    Shihab was extremely informative and passionate about showing us the Northern Lights! Loved our interaction with him - he’s definitely one of the friendliest guides we had throughout our visit to Finland. Also got lucky with the weather and managed to catch a few great glimpses of the Northern Lights!

    Was unfortunately unable to see the Northern Lights due to poor visibility/weather conditions, but overall pleasant experience. Our guide was very professional, friendly and very passionate about the Northern Lights. He provided a lot of explanation about how the Northern Lights come about, and was constantly on the lookout for where we could best catch it. We lived slightly outside of the city centre, and were picked up and dropped off at our accomms. Provided with overalls and winter boots, which were very handy in the cold weather. Guide built a fire, and also offered us hot berry juice and some snacks (biscuits and marshmallows).
