Know More about this tour

Wrap up against the evening cold and start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Ylls hotel or central Yllas in the early evening. Then, relax in your minibus or coach with your guide as you drive into the snow-laden wilds around Ylls.

During your journey, hear how the Snow Village is rebuilt to a new design every winter using 1,000 truckloads of snow and ice. Listen, too, as your guide shares fascinating facts about the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis. Discover how the lights are caused by electronically charged particles colliding with atoms in the Earths atmosphere, triggering moving beams of color. Sightings can never be guaranteed, but the lights appear fairly regularly on winter nights in Lapland.
As you approach, take in the sight of the stylishly illuminated Snow Village, and admire the array of cleverly lit snow sculptures that surround the buildings.

Then, step inside to watch a multimedia presentation on the Northern Lights. Learn more about this dazzling natural phenomenon and see snippets of some of the most spectacular displays ever seen in Lapland. After, head outside in search of your own display. Cast your eyes upward, and with luck, you might catch these magical lights overhead.
Next, enjoy a guided tour inside the enchanting Snow Village. Walk around the colorfully lit lobbies and halls, and learn how the interior temperature remains at a comfortable 23F to 28F (-5C and -2C). Gaze at the stunning outdoor sculptures, and enjoy a hot berry juice.
Later, drive back to Ylls, where your experience finishes.
