According to deep-rooted local traditions, the Northern Lights are formed when an Arctic fox, with its tail, stirs the snow in the forest, generating the magical, colorful sparks that paint the night sky. Rovaniemi, given its privileged location near the Arctic Circle, emerges as one of the best places to witness this natural and unique phenomenon in the world. To get the best photos, we offer you the opportunity to join tours guided by expert photographers or sleigh tours through the Lappish forests overnight. These are just a few of the unique experiences that await you with Next Destinium.
