Our guide was Salvatore and our driver was Kami. Both were very friendly and funny. We were picked up at our location. Everything went great. It was super comfortable at the location. Salvatore told us a lot about the Northern Lights too. He was very dedicated and caring. A great experience. I highly recommend it.

Our guide, Salvador, was incredibly knowledgeable about the northern lights and a joy to be around. Picked us up punctually at our accommodation and ensured we were all warm before we set off. Even though there was about 30 people in the tour that day, we were split into smaller groups and that gave us an opportunity to learn a lot from Salvador! Reached the campsite where we had a fantastic bbq experience. Unfortunately we did not manage to catch the lights but the entire experience was unforgettable because of our guide. Definitely would recommend!
