The focus of this photography tour is the Rovaniemi area and you will travel by minivan. The experience starts with a team meeting about the tour of the day. You will get a short briefing about current weather conditions, Aurora forecasts and about the destination of the day. 

Northern Lights are always unpredictable and there is no guarantee that they will be found every night. However, Beyond Arctic gives you the best possible chance to experience and photograph these mystical wonders of the Arctic area. What sets Beyond Arctic apart from other tour providers is a genuine determination of finding the Northern Lights.

  • Live information feed coming direct into our minivan

Altogether they have over 50 locations from which they will choose the best ones each night! After reaching the destination you will leave the minivan and continue on foot to reach the perfect spots in the middle of the nature.
