    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

    Unfortunately, no northern lights to see

    The staff was very nice and dedicated and went to great lengths to search for new Northern Lights despite the bad weather conditions. I think it's a pity, however, that for the price offered no alternative, for example, a nice place where you would have seen something else and could have taken photos or a break with hot drinks etc.
