This is a private tour, conducted exclusively for groups upon request. Simply check the calendar for a free date and make a reservation!
Enjoy the beautiful winter nature of Northern Finland while on our Aurora Hunting safari in Oulu. With a bit of luck, the highlight of the tour is a dance of Auroras across a starry Northern sky. We are proud to collaborate with Thomas Kast, a top professional in Northern lights tours, who serves as a trainer and consultant for Nallikari Safaris.
The Aurora Hunting safari begins at the Nallikari Holiday Village reception, typically between 8-9 PM. In the beginning, participants have the opportunity to change into winter clothing. After changing, the experience continues with transportation to the Northern lights viewing location in comfortable cars or a bus. Please note that the effort of finding the location best suited for the conditions may require spending a couple of hours in vehicles during the evening.
While your group is transported, you'll get to meet our guides who'll share insights on Finland's winter nature and the auroras. They will also assist your group with camera and smartphone settings to help capture this unique experience.
While we strive to provide the best experience possible, it is important to realize that Northern Lights sightings can never be guaranteed. If the weather forecast indicates cloudy or snowy conditions that make sightings impossible, we offer two alternative solutions:
1) We will organize a snowshoeing safari in enchanting dark winter forest of Oulu. We'll also set up a campfire for frying sausages and brewing pot coffee over the open flames. Enjoy the enchanting forest scenery in glow of headlamps and gather around the fire as we share stories about the Northern winter nature and the mesmerizing aurora borealis.
2) The safari is cancelled with a 75 % refund of the service price.
Please note: Changing a date of a safari is usually impossible on short notice and for this reason the service price does not include an option for changes one week prior to the service.
Remember, cameras often capture the colors of the Northern Lights more vividly than the human eye, but this in no way diminishes their natural beauty. For a better idea of what to expect, please visit: https://salamapaja.fi/aurora-colors-eye-and-camera/
