You will be taken by a Sámi guide with minibus into the dark polar night outside Kiruna to witness the heavens with the flickering northern light, or guovssahas as it is called in North Sámi language.

Introduced to the basics of northern light and nocturnal photography you will try to capture images of the aurora borealis, yourselves and the natural surroundings with camera. Depending on the aurora forecast you choose different locations by minibus and on foot; and warm-up in the lávvu-tent or forest cabin where Nutti immerse you in Sámi stories connected to the light and the arctic lifestyle.

Hot drink and snack included. Loan of camera, torch and tripod also included. Min age 10 years.
