Aurora Holidays

Our cottages are located in the northernmost part of Finland, right near the Norwegian border. We are 8 kms from the village of Utsjoki, along the road towards Nuorgam. We are an excellent choice for those who wish to see the northern lights as we are about as close to the North Pole you can get in the EU. And the closer you are to the North Pole, the better your chances to see the northern lights. If one of yours is to experience the amazing northern lights, why not do it with us? It’s not just any old Aurora chasing, but a chance to experience the northernmost town in the EU, where the odds you’ll see the northern lights are the highest around! A very special adventure is waiting for you! Make your dreams come true and get a chance to cross something off your bucket list. The cottages face directly north. It means that you can watch auroras from your window, the terrace or the yard, all night long if you like. Even if aurora activity is quite low, which means auroras will not be directly overhead, they will be on the northern horizon. They really give you the absolute best chances of seeing northern lights. So even if we are not with you at the time, we want to maximise your chances, with this excellent location. You can check what is happening in the sky any time. Pets not allowed.

You decide what kind of a holiday you’d like to have. You can spend your days in and around the cottages or you can take part in our organized activities. It’s up to you!

In summer we have 24 hour daylight and the famous Midnight Sun. In summer you can fish – the mighty Tenojoki river runs in the font of the cottages. In summer you can also do mountain biking, canoeing, hiking and it´s easy to make a visit to the Arctic Ocean.
