RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT WINTER CLOTHING AND CAMERA GEAR
We recommend you wear thermal underwear, warm socks, warm jacket and ski pants.
We will provide winter clothing: winter overall, boots, gloves and hat/helmet. The temperatures in the arctic can be really cold and it’s not rare with temperatures below -20 celsius. We recommend you to wear our winter clothing on top of your own clothes.
BRING YOUR CAMERA! Have a fully charged battery or even better have an extra with you.
THE NORTHERN LIGHTS IS A NATURAL PHENOMENON
The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon, thus we cannot guarantee that you will see it during your trip. If you are traveling in Swedish Lapland from end of August to end of March, chances are good that you will be able to observe it. If you travel in April it is unlikely to see the Northern Lights as days are already to bright.
