We had a great time with Salvo and Jaime! The pick up was on time and very smooth. I also borrowed boots from them. We arrived at our destination after 30 mins ride. Even though we couldn’t get to see the northern lights, we enjoyed some BBQ in the tent with some soup and bread. They explained us so many things about Lapland and they have many stories to tell. It was a great experience overall, definitely would recommend these guys!!
