An incredible experience! We were a family of four ( children 9/6) they loved every moment! Wrap up warm and take a couple of extra snacks ( to keep the children happy). The husky and reindeer farms / rides were fab ( they included a very informative talk from the owners with hot drinks/ snacks. The snowmobile was brilliant fun ( above an hour ride) The group split into two ( faster and slower) the guides were friendly, talkative and informative! We all loved the experience!

Barbara was wonderful. He searched for us the aurora in several places without getting tired and without being discouraged. Thanks to his perseverance we finally found our Northern Lights. The photos arrived promptly the next morning. The clothing was also very comfortable and warm.
