Autumn Aurora Tours

In Rovaniemi, Lapland

The 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, although the common misbelief 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.

Autumn Northern Lights Tours in Rovaniemi

Our Resort is between two lakes in Finnish Lapland, making it the perfect spot for 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 simultaneously see the Northern Lights on the sky and the water surface.

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 (late September – early October)
  • Fewer travellers in the area, smaller groups
  • Colors of the Northern Lights are stronger because of no light reflects from the dark ground, compared to the amount of reflection from the snowy ground.

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.

All our activities launch from Apukka Resort, situated at Tutkijantie 28, 96900 Rovaniemi, and unfold within exclusive private lands.
