This newly-launched excursion takes place at a secret lake in Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland.
The elusive northern lights have fascinated travelers for generations and fueled wanderlust as it ranks high on many a bucket list.
Unique experiences include seeing the aurora borealis from your bed in a glass igloo in Iceland to watching it from a polar expedition cruise.
However, UK-based travel company Off the Map Travel has introduced what may be the coolest way to see these marvels of nature yetâ€“while floating on your back in an Arctic lake.
Called the Aurora Floating Experience, the three-hour Northern Lights excursion takes place at a secret lake in Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland. It starts off with a short, candlelit walk to the water, where youâ€™ll be guided to a neatly cut hole in the lakeâ€™s frozen surface, which will serve as a lounge chair of sorts.
While this sounds slightly terrifying for anybody afraid of the cold, worry not as participants will be outfitted with cozy thermals as well as a head-to-toe dry rescue suit.
Simply lie back, relax, and watch as the magical sky show begins.
This experience is available only to those who book a full Off the Map Travel itinerary, which includes transportation to and from the airport, as well as accommodations at the Arctic TreeHouse Hotel, priced at about US$1,730 per person.
