Snow-mobile and Northern LightsJanuary 31, 2017 in Finland ⋅ ☁️ -7 °C
We had warm breakfast at Levi Panaroma Hotel and headed over for our 2.5 hour snow-mobile experience . It was an amazing view- more difficult than a jet-ski with the snow offering an unexpected resistance . They offered warm drink , cookie and teepee (Finnish tent)experience as a part of the tour.
At night we made the decision to explore snow-shoeing atop hill at Levi. This turned out to be an amazing decision since we got to see the Northern Lights . It was amazing to find out that northern lights move and they have a head and tail. It was interesting to hear about the Finnish belief that conceiving a child during northern lights sighting yields a baby boy! Our guide also told us tales about Finnish forest and had a stopover for warm drinks making the snow-showing experience very memorable. Word of caution though- Snow shoeing can be very exhausting especially in biting cold that is required for northern lights sighting.(*Remember to carry your DSLR camera here)Read more
