See the magnificent Aurora Borealis in Northern Lapland!
Our cottages are located in the northernmost part of Finland, close to the border with Norway. We are 8 km from the village of Utsjoki, along the road towards Nuorgam. We are an excellent choice for those who wish to see the Northern Lights.
Aurora Holidays is a local Sami family business; we are principally a reindeer farming family with our reindeer corrals located next to our cottages. For generations we have followed the traditional Sàmi way of life, and are an integral part of our local community, supporting other local businesses.
Your holiday with us begins on a Tuesday and ends the following Sunday. On theTuesday when you arrive, we will pick you up from Ivalo airport. Depending on the road conditions, it is about a two hour drive to Utsjoki and your cottage. The drive takes us through a magical landscape of fields, forests and frozen lakes, with the possibility of seeing some reindeer, moose or other wild animals.
The cottages are right on the banks of the river Teno. There are steps from the cottages down to the water’s edge where there is a open fireplace and a shelter, where our guests can sit in comfort enjoying the Northern Lights for as long as you like. Our cottages also have verandas where guests can relax and and take it the sights. All our cottages are of the highest quality, equipped with everything you will need, including your own sauna to warm up after a cold night chasing the lights.
We will be at your service during daytime on Wednesday to Friday, from 10.00 am to 3.00pm, if you need us. In the evenings, we will be with you chasing the Auroras from 7.00 pm to midnight.
You decide what kind of a holiday you’d like to have. You can spend your days in and around the cottages or you can take part in any of the many organized activities around the area.
