Room in a sleigh is the mobile camping solution to see the northern lights

In the north of Finland, the Aurora Wilderness Camp created a solution to get the best view of the aurora borealis in the sky.

For most hotels, the view of the natural landscape around them is generally a plus and even fundamental for some guests. However in the north of Finland, the greatest natural atraction is in the sky.  The demand of tourists to see the aurora borealis in the northern skies made the Off the Map Travel company create the Aurora Wilderness Camp, a luxurious mobile camp, which is basically a room on a large sleigh that allows guests to “move” the lodging to the best location to see the northern lights in the sky.

Indeed, the room, can be coupled to a special vehicle to ride on ice and to be transported to a better position in the Finnish Arctic. It is a cabin for two people with 4.5 meters long, 2 meters high and 2.5 meters wide. Inside, there is a beautiful bed, a desk, gas heater and an external bathroom. The plus is a glass ceiling that allows guests to watch the aurora borealis from the comfort of their bed.

The lodging includes sleighs and special shoes, as well as drinks, food and a good breakfast. Currently, the three cabines made available by the company are in the remote village of Kilpisjärvi, in northern Finland, where you´ll find the cleanest night sky in the country and more Northern Lights to watch. Visitors have reported that there is a 70 % chance of seeing the aurora borealis there.

The complete package includes airport transportation, two nights in a beautiful chalet and one night in the mobile cabin for US $2000.
