. At the camp we have a good view on the night sky and eat dinner by the campfire away from the city lights. We serve a traditional meal with reindeer. Let us know if you prefer a vegetarian dinner. We have time to take pictures by the campfire and hopefully with the Aurora Borealis dancing in the night sky above. We bring a camera with a tripod and if you like we will send you the pictures.

Price: 1200SEK/ person;

Minimum 2 people/ tour

important information

We pick you up in Kiruna town at your hotel at 18:30 and drive to our village about 15km south of Kiruna. Here we provide winter clothing including winter overalls, boots, mittens and winter hats. After the “dress up” we start driving out with the snowmobile. For pictures of the aurora please bring a tripod because you need a long exposure. We will bring one camera and a tripod and take pictures which we can send to you. At about 22:00 you will be back in town. In case you want to drive a snowmobile we need to see your drivers license. We also need a signature from you on the insurance agreement. The agreement includes an excess of 6000SEK in case you damage the snowmobile.

aurora borealis

the aurora is also called polar lights, northern lights (aurora borealis) or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions (around the Arctic and Antarctic). Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere due to Earth’s magnetic field, where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying color and complexity.
