A new totally immersive Arctic adventure has been launched allowing guests to embark on an epic snowmobile adventure through Norway, Finland and Sweden – before ending up at an iconic glass roofed hotel on skis to hunt for the Northern Lights.
Organized by Arctic travel specialists Off the Map Travel, this new adventure staying at the Aurora Wilderness Camp is available for anyone traveling from January to April 2019 and is based out of the spectacular Arctic destination of Kilpisjärvi, in northern Finland.
After your full day snowmobiling adventure, guest will stay for the night in Northern Finland at the beautifully appointed glamping cabin which is towed into a remote wilderness location, deep in the Arctic Circle, perfectly situated for lying back to experience the Northern lights from the comfort of your bed.
The mobile room, which importantly includes a clear Aurora viewing roof, is placed in the best possible location for Northern Lights hunting in the wilderness six kilometers east of Kilpisjärvi. Once the winter ice has thawed the rooms will then be relocated to a new home for the following season.
Measuring 2.5m wide, 4.5m long and 2m tall, the hotel room on skis includes a comfy 160cm super wide bed to lie back and take in the night sky, a table, dry toilet and a heater with thermostat to ensure a warm and cozy night.
When they arrive, guests will also have exclusive use of the cabin’s snowshoes and kicksleds giving the chance to explore the surrounding area. The specialist guide will then teach guests how to make a campfire and grill some local sausages for dinner and leave guests with local snacks and hot drinks to fuel an evening of Northern Lights hunting.
Statistically, the Kilpisjärvi area has more clear night skies and records more Northern Lights activity than any other place in Finland. Experts have estimated that if the sky is clear visitors have more than a 70 percent chance of seeing the Northern Lights.
