Northern Lights Safari
A Finnish winter activity break during the winter months is the perfect time to go in search of the elusive phenomena, the Northern Lights. This spectacular light show can often be seen against the inky backdrop of Arctic skies. Although sightings cannot be guaranteed, there is no better way of tracking them down than on an exhilarating night time snowmobile safari. Clear conditions that are undisturbed by artificial lights are preferable for seeing the lights on this winter activity break. Warm yourself around a crackling fire as you sip coffee and marvel at the starry canvas which envelops you.
