Aurora Hunting Safari 15.3.2024


Optional Cultural Program for Full STEAM in Oulu Participants
March 15, 2024

Experience the magical winter nature of Northern Finland while hunting Northern lights in Oulu! With a bit of luck, the highlight of the tour is a dance of Auroras across a starry Northern sky.

The Aurora Hunting safari commences with donning the provided warm winter gear. Following the change, the experience unfolds with transportation to the Northern Lights viewing location in a comfortable bus. Please be aware that the endeavor to find the location best suited for the conditions may entail spending a couple of hours on the bus during the evening.

As your group is transported, you will have the opportunity to meet our guides who will share insights on Finland’s winter nature and the auroras. They will also assist your group with camera and smartphone settings to ensure capturing this unique experience is a breeze.

While we aim to provide the best possible experience, it’s important to recognize that Northern Lights sightings can never be guaranteed. If the weather forecast predicts cloudy or snowy conditions, making sightings impossible, we offer an alternative activity (see details below).

Keep in mind, cameras often capture the colors of the Northern Lights more vividly than the human eye, but this in no way diminishes their natural beauty. For a better idea of what to expect, please visit this website.

Schedule: Friday, March 15, 2024. Departure at 20.00 from front of Oulu City Hall (address Kirkkokatu 2a).

Duration: 3,5-5 hours depending on the Aurora sightings.

Included: Guiding, transfers, rental of winter clothes (overall, winter boots, beanie, gloves), snacks and hot beverages.

Program is organized when there is minimum of 10 participants. Program is confirmed to take place.
