Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your tour guide and adventurous group of like-minded travelers at the tour office in central Rovaniemi. Alternatively, pickup is available at selected Rovaniemi hotels. 

    Get a brief orientation and a fitting for a buoyant, high-quality rescue suit (over your clothing). This garment makes it possible for you to float in 0-degree water while staying warm and dry. 

    Travel to a private, hidden lake, deep in the Lappish wilderness. Don your protective suit and wade into the near-freezing lake under the cover of darkness. Lay back and allow the suit to its job; all you need do is simply float. Once you get comfortable, you'll only hear the beating of your own heart and the rustling of the arctic wind through the snow-covered trees. Allow yourself to relax completely and take in the serene atmosphere while watching the spectacularly starry night sky. If the conditions are right, you may be treated to an appearance of the elusive Aurora Borealis. 

    After your float, warm up with some hot drinks and plenty of towels. Return to central Rovaniemi at the conclusion of your activity.

    Dear Joyce T, Thank you so much from your wonderful review. I'm glad to notice Martin has managed to show you the beauty of floating even on cloudy weather. We can never guarantee to see the northern lights but we definitely can guarantee an experience of a lifetime :)

    We did the Ice-floating with Jukka and it was a great experience. We were a small group so we really had the chance to talk to our guide, who was super friendly and caring, and connect with the others from the group. We didn't see the Northern Lights, but floating in the dark
