All very well! The guides very attentive and friendly. The collection at home was very organized, the clothes they gave us in their offices are quite warm, the transfer to the places where they could be seen (we had no luck, it was very cloudy), the typical barbecue with reindeer sausages -very good- and the photos that take us in the frozen lake that are very cool !! If we have a chance, we will go again!

A friend of mine did enjoy the experience a lot. Totally recommend it. Photographing the northern lights without professional cameras is a tough thing to do, so that's a reason why to do this tour. Our guide, Noemi, was great, always trying to make sure we could drive to a place with open cleared sky. Not only did we get amazing pictures of the Northern lights, but we also got to see the Milky way and had some pics taken. It's always up to the weather anyway, but they do make a great effort for costumers to get their money's worth. Barbecue and te were also tasty, but that wasn't as important as the previously mentioned things.

I didn't know the location (we didn't realize why we were the parent and child, but all the other people were gathered, so there is no worry) I didn't! Also, warm clothes and shoes are prepared in the office, but there is no hat, so you should have a knit hat! In April, it was from 22:00 instead of 20: 00… It ’s a bit late to update the information here… I think I was able to afford it, so I took a bath, organized it for checkout the next day, etc. Was done and the result was all right! I didn't see much in April, but it looked perfect! I wanted to see it before I died, so I achieved it at the age of 20 and am now surprised! The guide is a professional photographer who will take pictures and send you a lot of photos the next day! I'm so happy to be commemorating! At my time, we were 8 people including parents and children! I was worried about seeing the review, but I think it's a safe tour with Japanese people participating! He had prepared reindeer sausage and
