The trip was very easy to book, our guide Chris was very friendly and knew Finland well. He drove us to a spot on the lake that had server groups meeting there to watch the northern lights. We saw a beautiful aurora and had a smooth trip. It was quite busy and a lot of people were there The only negative was the lady at the office who was managing the winter clothes she was extremely rude and demanded we give her our clothes and shoes in order to borrow winter clothes that are included in our tour price. She said we would steal them. It was a very unpleasant start to the trip.

It was cloudy all day, so I didn't expect much, but the bus drove me to a lake in the suburbs where there was no light. Thank you for coming. When you go outside, it's really aurora! A bright green aurora in the shape of . The food was really delicious, and it really became the most wonderful memory of my life. thank you.

Great ! Coach excursion with several members of staff on board, who each speak a language, our guide who was French was really cool, on the road the first aurora borealis were out, we stopped unexpectedly at a gas station to benefit ! Great time. Then we went to a spot which was on a frozen lake where we could see another aurora! Of course there is always the luck factor! The team was very pleasant with good explanations of this phenomenon. The moment of sharing in the tepee with the barbecue was really friendly. I highly recommend ! Thanks to the team!
