Silence & Nature Tour
On this 7-days tour you will stay six nights far away from the closest villages to have best chances to see Northern lights (Aurora Borealis). You will explore the pristine Arctic nature of the Pallas-Ylläs national park and it’s surroundings on snow-shoes, forest skis, husky sleds and reindeer sleighs. We take at most six guests per week to ensure a personal and cozy atmosphere. On most tour weeks we hardly meet other people. This is no mass tourism! It’s a tour for you, nature and silence only.
This tour is accessible to anyone who enjoys outdoors and occasional trekking. It can be tailored as a private tour and to fit your personal needs.
