We were very lucky to have the chance to see the Northern lights that night as the amazing Jenni and Laurent (tour guide) were telling us there was no clear skies for the past two weeks!! I am very greatful to Jenni and Laurent for everything they did to keep us entertained! The campfire and stories made everything worthwhile! Definitely recommend this tour!

The tour was really great, our guide Tommy was really nice cool and helpful. We couldn’t see any nothern lights but we had a delightful time by the fire and the lake. I totally recommend this tour..

The weather was so bad that I couldn't see the stars, let alone the aurora, but the guide did my best to entertain me while using Japanese. The view of the lake and the forest alone was wonderful and made a good memory. I was also grateful that you lent me winter clothes.
