What you'll do

Welcome to an hour full of magical stories and myths about Northern Lights!

Aurora Borealis has always fascinated people around the globe. Together we discover ancient beliefs and legends underlined with pictures and videos. Listen to tales and get wrapped up in my personal stories.
We will have a look at the scientific explanation too, but in a very easy understandable way - I promise.
Learn about the best times and spots to chase the dancing lights and how to read the forecasts. Will you become a Northern Lights expert? We wil find out in a short quiz.

Get ready for a cozy experience from MY LIVING ROOM in Finnish Lapland and let me take you on a virtual journey above the Arctic Circle with pictures and videos.

Please be aware that it is NOT POSSIBLE to show you the Northern Lights live.

No question will be left unanswered.

Please be aware that this experience will be held in ENGLISH. Experiences in GERMAN every TUESDAY or on request (send me a message).

I am a Swiss living in Finnish Lapland, far above the Arctic Circle. Coming here 5 years ago to work as a guide, I soon discovered my interest and passion about the Northern Lights. I can't get enough of them!

I spent nights outside chasing the polar lights, what also got me into photography.
The best thing ever? Sitting around a campfire telling stories, waiting for clear skies and the lights dancing in the sky.

As a multilingual allrounder you will find me usually working in an ice hotel, at a reindeer farm or even as an elf for Santa.

Wir sind als Familie zusammen mit Anja in die bezaubernde Welt der Nordlichter eingetaucht. Wir haben viel Neues gelernt und wunderschöne Aufnahmen der Lichter gesehen. Absolut empfehlenswert auch für Kinder. Unsere zwei (7j + 9j) waren fasziniert und Anja konnte auch die komplizierteren Inhalte kindergerecht erklären.

Wir waren eine große Gruppe von 12 Erwachsenen mit Kindern und haben die Nordlichter Führung für einen Geburtstag unserer Mutter gebucht (70+). Die Buchung erfolgte schnell und unkompliziert. Die “Reise” selbst war informativ, kurzweilig und abwechslungsreich mit tollen Bildern und Erzählungen von Anja. Anja ist sehr gut auf unsere Gruppe eingegangen und Groß und Klein hatten Spaß! Eine tolle Abwechslung in der aktuellen Zeit.
