Autumn Aurora Borealis Tours
in Rovaniemi, Lapland
Our Autumn Northern Lights Excursions
( September – November )
Aurora Borealis season begins every year in late August and lasts until early April. Some of the best Northern Lights shows are witnessed in autumn, even though the common idea is that the Lights are visible only on cold winter nights. We prove this idea wrong on our autumn Aurora tours in Apukka Resort and its surroundings.
Our Resort is located between two lakes in Finnish Lapland, making it the perfect spot for especially Autumn Auroras. The Aurora Borealis’ speciality in autumn is the so-called Double Aurora phenomenon. This happens when Aurora arches are reflected to open water, and you can see the Northern Lights on the sky and the water surface simultaneously.
Reasons to hunt Aurora Borealis in autumn (September-November):
- Chance to see the Double Aurora phenomenon
- Comfortable nighttime temperatures compared to winter nights
- Auroras usually are very active near the Autumn equinox
- Fewer travellers in the area, smaller groups
- Colours of the Northern Lights are stronger because of no light reflection from the dark ground, compared to the amount of reflection from the snowy ground.
Our professional guides lead you to nature to hunt the Northern Lights by husky or horse carriage, boat, or car.
Kindly note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon. Participating in an Aurora excursion in Apukka with a professional guide will increase the chances of witnessing the Northern Lights. Still, we can never fully guarantee their appearance.
