What you will do
If you are in the Utsjoki area during winter, you are more than welcome to join us as we go out chasing the northern lights around the most northern town in the EU. We will pick you up from Utsjoki village around 7pm and you will come out chasing the northern lights with us for a few hours and we’ll drop you back off in Utsjoki village at the end of the night.
Depending on the northern lights activity and weather forecast, we could leave Utsjoki entirely and head for Nuorgam (the northern most town in the EU), Tana (Norway) or even into the Finnmark fjords in Norway where we’ll be touching the Arctic sea.
Our day tours gives you the best chances of seeing northern lights in case of low activity or clouds. Although northern lights can never be guaranteed.

Aurora Service was originally set up by me, Tony. A long time ago I was actually British, but I left there in my mid twenties, after doing a bit of travelling and finally settled in Finland. That was some years ago now (as I am approaching my mid thirties) but one of the best decisions I ever made. My northern lights “addiction” came by chance. As I was standing in the snow on a bitter cold night after a sauna, I was looking up at the star filled sky when something green appeared. At first I thought it was cloud, but then after a while, I started realising it was a bit special. So I put some clothes on and went back out in search for that green cloud (which I now know was a diffuse aurora).
The Green cloud turned into an explosion of colours as (I now know) I was witnessing my first geomagnetic storm. And that was it, I was hooked! So I’ve personally been chasing auroras in Finland for 5 years now. Not a night has gone by in all that time where I haven’t checked the solar wind data or had a quick glance at the recent solar activity before going to bed. It is safe to say, I eat, sleep and breath auroras. Indeed, where as most people like their house with a southern exposure to catch the sun, I done the opposite and actually moved to a house facing North, so I could keep an eye on the northern horizon (where the auroras are).
After a few years of aurora chasing I created a website exclusive to European aurora activity. Aurora Service was born. Providing useful information, tools and tactics on how you can see Northern Lights in your area (in the event of a geomagnetic storm mainly, just like I did on that cold night!). It has been a great success, I have had many people contact me, thanking me for making the website as it has enabled them to see the Northern Lights for the first time!
It’s a great feeling knowing that you have helped people see this amazing phenomenon. And it is that feeling that has led me to where I am today, offering to take people out personally to see the northern lights. Because that feeling is what makes it all worthwhile.tours.aurora-service.eu
