    We were picked up on time from the hotel and drove to Santa Claus Village to change shoes, it was so magically lit, then drove in two groups to a frozen lake, great starry sky, we stayed late and hoped. Through the camera, I saw the pilar lights earlier, unlucky. It was freezing cold, didn't see much else but laughed a lot, happy atmosphere, very nice support. Warm juice and cookies, colorful international group. Thank you for the lovely evening

    It was great fun. Unfortunately it was cloudy and there were no northern lights to be seen. We were picked up exactly at the pick up time. We went to the office for extra clothes. After that we had three stops. 1 at a large lake, 1 at a beautiful river with bridge and 1 with a beautiful view where we started making a campfire. We were allowed to enjoy hot drinks and delicious cookies. We had a friendly and sociable guide.

    The tour was amazing.. we weren’t able to see Aurora Borealis due to snowing but the nature of the tour is beautiful and we highly recommend it. Alex was our guide and he is the best! Very friendly, super helpful and full of information on Northern Lights, nature , wild animals etc. It was great being in a small group next to the campfire, listening and sharing various stories, eating cookies and drinking blueberry tea .. walking on frozen lake… everything was great really :)
