Owners Tiina Salonen and Mika Länsman, along with their friend Emilia Tuomi, started running their northern lights spotting holiday tour, Aurora Holidays, last year. The couple rents out cottages for five-night stays where visitors get to experience the magic of the northern lights. Utsjoki is a unique village, located by the River Teno, right on the border between Finland and Norway. It has a population of just over 1,200, so visitors will surely enjoy plenty of untouched nature and wild, peaceful scenery surrounded by the fells. “We’ve lived here all our lives, so we know the area like the back of our hands,” Salonen says.
