17.SEEKING NORTHERN LIGHTS BY REINDEER
When it gets dark, we start our exploration of the magical Aurora Borealis. We take a bus to a reindeer farm where we enjoy the mystical twilight on the reindeer sleigh ride. Lapland’s winter is not totally dark after the sunset. White snow reflects the light and the colors of the sky in a mystical way. With a clear sky, we can see the stars and sometimes also the full moon. If we are lucky enough, we might also see the Northern lights dancing in the sky. After the reindeer ride we gather to a Lappish tepee to listen to interesting stories about reindeer and to enjoy a hot drink, sausage and a pancake.

Snowmobiling in the beautiful twilight time in the evening provides a different kind of nature experience. We drive to the woods away from village Ylläsjärvi and stop in a Lappish tepee by a small lake, where we have a hot drink by an open fire. If the weather is clear, we will spot the bright stars of the sky. Do you know Stella Polaris or Orion belt, what about Sirius, the brightest star of the sky?

 20. SEEKING NORTHERN LIGHTS BY TRADITIONAL FOREST SKIS
Come and try the traditional way of skiing in the night time. Instead of regular cross-country skiing on maintained ski tracks we will head to the deep snow in the forest. For this we will use special forest skis that are longer and wider than the typical cross-country skis. If the weather is clear, we head to a small island in the middle of Lake Ylläsjärvi and see if we can spot Northern Lights. If the weather is cloudy we ski in the forest looking for tracks of arctic animals.

 21. NORTHERN LIGHTS ICE-FLOATING
Dip yourself into the frozen lake for an amazing and relaxing experience! If the weather is clear, we can see beautiful stars and may even get to marvel magnificent Northern Lights. This guided step is totally safe with high-quality rescue suit that covers your whole body and keeps you dry. As you have your own clothing under the suit you will not get cold even in the open 0-degree water. Lying down in the ice hole between the ice blocks is something worth trying, the circumstances truly are arctic! After floating you have time to go around the fire place and enjoy a hot drink and biscuits.
