We cook and eat dinner together in our own BBQ hut alongside the hotel, with a beautiful view of Lake Torneträsk.
The dinner is a local Sami dish called 'souvas' with local vegetables. We cook in a very large dish in the center of the room over an open fire, in the old-fashioned Sami way. Souvas is made from lightly smoked reindeer meat and is delicious. There are vegetarian options, please let the Reception know if you would like one.
Experiencing sitting and eating beside the fire inside, with the doors open and the view over the lake to the hills on the other side of the glittering water is a wonderful to spend an evening.
Starting time 8pm. Duration about 2-3 hours. Includes food and soft drinks. You can bring your own alcohol if you wish.
Minimum 4 people

Our Aurora BBQ is great and you stay warm while you wait for the northern lights to appear. We highly recommend it!

We don't let the weather bother us, we sit and enjoy the fire and the food and relax in the warm bbq hut while we wait for the northern lights to appear.
Once we are happy and full, we take the snowmobiles or minibuses out to find a great spot for seeing and photographing the aurora. We stop as soon as we see it and always have plenty of time for taking photos. Our guides can help you get a good shot, on your camera.

We start the BBQ between 18:00-20:00, depending on the time of year and weather conditions that day (earlier in the season, it needs to be later so that it is dark. In December, we can start as early as 18:00). Ask at reception for the starting time.
