It was a bit cloudy allmost till whereever we drove which is not the operator fault so I won't reduce rating for that. We stopped by 3 nice locations at night and if I remember the name correctly Sofia was enthusiastic and kept the motivation high and at the end we had a good fireplace and hot lingumberry juice and some sights of Aurora as well. Skręć clicked a nice picture for us. Thank you

It was a very nice trip and a super good guide named Joey! Unfortunately we didn’t see the northern light so well but that’s not their fault cuz no one can control Mother Nature. We stopped at beautiful places and had a bonfire with marshmallows and hot lingonberry. I’m super happy for this trip and such a nice guide! :)

Not too lucky with the weather. We managed to see a little thanks to the great guide full of energy and funny. We walked on the frozen lake and ate roasted marshmallows... So, I still had a good time.
