Auroa View Kota
Inside the Aurora View Kota

Magical venue for a private wedding experience

The Aurora View Kota is the ideal venue for couples who wish a private experience in a non commercialised setting.

Whether you´re planning a small intimate wedding or for a larger party up of up to 18 guests this unique venue in its winter wonderland setting will ensure your Lapland wedding dreams are fulfilled.

Hidden away in the spectacular wilderness at the edge of a frozen lake lies the unique Aurora View wedding venue. Reached by a snowy 2km trail your magical wedding experience unfolds when you arrive at this remote kota. In this most private of settings the dark Arctic day is gently lit by flickering candles and outside fires, giving a magical look to your most memorable day.

Imagine your guests excitement as they take their seats in a horse pulled sleigh and embark on the ride down towards the frozen lake. The groom travels with the wedding party and waits at the kota for the arrival of the bride in her own horse or husky drawn sleigh.

Marry Inside the cosy Kota

Inside the kota, the Magistrate waits to marry you. Make your vows inside the rustic kota, creating a unique and unforgettable experience.

After the ceremony as a newly married couple, you can relax with your guests inside the cosy traditional Lappish Aurora View Kota, decorated with reindeer furs and candles. Sit by the warm flickering fire and enjoy a celebratory drink and wedding cake. Afterwards wrap up warm for the return sleight drive back up the snowy trail and your onward transport back to your resort accommodation.
