Winter activities

Northern Light safari – Experience this incredible nature phenomenon and take great pictures of it! Even if the Northern light is often associated with Tromsø and Finnmark counties, the activity can be large even further south. In Mo I Rana it has been an increase in activity as much as 80 to 100 days during the winter season, that is from November to April. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this amazing and spectacular phenomenon.

Northern Light Gourmet evening – Experience the genuine food and culture, originated thousands of years ago! Ancient sounds, traditional handcraft, and a long-standing reindeer culture meet new technology and a modern way of life. We pick you up at your hotel, and take you to AAHKAN AERNIE, the Sami lavvo at Storli Camping, where you meet the real Sami culture, and let you taste and experience the ancient and genuine food, culture, stories and joik that has followed the Sami people for centuries.

Sami culture and Northern Light – Experience this nature phenomenon and what the Northern Light meens to the Sami people. A unique and peaceful experience in the dark winter night. The Sami guide take You on an unforgettable experience into their culture. Hear stories about the Sami culture and Northern light, and if You are lucky, the Sami guide will perform the ancient song, joik. This experience will take place even if the weather conditions are against us and the Northern light is absent.

Hiking on snowshoes – Snowshoes are frames with braids that you clamp on the feet to prevent immersion in loose and deep snow. The snowshoes have been used for thousands of years in Asia, North America and Europe, and they were a very useful tool for hunters and trappers during winter time. We at ExploRana love all outdoor activities, also snowshoe-hikes. We would just love to take you out and let you experience this easy way to hike through the loose and deep snow! There are many places here in Mo I Rana suitable for this activity, so join us on either a day-hike or a night-hike under the starry sky! Maybe, just maybe we will see a troll?
