    Loved it We all really enjoyed it I wish it was a little less pricey We would have loved to all have a turn on the bikes themselves but at over 500 euros for a few hours we had to give that a miss The ladies at the shop were so lovely and friendly Our tour guide Anna was so super brilliant, helpful and very informative She drew us diagrams in the snow of how the northern lights work Fascinating and so clever She was brilliant We loved it all I didn’t expect to see the northern lights so would have been just such a bonus if we had Beautiful experience travelling through the forest at night on the sledge Thank you!!!!!

    We had lots of fun!

    We were on the nightly "hunt" for northern lights on a frozen lake, quite far away from Rovaniemi. It was totally spectacular. We have never had such a good view of the stars. On the way we found them then: Northern Lights. Only weak, but they were there. Later in the evening they became so strong that we even could photograph strong lights at our hotel. The nocturnal sleigh ride is a great adventure and I would recommend it to anyone. But beware: it must be clear in the night sky.

    We just have to come back again!

    We didn't see the northern lights but the warmer weather that the cloudy conditions helped with made up for it! We took a sleigh ride into a frozen lake in the middle of nowhere on our own with the guide in the dark. The adrenaline was going and despite the lack of northern lights we had a thought provoking, life-changing experience. Thank you
