Polar Night Ski Touring in Inari (Finland)

During this tour you can experience real wilderness, do cross country skiing during the polar night, see the Northern Lights and also visit some stunning nature locations and learn new wilderness skills.

On this trip, schedule and circumstances permitting, we will do fishing on the ice and eat freshly cooked fish, right there in the wilderness. At the time of our tour, the Lapland polar night is always at its best that gives us an opportunity search for the Northern Lights on the dark sky.
