Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city, relax in the forest surrounded by the Arctic ice and enjoy the silence. Watch the sky as the Northern Lights dance overhead and see the reflection in the lake!

    You will embark on a journey to view the majestic Northern Lights while floating in a crystal lake. The activity place is about 15 km outside of the city, where there is no light pollution. The guide will show you the icy lake surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape, the ideal place to observe this natural phenomenon.

    Once you are in one of the warm, waterproof survival suits, it’ll be time to float around. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights will appear in the sky overhead. Your tour guide will provide you with the best information about Ice Floating and the Northern Lights. You will be offered hot blueberry tea and gingerbread during the activity.

    We didn’t get to see the Aurora Borealis but went on the ice floating activity and then a hike since we got time left. Michal is a great guide who told us all about the activity and some other things about Finland and his home country. Great activity and I totally recommend it.

    It was an interesting experience. It’s very peaceful when I was floating on the water. There's no time limit, so you can float for as long as you like~
