    The tour was amazing.. we weren’t able to see Aurora Borealis due to snowing but the nature of the tour is beautiful and we highly recommend it. Alex was our guide and he is the best! Very friendly, super helpful and full of information on Northern Lights, nature , wild animals etc. It was great being in a small group next to the campfire, listening and sharing various stories, eating cookies and drinking blueberry tea .. walking on frozen lake… everything was great really :)

    Well in short it was an amazing experience with or without the Northern lights. We got packed in warm clothes from the company so that we survive the cold. Then we went to the location by the river with a full moon but covered with cloud above us. there were bonfires so we had hot berry juice, cookies and bbq marshmallows. The day had a very strong activity for the light show but then the sky was covered with snow. The company waited for the sky to clear more than the assigned time of the trip. More than half of the group left after few hours because of the cold. Right after their departure the sky cleared up for 20 mins and we saw Aurora borealis. Stronger than the night before what an out of the world experience when you expect the least. We also had a forest hike under the moonlight to the nearby forest before that.

    Everything was perfect. The excursion was like they planning. Nigth was cold and they did a fire for heating up us. They help us with the configuration for the cameras. Besides, we were with the kids and they let us know to stay inside the car for being even more warm.
