We liked a lot. The experience is unique and you have to live it. The basecamp is very welcoming and the guides have been very entertaining. In bad weather you can also see the northern lights and that is appreciated. We don't even want to imagine how they will be valued in good weather. Thank you very much for the experience.

Unfortunately we didn’t see the northern lights, however the atmosphere was brilliant- very relaxing and warm! much better than standing out in the cold. we sat around the fire watching the sky hoping, lovely hot chocolate!

Absolutely amazing. Saw the northern lights and had a great educational experience to know how to watch for them on the remainder of our trip. 10/10

no Northern Lights but David super friendly and kind. got to see the red from the volcano. such a cool place.

Lovely set up, really friendly guide, highly recommend
