The driver and the guide are really lovely people ! They were trying their best to make us comfortable and see the aurora even if the weather wasnt so convincing. The waiting with fire was a pity though, because we waited for 2 hours or more in the cold without seeing it (vividly).

Even though we managed to get a glance of northern lights but what matters is how much efforts were taken by the tour guides. It was their determination and passion to Not send us back empty handed, and hence they drove us till Finland to make sure we get the best we can on that day. Jennifer was a delight, she shared so much of her personal experiences and knowledge helping us understand the science behind those aurora’s. My husband and I had a lovely experience and would recommend them to all my friends and family

Our tour was really nice! Although the northern light activity was low out tour guide was amazing and gave us the best chance to see the lights. Took pictures of us and sent them all the next day. We also had some lovely stew and treats around the fire! Would highly recommend!
