Hi Cherie481,

Thank you very much for contacting us. We can usually guarantee all snow based activities like dog sledding from December 1st to March 21st of the following year.

There is nothing like the best time for aurora viewing, because all depends on solar activities and the aurora performances have nothing to do with temperatures or seasons on earth. If you are flexible in your time of travel, you might want to avoid a full moon phase, because the moonlight can take away some of the weaker aurora displays. The time period between 7 days before and after a new moon is considered ideal.

Please feel free to browse our website for more information. Thank you very much!
