Who hasn’t dreamt of looking up at the sky and seeing the transcendent view of the gorgeous Northern Lights? And now, Off the Map Travel, a travel company, is offering a special sustainable and socially-distanced tour that takes visitors to Finland for a special aurora viewing experience. Called ‘Stars of Scandinavia’, the tour offers bespoke experiences to all who wish to indulge in this once-in-a-lifetime journey.

A six-day tour across the country begins in Tromso, where a husky sled ride takes you on your search for the aurora and you’ll spend the next day under the stars in an igloo cabin in Kilpisjärvi that allows for the best view of the Northern Lights. With a clear sky above you, the tiny town will be a divine experience for those seeking respite from the madding crowds amid some snow.

From here, travellers can continue their Arctic journey down south to Rovaniemi, Finland, where design-forward igloo cabins will enthrall all residents with their full glass-dome ceilings over their bedrooms, fitted with low-level red lighting to help your eyes adjust to the brilliance of the night.

And aurora borealis is not the only highlight of this meticulously designed exploration. On offer are more daytime activities that let you soak in Scandinavian life, including dog sledding, a bike tour over the tundra, and snowmobiling. You will also get a chance to have a glimpse of the majestic Lapland reindeer, while enjoying an in-depth understanding of the Sami culture.
